Submission Guidelines

***Owing to the overwhelming number of submissions we have received, we have now paused submissions through Submittable. Thank you for your understanding.***

The Paris Review accepts unsolicited submissions of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry for the print quarterly via Submittable during the months of March and September.

All submissions must be in English and previously unpublished. Translations are acceptable and should be accompanied by a copy of the original text. Simultaneous submissions are also acceptable as long as we are notified immediately if the manuscript is accepted for publication elsewhere. While the magazine welcomes unsolicited submissions, it cannot accept responsibility for their loss or engage in related correspondence.

We suggest to all who submit that they read the most recent issues of The Paris Review to acquaint themselves with material the magazine has published. Subscriptions are available here.

Due to the volume of submissions and the closure of our offices in 2020 and 2021, please note that editorial responses are taking longer than usual. As of March 23, 2022, we are pausing our acceptance of hard-copy submissions sent by mail, and submissions postmarked past March 23, 2022, will not be processed. If you have not received a response to a hard-copy submission sent by mail before September 2021, you should consider your submission kindly rejected. This does not apply to submissions received via Submittable. We thank you for your patience and for sharing your work with the Review.
