Submissions for Issue 5 are now open until April 30th. Please read guidelines below.
Book review submissions are open year round.
If you have been published in any of our past issues, please wait a few issues before submitting again. Thank you.
Fiction and Non-Fiction Submissions: Please submit no more than two stories with a maximum word count of 6000 words total. Flash pieces are great as well as we have no particular preference on length. Please include a cover letter in the email and notate in the subject line what type of submission you are sending.
Poetry: Please submit no more than four poems at a time. We enjoy both shorter poems and long form pieces. As with fiction, please include a cover letter in the email and notate in the subject line what type of submission you are sending.
Simultaneous submissions are okay (even encouraged as we want you to increase your chances of getting published), as long as you inform us immediately if it is accepted elsewhere. We request the rights to first North American publication and attribution if published again at a later date.
Book Reviews: Open year round: Send to bookreviews at angelcityreview dot com. If you have a new book of poems, novel, or a short story collection you would like to have considered for review feel free to email us. If you would like to submit a book review for publication you can do so at any time during the year. We have no specific style requirements, but we do prefer that your review is well thought out and overall positive (you can be critical of some aspects of the work). Please title your email appropriately.
Please include your address in the cover letter. With the exception to book reviews. We are currently only accepting submissions from writers on the west coast of the United States. Our emphasis however will usually be Los Angeles and its surrounding areas.
Submissions can be sent to submissions at angelcityreview dot com.
