The Evansville Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

After adding online submissions, we pleasantly got flooded with submissions of poetry and fiction. In an effort to keep our response times reasonable, we are closing our submissions for both poetry and fiction. We are still actively looking for nonfiction, short plays, and cover art. Thank you so much for sending us your work!

We are interested in work ranging from the traditional to the experimental. We welcome submissions from established writers as well as new voices.

We do not publish work that has been previously published elsewhere. Please don’t submit more than one submission in a given genre while a decision from us is pending. 

Simultaneous submissions are encouraged as long as you notify us immediately if your piece is accepted elsewhere. If any of the poems in your online submission are selected for publication elsewhere, email the editor at to withdraw the individual poem(s). We will continue considering the rest of your submitted work. Payment is two contributor’s copies. 

Submissions open on September 1 and close on December 1.
