About

Since 2008, PRISM REVIEW has published contemporary poetry and fiction from both national and international authors, choosing the best dozen or so pieces from the thousand-plus submissions we read each year. We also sponsor prizes in fiction and poetry judged by highly respected contemporary writers. Unlike many journals, our staff (save for a faculty advisor/editor) is entirely made up of undergraduate creative writing students here at the University of La Verne — please be impressed by their hard work and excellent taste in literature. Alongside literary works, PRISM REVIEW also publishes interviews and reviews with emerging contemporary authors.

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for all submissions.

Fiction Temp Closed

Our taste is deeply varied: in fiction, we're moved by the succinct prose of Ernest Hemingway and the fresh wackiness of Aimee Bender, by the ethereality of Italo Calvino and the ruminations of Alice Munro.

Poetry Temp Closed

We enjoy poetry that is witty and poetry that is moving, especially poetry that's both; we're suspicious of end-rhyme and formal structures but hey, we're cool, we'll hang with them a little. Mark Strand, Brenda Hillman, and Mary Jo Bang are among the many poets we adore.

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.
