PFN – CHESTNUT REVIEW (“for stubborn artists”) Invites Submissions Year Round

December 8, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


We appreciate stories in every genre we publish. All issues free online which illustrates what we have liked, but we are always ready to be surprised by the new!

Genre-specific Guidelines

Submit up to six poems (three for free submissions). Length and format are open. Poems should be single-spaced. Begin each poem on a new page, and clearly indicate when a poem extends beyond one page. There are no absolute length limits, but remember that the longer a poem, the better it has to be. We strongly dislike submissions that consist of only one poem.

Flash: Submit one piece of no more than 1000 words. We do accept micros, and we publish both fiction and creative nonfiction. Please only send one piece at a time regardless of length. Flash submissions are free.

Prose: Submit one piece of between 1000 and 5000 words. Prose submissions can be works of fiction or nonfiction. We do not accept excerpts of longer works.

We never solicit written submissions—all come through Submittable. Please do not email us submissions; they will go unread. We occasionally solicit art submissions, primarily from DeviantArt.

Staff submissions. No past or present staff member of CHESTNUT REVIEW may have their work appear in the magazine.

Minimum age. All those who submit work must be at least 18 years of age.

Unpublished work only. We only accept unpublished work that has not appeared in any publicly-accessible form previously, including online.
