Longleaf Review: General Submissions

Longleaf Review is publishing individual pieces throughout 2023. Thanks to a very generous donor, we’re also excited to offer a $20 honorarium to each published writer this year (or until funds run out).

Please review our detailed guidelines for each genre on Submittable. It’ll make us super happy (and way more likely to publish your brilliant writing). Generally though, we accept the following genres and word counts:

  • For fiction, please submit 1 piece (flash or short fiction) under 3,500 words in a single Word doc.
  • For creative nonfiction, please submit 1 piece that’s under 3,000 words in a single Word doc.
  • For poetry, you can send 1–3 pieces of poetry per submission opening in a single Word doc.
  • For fiction and creative nonfiction reviews, aim for 850—1000 words, including pull quotes.
  • For interviews, send a Q&A between 1,500–2,500 words, with an optional 250–500 word introduction
