There are presently no open calls for submissions.
We had some problems opening Submittable this year, for which we apologize. The submission system is up and running now, and we appreciate your patience.
Oyez Review accepts previously unpublished submissions of fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry and art. There are no restrictions on style, theme, or subject matter. Oyez Review is open for submissions from August 1st to October 1st each year, but please check each genre category, as certain genres may close earlier than others. The journal seeks First North American Serial Rights on all submissions, in addition to the requisite digital rights to distribute each issue of the journal as an e-book. Simultaneous submissions in any category are not accepted.
Prose guidelines: There is no length restriction for either fiction or creative nonfiction, but owing to space limitations, we are unlikely to publish anything longer than twenty pages (about 5,000 words).
Poetry: We consider submissions of up to five poems, not to exceed ten pages total.
Art: We feature one visual artist per issue, typically featuring ten pieces of art between an eight page art section, front cover, and back cover. Given that each issue features one artist exclusively, we recommend submitting a thoughtful, extensive sampling of work of around twenty-five images. Oyez Review accepts work in color and in black and white.
