We welcome your previously unpublished stories, essays, poetry, graphic art, and genres that have no name. (We consider self-published work and work posted on internet venues, personal websites and social media as previously published.)

  • Only one submission per reading period, please! Multiple submissions (including submissions to multiple genres) will be automatically disqualified.
  • We will consider simultaneous submissions but ask that you retract your work immediately if it is accepted for publication elsewhere.
  • If your work appears in our current or previous issue, we kindly ask that you refrain from submitting to our upcoming issue.
  • Please include a short bio (50 -100 words) with your submission.
  • We welcome unpublished translations of original work, provided the translator has obtained permission from the author. Please include a copy of the original work.
  • We welcome work that challenges conventions of form, style, and content.
  • See individual submission categories for specific guidelines. 

* The Ilanot Review is a volunteer operation. Submission fees go towards our web hosting fees and Submittable service fees.
