TSR publishes work from established authors and newcomers, but only the best of the best. Please submit only once per reading period, and in only one category at a time. Internet submission is preferred. Please note that all submissions are considered for both TSR: The Southampton Review and TSROnline.


Deadlines: There are two reading periods each year. We are open for submissions from August 15 to October 15 and from February 1 to April 1.

We are grateful to you for your interest in and support of The Southampton Review. Subscription and donation information is available on our website.

Art: We publish a wide variety of art, including fine art, photography, cartoons and illustrations. Artwork should conform to the following specifications: Raster based images (photos/scans) must be 300dpi at 7" wide at least (larger is OK). All files should be in CMYK color mode.

Your cover letter should include your name, telephone number, address and email address. (Ever been an employee of CUNY or SUNY? If so, please note this fact in your cover letter.)

The only stipulation for this category as that the theme/plot/metaphor/etc. of the submission must be about writing. The process of writing, the feeling of writing, the characters or writing. It's broad and open to your interpretation. 

This is not a contest, rather we've created a specific category for poetry, fiction, nonfiction/memoir/personal essay, plays, screenplays, cartoons, art, and photography, that has to do with some aspect of writing or being a writer. Please submit your piece(s) following the guidelines in the other categories (for example: fiction stories should be no more than 7,500, as is stipulated in the TSR Fiction category) and reach out to editors@thesouthamptonreview.com if you have any questions. 

We look forward to reading your submissions!
