Submissions are now open for Issue 14 until midnight, 31st March 2015. See below for guidelines.
The Manchester Review publishes two issues per year in Spring and Autumn. During our submission period we welcome unpublished fiction, poetry and essays from both established and new writers. Please make no more than one submission per issue. If you do not hear back from us in time for the upcoming issue, your work will be considered for the next one. Simultaneous submissions are permitted.
Please send only one piece of fiction or non-fiction. Very rarely do we publish works longer than 6,000 words.
Please send no more than 3 poems.
Please email us a link to your online portfolio. Unfortunately, we cannot accept music, visual art, or video submissions by post or as email attachments.
We only accept Word documents or PDF files. In the subject line, please include your name and the category (Fiction/Non-Fiction/Poetry/Art) and make sure that identifying details are also on your submission.
We strongly encourage online submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alternatively, postal submissions should be sent to:
Editor, The Manchester Review
Centre for New Writing
Second floor, Mansfield Cooper Building
The University of Manchester
Due to the volume of submissions, we may not always respond in a timely manner. Please contact us about your submission should you not hear from us within three months.
