Issue 11:1&2 will be our final print issue.

Our submission portals are closed for the foreseeable future.

In general, the Seattle Review is interested in exceptional, risk-taking, intellectual and imaginative (as if these could ever be separated) work.

We only publish long poems, novellas, and essays. What do we mean by long? Poetry at least 10 pages in length and prose of at least 40 (double-spaced) pages in length. Any submissions shorter than these minimum lengths will be rejected unread. Please use a standard font (Times New Roman, Garamond, or the like).

The long poem can be:

  • a single long poem in its entirety

  • a self-contained excerpt from a book-length poem

  • a unified sequence or series of poems

We do not accept paper submissions. Please only submit one piece at a time online through Submittable during our reading periods.

Currently, we do not consider, or have a place for, genre fiction (sci-fi, detective, etc.) or visual art.

Please do not email us submissions or request feedback on rejected work. 

Contributors receive two copies of the issue in which their work appears.
