The Hopkins Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

The Hopkins Review is open for submissions during the month of October.

General Submission Guidelines:

The Hopkins Review is a literary quarterly committed to publishing the best contemporary fiction, poetry, nonfiction, art, and translation. The editors seek to publish emerging writers along with established writers. 

Fiction: Submit only one story at a time (not exceeding 8,000 words) or up to three pieces of flash fiction. We also welcome fiction in translation; however, it is the translator's responsibility to have secured all necessary permissions.

Nonfiction: Submit one work at a time (generally not exceeding 30 pages). We publish personal essays, memoir, and reviews of books, performances, and exhibits. We also publish essays on literature, drama, film, the visual arts, music, and dance. 

Poetry: Submit up to five poems of any length. We also welcome poetry in translation (please include originals as well); however, it is the translator's responsibility to have secured all necessary permissions.

Note that we do accept simultaneous submissions, but we ask that you let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere. 

The Hopkins Review is a print publication that is also archived electronically in perpetuity through Project Muse. The Hopkins Review pays authors for their work at a rate of $1 per line for poetry and $10 per page for prose; a minimum payment of $40 per poetry acceptance and $100 per prose acceptance will go into effect in 2022. You can read a sample issue (13.1, Winter 2020) in its entirety here: https://muse.jhu.edu/issue/41980
