Submission Guidelines

Hi! We’re closed to submissions until October 1, 2017. We’re looking forward to reading what you will send. Thanks.

The Big Windows Review seeks poems primarily but will also consider short prose. We prefer work that is beautiful and/or strange, whatever that might mean to you. Try us!

Our plan is post a new poem or piece of short prose on the site every Friday. Then, a few times a year, we’ll bundle up those poems and prose pieces to make a free digital issue of The Big Windows Review. We might also do occasional print issues.

Email 1-5 poems and/or 1-2 pieces of short prose (no more than 500 words per prose piece), along with a 50-word third-person bio, to thebigwindowsreview@gmail.com. Either attachments or body of email is OK.

We accept only original (meaning that you are the creator of it), unpublished work.

Expect a response from us within a month of submission.

If we accept your work for publication, you will get good exposure (you can send links to people all over the world), a publication credit, and the pleasure of having your work appear with that of other creative people–but, alas, no monetary payment.

All rights revert to you once we publish the piece. All we ask is that if you publish the piece elsewhere you mention us as having first published it.

We will archive your work on the site indefinitely. If you wish to have your work removed from the site, please contact us.

We look forward to hearing from you!
