Indiana Review will be accepting submissions of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction for General Submissions as well as our Metallic Grit themed folio starting on September 1, 2016. We are seeking work that addresses this theme and welcome all creative interpretations.
We think of Metallic Grit not only as a theme but also as a showcase of the enduring yet protean quality of writing. During times of change and uncertainty, it is crucial to remain resilient. We wonder about the raw materials that go into the creation of a metallic object or being. The process requires work and heat to arrive at its luster. There is a lasting grit when something undergoes such change. We call for work that will not only interrogate what creates something or someone resilient but also investigate this hybridity—its multifaceted nature.
Stun us with work that employs unforgettable form, language, character, landscape. Shock us with beauty without forgetting its grit.
SPECIAL FOLIO SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:
General and Special Folio Submissions are open from SEPTEMBER 1 until OCTOBER 31 (MIDNIGHT EST). We will only accept submissions during this submission window.
There is a $3.00 reading fee for all non-subscribing submitters.

Indiana Review will be accepting submissions of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction for our Ghost issue starting on September 1, 2015. We are seeking work that addresses this theme and welcome all creative interpretations. In considering the Ghost theme, we wonder: How can we excavate disappearance and evaporation, loss in all its forms? How can what is left materialize before us or vanish noiselessly into the dark? This issue will be full of cool fog and soft light—the living glow inside the body. Read more…
Many members of our Indiana Review staff are fortunate enough to teach Introduction to Creative Writing as well as Poetry and Fiction writing courses here at Indiana University. We are even luckier to have a talented student body eagerly interested in both editing and submitting their own writing, and as instructors, we love to help get them involved to this end.
Indiana Review and Indiana University’s W280 Literary Editing and Publishing course have decided to team up and create a space for any currently enrolled undergraduate student to submit POETRY or SHORT FICTION (up to 5000 words) to us for consideration in our once-annual issue of Indiana Review Online: an Undergraduate Project. This inaugural issue will be published on Indiana Review’s website in January 2016 and will be wholly edited by undergraduate IU students enrolled in the course. Please see a complete list of submission guidelines below. Read more…
Call for Indiana Review’s Special Themed Folio: MIDDLE SPACE
Bending the rules of craft is not a new thing. Bold steps and subtle transformations are how we move forward in literature, in society, and in ourselves. For a special folio in our Summer 2014 issue, we’re seeking work—in both form and content—that blurs genres and breaks down preconceptions, narratives of transgression that make us question our boundaries of what a literary work is and can do.
Keywords to consider and inspire: boundaries, borders, limits, edges, duality, on the verge, transformation, transgression, travel, movement, bodies, collapse, collage, correspondence, collaboration, middle space.
