The White Review is presently closed to submissions. Please check this page for information on future openings.
The White Review‘s print issue is published three times a year, and new online content is published weekly.
All submissions, both fiction and non-fiction, must be in English and previously unpublished.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. If considered for print, you may be asked to extend your submission. Translations should be accompanied by a 300-word translator’s commentary. Please make sure to list the titles of each poem and add the name and address 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. Pitches should be 300-words long and sent to editors at thewhitereview.org
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.
