The West Review is an online quarterly journal that publishes quality poetry, flash fiction, interviews, reviews, and art. They are devoted to nurturing, publishing, and celebrating the best in contemporary writing, and aim to show off new and emerging talent alongside established artists.
The West Review accepts submissions year-round. Although members of the team have their likes and dislikes, they appreciate all writing that moves them and accept all different styles. Send both the narrative and the lyrical; the frenetic and the contemplative; the “new” and the “traditional.”
The West Review commits itself to having a majority of their journal’s contributors come from groups that are underrepresented in today’s literary world. That is, much of the work they publish comes from writers and artists who are LGBTQIA+, of color, immigrant, disabled, working class, youth, elder, and/or other communities that have historically been overlooked or marginalized by the literary elites.
