Submission Guidelines

General Information:

First, please read The Citron Review. Our content is totally free so there’s little excuse not to be familiar with our little publication BEFORE you submit. If you can’t imagine your words fitting among our pages, there is little reason to think we will either.

Email and snail mail submissions are no longer accepted. We now use Submittable to manage all submissions to The Citron Review. We apologize if this presents an inconvenience, but it’s the only way we can responsibly manage the hundreds of submissions we receive every quarter. All currently open submission categories are detailed on the Submittable page.

All manuscripts submitted to The Citron Review must be original and previously unpublished. You can expect a response in about a month. If you have not heard from us in six weeks, please feel free to contact us for an update.

Publication Rights:

We publish ONLY unpublished work. If we select your work for publication, you grant us First Internet Publishing Rights, as well as Exclusive Rights for the first three months your work appears with The Citron Review. This includes Nonexclusive Archival Rights as your work will appear indefinitely in The Citron Review’s archives. At the time of publication, all other rights revert to you. If you republish the work elsewhere, we ask that you please credit The Citron Review as first publisher.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but it is expected that you will notify us if this is the case. Additionally, you must notify us immediately and withdraw your submission if your work is published elsewhere.

Currently, we are unable to pay for publication
