We at A River & Sound Review are proud to publish an online literary journal that features the best in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and humor. We ask that you accept our invitation to submit your work.
Our reading periods are open from February 1 to May 31 and August 1 to November 30. Simultaneous submissions are considered, as long as the editors at A River & Sound Review are notified immediately if the manuscript is accepted elsewhere first. Writers are limited to one submission for each genre per reading period.
Response time ranges from one to four months, but we'll do our best to offer a prompt reply. Only previously unpublished manuscripts will be considered. Literature in translation is welcome too. We pay upon publication: $25 for poetry, $50 for prose.
See descriptions below for what we like in submissions. If that's not enough, check out our editor interview on Duotrope. We furthermore post updates on Facebook and Twitter, announcing where we are in the process of reading submissions and considering them for acceptance.

We consider submissions of up to three poems per entry. We consider all forms and styles of poetry, including narrative and lyric.
We consider submissions of short stories up to 4,000 words in length. There are no limitations on form or subject matter, but we do enjoy stories that are driven by a compelling narrative voice, dynamic characters and a plot that makes the story worth reading.
We consider submissions of creative nonfiction manuscripts--including memoirs, essays, and reviews--up to 4,000 words in length. There are no limitations on form or subject matter, only that the essayist cover ground that makes the familiar unfamiliar and the unfamiliar familiar.

We are still producing our live literary productions and releasing them as podcasts. If you've ever been to one of our shows, or listened to it on podcast, you know it's a fresh and humor-filled presentation of a literary reading, one like you've never heard or seen before.
