About

The Maine Review features fiction, nonfiction, and poetry by both established and emerging writers. We look for work that cuts across artificial boundaries, that challenges expectations and demands thoughtful attention. While we are not promoting a single aesthetic, we look for work that asks its readers to imagine in new ways and that rewards their efforts. We are committed to including work by Maine writers in each issue, alongside great writing from across the country and around the world.

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for some submissions. They charge fees for some submission periods.
Important: The submission fee can be waived in cases of economic hardship.

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.
