The writing in Atticus Review is unashamed, unadorned, and unafraid. The stories we love are often lonely, and sometimes ugly, but we’re also deeply attracted to the bright, bold, and hope-infused.
We like hybrid, unconventional work that pushes boundaries, elevates and edifies on an intellectual level, that investigates the inscrutable essence of a thing, that avoids artifice to stand firmly in its unique voice.
For the December 2022 issue, Atticus Review is looking for work for our open-themed issue. We are, however, especially interested in work that engages with notions and explorations of language. We are open to any and all interpretations of the prompt.
Thank you for your interest in publishing your work with Atticus Review. We are an online journal that publishes stories, poems, essays and other forms of creative digital media.
Please submit 1-5 poems through Submittable. Simultaneous submissions are OK. In terms of style, our bias tends toward lyrical narrative poetry, though we’re definitely willing to read whatever — so long as it’s your best work! In other words, think of your poems less as sermons and more as snapshots. They can be shocking, serene, heartbreaking, elegant, savage, narrative, surreal — or all of the above.
Send one story of up to 4,000 words. We especially like Flash Fiction. Stories that are 800 words or less. Stories that don’t need a lot of space to get their point across. If you are submitting Flash, then you can submit up to three stories.
We want stories that engage our hearts and minds. Language matters. We like lyrical. We like dark humor. Most of all, perhaps, we want stories that matter.
Send one piece of up to 3,000 words. We especially like Flash CNF: pieces that are 800 words or less.
With CNF, we like seeing the small set against the big picture. We want to know why this matters. We want writing that engages our hearts and minds. We like lyrical. We like dark humor. We like pieces that look inward and confront shame.
