Moon City Review accepts submissions of fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, graphic narrative, translations, and book reviews. Please use our online submissions system at Submittable to send us your work. Besides attaching your file, please use the text box to type in a cover letter. This is the only way to submit to Moon City Review—USPS submissions will neither be read nor responded to. Since submissions are open year-round, response times may be slower in the summer.

Fiction

Authors are limited to one story (up to 8,000 words) or three shorts per submission. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable if prompt notification is given through Submittable of its acceptance elsewhere.

Poetry

Authors are limited to six poems total per submission period. Please submit poems in a single file. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable if prompt notification is given through Submittable of the poem’s acceptance elsewhere.

Creative Nonfiction

Authors are limited to one essay (up to 8,000 words) or three shorts per submission. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable if prompt notification is given through Submittable of its acceptance elsewhere.

Graphic Narrative

Moon City Review now welcomes submissions of short-form, literary graphic narrative (fiction, nonfiction, poetry). Please keep submissions to eight pages maximum. Black-and-white submissions only. Submit in .jpg, .tiff, or .pdf format. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable if prompt notification is given through Submittable of its acceptance elsewhere.

Translations

Translators should submit works from contemporary authors and should be ready to submit both the translation and the original piece, as well as proof of permission to translate. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable if prompt notification is given through Submittable of the piece’s acceptance elsewhere.

Book Reviews

Starting in Fall 2019, Moon City Review will regularly publish reviews on its website. We will favor reviews of contemporary books of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and graphic narrative, particularly from small/independent/university presses; we are also looking for reviews of books recently translated into English. We are aiming for reviews of approximately 2,000 words but will go higher or lower if the review warrants the length.

If you have a review that fits this description, please submit. If you have questions or are looking for a review assignment, contact Reviews Editor Katelyn Grisham at katelyn094@live.missouristate.edu.
