The White Review‘s print issue is quarterly; the online issues are monthly. All submissions, both fiction and non-fiction, must be in English and previously unpublished.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. We do our best to answer all queries, but if you don’t hear back from us within twelve weeks please feel free to submit elsewhere. All print and online submissions should be sent to submissions at


Poetry submissions should be limited to three poems only and emailed to poetry at 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.
