Doubleback Review 21

A project of Sundress Publications (see other related projects)

About

Doubleback Review is a grateful child of Sundress Publications and affectionate sibling of Doubleback Books. We publish pieces that were previously published at journals that, sadly, became defunct. In a churn and burn culture, to revisit and reflect is a luxury. We here at Doubleback Review want to hit the pause button on art that may slip from the public’s eye (and therefore lose its potential for connection). Grab a lemonade, head to the porch swing, and double back to review some work of days gone by — what might have been missed the first time around?

Important: Reprints only; they exclusively take previously-published work from markets that no longer exist.

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.
