GENERAL SUBMISSIONS

Subscribers to The Georgia Review may submit online at no cost; all other online submissions require a $3 processing fee. 

Submissions should be limited to one story, one essay, one review, or three to five poems. All prose manuscripts must be double spaced. Visual art may be uploaded in a single file or in multiples depending on the artist's needs. 

Please title your file with your last name (ex. Smith.docx), and include your name, address, and email address on the first page of your submission.

Work previously published in any form will not be considered. Please let us know in your cover letter if your submission is simultaneously being considered elsewhere, and likewise please notify us if any part of your submission is known to be included in a book already accepted by a publisher (including the anticipated date of book publication). 

If your work is accepted elsewhere, please let us know immediately by withdrawing your submission. If you need to withdraw a poem from a poetry submission, please contact us here, selecting "Submissions" in the drop-down menu. 

Thank you for sending us your work!

Please submit only one essay.

We are seeking informed essays that attempt to place their subjects against a broad perspective. For the most part we are not interested in scholarly articles that are narrow in focus and/or overly burdened with footnotes. The ideal essay for The Georgia Review is a provocative, thesis-oriented work that can engage both the general reader and the specialist.
We publish full-color reproductions of a wide range of artwork: paintings, photography, sculpture, woodcuts, ink drawings, and more. Usually we feature one work each on the front and back cover plus an interior layout of eight to twelve additional works; our preference is for groupings that display an engaging variety within some overall thematic unity. Submissions should include fifteen to twenty images.





In most cases, selection of titles to be reviewed and assignments to specific reviewers are made by the editors. However, we certainly welcome submissions from outside reviewers. 

In addition to standard reviews (3–5 double-spaced pages) and book briefs (maximum length 2 double-spaced pages), both of which usually focus on only one book, we also publish essay-reviews. An essay-review is almost always a discussion of more than one book, and it should develop a strong thesis that not only links the books under consideration but also reaches out to comment on literature or culture beyond the texts at hand. Typical essay-reviews run 2–4 double-spaced pages per book reviewed.
