Accepting Submissions: The Island Review
Seeking submissions now
What do we want?
The editors of The Island Review are seeking submissions of poetry, short fiction, non-fiction, photography and visual art from islanders everywhere, as well as from those whose work is influenced by islands or which explores ideas of islandness.
We’re looking for work that stands out from the crowd: work that is original, daring, witty, wise, radical, intelligent, illuminating or just plain excellent. If you think you fit into any (or all) of those categories, we want to hear from you.
Who can contribute?
Anyone who lives on an island; anyone whose work is about islands, set on an island or inspired by islands; anyone who doesn’t fit quite comfortably into one of these categories but who believes, nevertheless, that their work may be just right for The Island Review.
Please read our ‘coming soon’ page to find out what we mean by the word ‘island’. But bear in mind, also, that we’re always willing to be persuaded.
So, while Australia may be a continental landmass rather than an island proper, if your work seeks somehow to highlight the islandness of that country, we’d probably want to take a look.
On the other hand, the island of Manhattan is probably less likely to interest us than, say, Ellis Island. But that doesn’t mean we won’t be interested.
If you think we should be interested, tell us why. And if you’re not quite sure, just ask.
In addition . . .
The Island Review is preparing to launch in early 2013. If you have any ideas and suggestions for the website – who, what or where would you like to see featured, for instance – we’d very much like to know.
And if you would like to offer us help or assistance of any kind . . . please do.
