Call for Submissions: Sonora Review

Sonora Review Submissions are Now Open
Submissions link. 

Sonora Review accepts submissions in fiction, poetry, and non-fiction from September 1 through May 1. We only accept unpublished work. Typical response time is three to six months. Please submit only once every six months. Contributors receive two copies of the issue upon publication. 

Let us know if you are simultaneously submitting. If your work is accepted elsewhere, we ask that you withdraw promptly on Submittable. Poets may withdraw individual poems by leaving a message on the submission manager stating the title of the poem(s) to be withdrawn. 

There is a $3 fee for each submission. Sonora Review is run entirely by graduate-student volunteers in the MFA program at the University of Arizona. Your payment goes directly towards production of the journal and technology fees. 

Sonora Review’s editorial board and designers get swapped out every two issues. The effect of this ever-evolving nucleus of staffers is a shelf full of motley journal spines, each boasting its own aesthetic. Our hope is that our contributors are as disparate as our taste-testers. If you didn’t get published in 1996, try again; the grumpy alum are long gone.
We do not accept unsolicited book reviews or interviews. We aim to publish work by both established and emerging writers. 

We encourage you to read Sonora Review before submitting, and to visit our contest page for information about our annual contest.
PROSE (Fiction / Non-Fiction) should be typed, double-spaced, and include page numbers. We are unable to read prose submissions that exceed 10,000 words. Include a cover letter with your name, address, phone number, and email in the header, and a brief biography.
POETRY (Up to 5 poems per submission) should be typed and submitted in one document, with the titles separated by commas in the “Submission Title” field. You may abbreviate the titles if they do not fit. Include a cover letter with your name, address, phone number, and email in the header, and a brief biography.
