The Sierra Nevada Review is an annual literary magazine published in May featuring poetry, short fiction, and literary  nonfiction. Editors read manuscripts from September 15th until February 15th.  Response time may vary between several weeks and several months. 

We publish writing that leans toward the unconventional,  surprising, and risky. We appreciate experiments in form and content,  and prefer works whose meanings deepen on repeated readings.

Please upload no more than five poems or five pages of poetry, whichever comes first. Fiction, literary nonfiction, or hybrid works should not  exceed 4,000 words. We welcome flash fiction and nonfiction submissions. Please send only one submission per reading period, in one genre only. Additional submissions will not be considered. 

If you have previously contributed to The Sierra Nevada Review please wait a year to re-submit. 

Contributors receive two complimentary copies. Writers retain all rights.

We are searching for an image that is beautiful but subversive. We would like something that draws the reader in while making them think, even disturbing them in a sly way. Nothing kitschy. Something that lines up with the review's aesthetic: "writing that leans toward the unconventional, surprising, and risky. We appreciate experiments in form and content, and prefer works whose meanings deepen on repeated readings." Ideally our cover art will also be surprising and risky, the meaning deepening each time the reader looks at the cover.  
PDFs please.
