The Yale Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

All submissions must be in English and previously unpublished in print or online (including on private websites/blogs). We consider translations, which can be submitted to the relevant genre form on Submittable. We are happy to consider simultaneous submissions, but ask that we be notified promptly if a piece is accepted for publication elsewhere.

For submissions procedures and guidelines concerning the kinds of writing we’re interested in, please see the “Submissions” section of our website.

The Yale Review is a small, editorially independent organization that relies primarily on its own funds to operate. To defray the costs of hosting and running Submittable, we need to charge $3 per submission. Submitters may claim the cost against a new subscription to the journal. However, we feel that financial hardship should not be an impediment to submission, and we offer a limited number of fee-free submissions for qualified applicants. If for any reason the fee is an impediment, please email with the subject head "Fee Waiver" for instructions on how to enter a submission.

We pay writers for the pieces we publish. Payment for poetry ranges from $50 to $75; payment for fiction and nonfiction ranges from $100 to $150 for online-only publication. Payment for prose pieces in the print journal vary, depending on length. Authors receive one copy of the issue in which their work appears. Authors retain copyright and will receive a contract upon acceptance.
