Green Briar Review is currently reading for its Winter 2019 issue. We will publish part of the issue online; the full issue will be in print! All contributors will receive a T-shirt with the (new) Green Briar logo, as well as a contributor's copy.
Green Briar Review accepts nonfiction, fiction, and poetry, and photography/art. We are now also accepting cultural essays and reviews. Please submit only one piece of fiction and/or nonfiction at a time, and no more than three poems. Once you've heard back, feel free to submit again. We use Submittable.
Our response time can run from a few weeks to a few months. Feel free to query (email@example.com) after four months. We do not accept previously published material. We do accept, however, unsolicited simultaneous submissions, but please inform us immediately if the work has been accepted elsewhere. We may also solicit material on a rare occasion.
Green Briar Review simply asks for first serial rights and to keep your work in our archives online, with the potential—in the future (hopefully not so distant)—to publish your material in print (in which case you would be notified). All rights revert back to the author upon publication: you retain ownership of your work. If you do decide to reprint material we have published, please mention that the work first appeared in Green Briar Review.
We accept essays--lyrical, persuasive, personal, meditative--memoir, literary journalism, travel writing, or just about anything else you can classify as nonfiction. Just keep it under 6000 words. Please use size 12 font, Times New Roman, double spaced. Include, in your brief cover letter, your name, email address, and phone number. Please also include this information on your submission.
We accept short stories (up to 6000 words), but please no genre fiction (sci fi, romance, etc). Otherwise, we will read anything. We also accept short-shorts, microfiction, or whatever else you'd like to call it. Please use size 12 font, Times New Roman, double spaced. Include, in your brief cover letter, your name, email address, and phone number. Please also include this information on your submission.
No more than three poems per submitter at one time. Please send each poem as a separate submission (.doc, .docx, .rtf). Include, in your brief cover letter, your name, email address, and phone number.
We're interested in any/all photography or art. Send it our way.
