About

The Sonder Review is a publication of short fiction, creative nonfiction and visual art. Our magazine lives both online and in print and is based in Upstate, New York. We believe in language. Words raw and shuddering and unabashed. Prose which is spare and piercing, delicately and deliberately crafted. We believe in storytelling that is innovative and daring, precise and oddly angled. Writing which shows us the bizarre but also, always, the resounding throb of humanity. We want fresh voices; words which must be heard. We believe incredibly strongly in our authors and take immense pride in bringing their vision to fruition. We also do our best to promote their voices and nominate their work for applicable awards and prizes.

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for some submissions. They charge fees for "tip jar" submissions.

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.
