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. Submitting more than once will automatically disqualify all submissions.

You may upload up to 5 images for cover art consideration. If you submit cover art, you may not submit in a written genre.

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.
