The Southampton Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

We welcome your submissions!

(See below for guidelines and then even further below for the "Submit" buttons for each type of contribution.)


PLEASE SUBMIT ONLY ONCE PER READING PERIOD

All submissions will be considered for the print edition or TSR Online.

If you would like to support the work we do at TSR, please purchase a subscription. If you are submitting work, a subscription entitles  you to one free submission per reading period. 

Single Issue Subscription: $18

1-Year Subscription (2 issues): $29


PAY RATES

We are proud to pay our contributors. For poetry, prose, and illustrations, the honorarium is between $75 and $300.

Alas, we are unable to pay current or former (past 3 years) employees/students of any CUNY or SUNY institution.


READING PERIODS

September 15 – October 15
