There is no announced theme for issue #22 (published spring 2018). We want to see where your art is taking you.

Submissions in fiction, essay, and poetry closed on January 1. We are still accepting submissions in photography and art through February 15. Show us your best and most surprising work. (Grace period extended to midnight Sunday, Feb 19.)

Whitefish Review features the literature, art, and photography of mountain culture. We believe that the arts are vital for a healthy society and can help create a more sustainable future for wild places. While publishing famous national voices, our editors also discover emerging artists and authors.

New Montana Voices

An anthology of poems, fiction, essays, and photos for Montana High School students (grades 9 – 12) in public, private, home school, and non-traditional settings.

New Montana Voices is a contest and publishing venture directed toward high school age writers and artists living in Montana. We are offering contest prizes for the top three entries in the following 3 categories: Poetry, Prose & Essay, and Photography. First place in each category is $300; second place is $150; third place is $50. In addition to that, New Montana Voices will compile the best of the entries at the end of the school year and publish the work in full-featured, paperback edition -- every author/photographer featured in the year-end magazine will be provided a free copy. Entrants may submit in multiple categories.

Entries will also be considered for publication in Whitefish Review. Inclusion in Whitefish Review would be in addition to inclusion in New Montana Voices.

The following guidelines for submission should be followed:

Poetry: No more than 6 poems per entrant, each a maximum length of 50 lines, in .docx, .doc, .rtf, or plain .txt format, using 12-pt Times New Roman font (except in .txt formatted submissions.)
