The White Review‘s print issue is published three times a year, and new online content is published weekly.
In order to address our current backlog of fiction and poetry submissions, The White Review has decided to close open submissions and trial a submission window model; but we remain open year-round for nonfiction submissions and pitches.
- Entries for the Poet’s Prize will open on 1st September 2018 and close 1st November 2018.
- Entries for the Short Story Prize will open on 1st December 2018 and close 1st March 2019.
- General poetry submissions will open again on 1st January 2019.
- General fiction submissions will open again on 1st May 2019.
All submissions, both fiction and non-fiction, must be in English and previously unpublished. Translations are acceptable and should be accompanied by a copy of the original text. For non-fiction, we prefer pitches but will accept finished pieces. Simultaneous submissions are also acceptable as long as we are notified immediately if the manuscript is accepted for publication elsewhere. Print submissions, besides poetry, should be a minimum 1,500 words in length. All print and online submissions should be sent to submissions at thewhitereview.org.
Poetry submissions should be limited to three poems only and emailed to poetry at thewhitereview.org only. Please make sure to list the titles of each poem within the body of your email.
We accept pitches for interviews with writers and artists: please have a look at our interviews online to get a sense of our style.
We are open to publishing work unconstrained by form, subject or genre with the proviso that it be seriously minded and accessible to a non-specialised readership, with an emphasis on contemporary arts and literature. We are an arts and literature magazine but are interested in all the various fields of human endeavour: law, finance, architecture, music, science, sociology etc. Academic submissions are not encouraged.
