Basic info:


Cover letter can be optional and just tell us what's on your mind.


Submit a brief bio consisting of a 2-3 sentence description of past published work, written in the 3rd person, and begin with your name. If you are selected for publication we will use this in our contributors' section. This helps us later, but we only judge you on the merit of your submitted work. We especially like discovering previously unpublished writers.

You can help us grow by ordering a back issue, a subscription, or donating to our fundraising campaign. Plus, by ordering and reading a copy you'll get a better sense for our aesthetic style and what we may be looking for in submissions.

NOTE: Whitefish Review prides itself on being accessible to the entire community of writers, artists and readers that we serve. Though our nonprofit organization has implemented a $3 administrative fee for writing and poetry submissions (there is no fee for art and photography submissions, as well as no charge for high school and below) to help offset web site and submission manager expenses, we still aspire to be as inclusive as possible. If the $3 administrative fee prohibits you from submitting your work, please email editor@whitefishreview.org with a brief explanation of your circumstance and we'll see what we can do to work together.
