About

The Manchester Review is published by The University of Manchester’s Centre for New Writing, which was founded in September 2007. The Centre's teaching staff includes novelists Jeanette Winterson, M.J. Hyland, Geoff Ryman and Ian McGuire and poets John McAuliffe and Vona Groarke, and it hosts a range of creative writing and contemporary literature programmes and the major event series Literature Live. Edited by the Centre's co-director Dr Ian McGuire, the Review will nurture and promote the best emerging talent as well as featuring new work by leading writers and artists. It will depart from the medium’s conventions by existing only online, with new issues appearing each spring and autumn. These will often include broadcasts of new music, public debates and video pieces, as well as visual art, fiction and poetry.

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.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
