The Shanghai Literary Review is an English language magazine of fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and art, run by an editorial team between New York & Shanghai.
The deadline for our winter 2017 issue is September 3, 2017.
Submissions may be made via our online submission manager.
There is no fee for submitting work to TSLR.
We are interested in art and criticism about urbanism, globalism, identity, and transnationalism, though by no means should submissions be limited to those topics. We'll publish a good story about cats in Africa if it floors us. Selected works will be published online and/or in print and be automatically entered into our annual end-of-year contest where cash prizes will be awarded in each genre.
Fiction - less than 5,000 words
Poetry - 2 poems submission limit per person
Non-Fiction & Essay - less than 5,000 words
Flash Fiction or Nonfiction - less than 500 words
Visual Art - photography, video, photo essay, collage, painting, sketch, etc.
Translation - translation into English of any poetry, essay or short fiction from Asia, or vice versa, along with the original text
Book Review - pitch book review ideas to us, on fiction or nonfiction from or about Asia
Thank you for your consideration.
