About

At The Yale Review, we believe in the power of perspective. The power of connecting great minds—across disciplines, backgrounds, and generations—around thought-provoking writing. A pre-eminent journal of literature and ideas, The Yale Review has published writers such as Thomas Mann, Virginia Woolf, José Ortega y Gasset, Stanley Cavell, Robert Lowell, John Hersey, Bayard Rustin, Adrienne Rich, James Merrill, and Rita Dove. We’re also a home for students interested in writing and editing at Yale University. Overlooking campus atop a hill in a rambling, cozy three-story house, we mentor students and writers who care about literature, the arts, and the craft of editing.Our student program allows Yale undergraduates and graduate students to apply to be “Yale Review Fellows,” and to receive in-depth training on what it takes to run a magazine, as well as plenty of hands-on experience. At the Review, we aim to engage diverse minds, experiences and points of view in enduring conversations and exceptional writing, to “keep the road open” as Cross once wrote, “for candid statements of different standpoints from writers of exceptional ability.” Because questions endure—it’s the answers that change.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
