About

Northwest Review was first published by the University of Oregon in 1957. The inaugural issue sold for fifty cents and included native Oregonian Ken Kesey’s first publication, a short story called “The First Sunday in September.” In its sixty-three year history, Northwest Review has published multiple winners of the Pulitzer-Prize, the National Book Award, the Booker Prize, and the National Book Critics Circle Award.

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.
