2/15/22: We are looking for readers in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Please see Submittable!


Submission Guidelines
Green Briar Review is currently reading for its Spring 2022 issue.

Green Briar Review accepts poetry, nonfiction, fiction, 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. We are also accepting applications for readers in all genres

Our response time can run from a few weeks to a few months. Feel free to query (info@greenbriarreview.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.

Nonfiction
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.

Fiction
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.

Photography/Art
We're interested in any/all photography or art.  Send it our way.

Poetry
Submit one to four poems in a single document, one poem per page, using standard 12 point font (no images, please). We are open to many styles and aesthetics, but are especially drawn to poems that don't shy away from technical virtuosity, poems that embrace the integrity of the line. Please submit just once per reading period. In your cover letter, list the poem titles, along with a brief bio.
