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Original, unpublished work may be submitted from July 1 through October 1 via Submittable (no fee).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! .

Current Issue: Volume 1, Issue 11 (2021)
Issue 11, our first fully online issue of The Lindenwood Review, arrives in the middle of a pandemic, at a time when hope is needed to balance the despair, when we want literature to do its magic—to both lift us away from the challenges in our lives and to help us feel grounded and make sense of the spinning world around us. We hope TLR11 will give a bit of that balance to you, our readers, as you allow yourselves some time to fall into the worlds of these wonderful stories, prose poems, and essays.
