Midwest Review is an annual print magazine featuring the Midwest in new work by writers, photographers, and artists who live in, or have lived in, the Midwest.
The Midwest is the region of the north central United States that includes the Great Lakes area and the upper Mississippi River valley (according to the U.S. Census Bureau, the Midwest is comprised of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, and Missouri). Of course, the Midwest is also a state of mind.
They are looking for thoughtful and thought-provoking writing and visual art that examines, interprets, and redefines the wide spectrum of life, past and present, in the Midwest. They accept unsolicited submissions of original creative nonfiction, fiction, poetry, and visual art from June to December.
They welcome work from writers in under-represented communities and from writers in or from the Midwest who are currently or have been incarcerated. There is no submission fee required for these submissions. Contact the editor at email@example.com regarding those submissions.
They do not consider previously published work (work that has appeared previously in any publication, print or online, including self-published work, in print or online). Simultaneous submissions are okay; please notify them immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.
Authors of work accepted for publication by Midwest Review receive a contract granting non-exclusive first serial rights. Copyright reverts to the author upon publication with the request that subsequent re-publication of the work acknowledges first publication in Midwest Review.
We are currently in production of Issue 9 which will be published late spring/early summer. Submissions for Issue 10 open June 1, 2021.
