There are presently no open calls for submissions.
Harvard Review publishes short fiction, poetry, essays, drama, and book reviews. Writers at all stages of their careers are invited to apply, however, we can only publish a very small fraction of the material we receive.
We recommend that you familiarize yourself with Harvard Review before submitting your work. You can find information about the current issue as well as subscriptions online at harvardreview.org.
A Note on Response Time: While we try to respond to submissions within 6 months, it can occasionally take longer for a manuscript to be read. We ask for your patience as we do make every effort to read all the submissions we receive. Unfortunately we are unable to respond to status inquiries.
