Porter House Review is an online literary journal produced in conjunction with Texas State University’s MFA program in Creative Writing.
Reading Period: We are currently open for our Editor’s Prize Contest in Fiction, Nonfiction, and Poetry only, awarding $750 to the winner of each prize. Work submitted outside our reading period or to the incorrect genre will go unread. Please send only one submission per reading period. Submit here. Deadline: Dec 31.
Inspired by the legacy of Katherine Anne Porter, the journal seeks to publish bold and incisive writing that interrogates not only the complexities of the human experience, but also the prevailing social challenges of our time. In support of this mission, we seek unique perspectives from both established, award-winning authors, as well as emerging and underrepresented voices from around the world. We celebrate a wide range of literary forms and styles. We are committed to paying a competitive rate for all published work.
Our Advisory Board includes: Jamel Brinkley, Charles D’Ambrosio, Erica Dawson, Ben Fountain, Cristina García, Carmen Maria Machado, Tomás Q. Morín, Naomi Shihab Nye, Tim O’Brien, Luis Javier Rodriguez, Karen Russell, and Evie Shockley
