The Dandelion Review 5

About

The Dandelion Review earns its name from the hardy flower that so often colors Midwest grasses, and that so often burrows up through cracks in the cement. We love these beauties–we’re maybe obsessed. The Dandelion Review is a literary magazine publishing poetry and creative nonfiction. We seek to publish women writers and gender nonconforming writers. We are interested in the stories you have to tell–the quiet morning with your lover, the spilled milk on the floor, the trauma, the survival, the vagina, the muddy river near your house. We also seek the stories that you need to tell. The ones you must write, and the ones you think no one wants to hear. We want to hear them. We really do. Tell us with leaping language and tight line breaks, with images we’ve never known, with a shape-shifting essay.

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.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
