The Provo Canyon Review is now seeking short fiction and personal essay manuscripts of up to 5,000 words. We also accept shorter poems (limit three per submission). We are drawn to work that is deeply moving without being overly sentimental; tender, in the sense of a mixture of grace and vulnerability and compassion; and displays a great deal of focused attention to the English language and how it is used.
From the first sentence, the work should raise compelling questions in the readers’ minds, with complexly motivated drama balanced with introspection. We are not looking for gratuitous sex or violence in the work.
Simultaneous submissions are welcome. If you have the good fortune to find placement in another magazine, just let us know.
