The Lindenwood Review: a journal of literary prose

The Lindenwood Review literary journal publishes fiction (short fiction and flash fiction), creative nonfiction (personal essays, lyric essays, and flash nonfiction), and prose poems (block format). The journal is published annually, and students in the university's MFA in Writing program serve as editorial assistants as part of their MFA coursework.

Original, unpublished work may be submitted from July 1 through October 1 via Submittable (no fee). Submissions are welcome from both emerging and established writers. We are looking for fiction with believable characters and a vivid story; creative nonfiction that is well-crafted and fiercely honest; prose poems with a distinctive atmosphere and interesting use of language; and mostly, work that moves us as readers and inspires us as writers. We look forward to reading your work! .

Visit Submittable to view our submission guidelines.
