Submission Guidelines


We are now accepting submissions until December 1, 2018. Please adhere to the following:

While we are open to all types of content and style, we have some criteria for how to submit your work. Please make this process easier on us and consider these requirements before sending anything. [There have been changes since our previous submission call.] 

1. MS Word & Email: Send submissions as a single Microsoft Word doc to flatbushreview@gmail.com. Please, no zip files, no Notepad, no Googledocs, no work copied and pasted in email. In the body of your email, we would like a brief outline of what you are submitting and your name.

Example: 


     Dear Editors,

     Attached are 3 poems: 
     1. [Title]
     2. [Title] 
     3. [Title]
     Sincerely,                                                                                                                                                  

     Jane Smith 


2. Other than your email address and required information (above) in the body of your email, no other additional identifying information is needed (unless submitting a mixed media project, see # 6). If we feel your work is right for Flatbush Review, we will request your bio at that time. 

3. Poetry: Send up to five [5] poems, each no longer than one [1] page. [If longer, please query first.]

4. Prose: Send one [1] piece with a maximum of 2,000 words. [If longer, please query first.]

5. Visual art: Files should be submitted in jpeg format. Send no more than five [5] images.

6. Mixed media (or any other combination): Send a brief description and sample of any project that falls outside of the parameters as outlined above.

7. Please note, we ARE NOT open to previously published work (unless expressly requested by the editors). 

8. Send us work only once during our open call. If you send us work more than once, anything received after the first email will not be reviewed.

9. It is essential to edit your work before submitting. In regards to punctuation, grammar, and format, all decisions should be intentional and stylistic.

10. Of course, it is understood that you will be sending your work to multiple journals; however, please notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere. 


Our Goals

1. The editors aim to provide responses as quickly as possible; however, in doing so, responses for authors may come through at varying times. If you have yet to hear from us, feel free to send us an inquiry after January 1, 2019.

2. Still, due to other commitments, there is likely to be a brief lull in communication from us.

3. If we like your work for publication but we feel like it needs some "workshopping" before we are comfortable publishing it on our site, we may invite you to work with one of our editors. While this may be unconventional, this gives our authors and our editors an opportunity to engage in a dialogue of ideas and strategies.
