General Submission Guidelines: 

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

Fiction: Submit only one story at a time (not exceeding 8000 words) or three pieces of flash fiction. Must be double-spaced, paginated, and include the author’s name and contact information on first page.

Poetry: Submit up to five poems of any length. Must include the author’s name and contact information on each poem. List the poems in the cover letter.

Nonfiction: Submit one work at a time (generally not exceeding 30 pages). We publish personal essays, memoirs, and reviews. Please inquire about reviews as they are published only with editorial pre-approval.

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

Thank you for your interest in The Hopkins Review.
