Submit!

Tulsa Review seeks bold, unique voices of emerging and established writers anywhere in the world. We accept submissions of poetry, short prose (fiction, creative nonfiction, and one-act plays), and visual artwork year round. However, we only review submissions in March and April for publication in our annual spring issue. (This means that you might be waiting awhile for a response from us depending on what time of year you submit.) Our submission deadline is March 1 annually.

Only Tulsa Community College students enrolled for spring semester may submit to the Student Contest. All other writers and artists must submit to General Submissions.  Student Contest submissions are judged by TCC faculty, and General Submissions are judged by Tulsa Review's student editorial staff. Although we cannot pay general contributors at this time, we love you dearly and will make every effort to care for and promote your work.

Simultaneous submissions are welcome, but please use Submittable to withdraw your submission immediately if it is accepted elsewhere before we respond. (If you've submitted multiple poems in one document and want to withdraw only one or two, just send us a message indicating so.)

By submitting below, you acknowledge that Tulsa Review gets first publication rights to your original creative work if we select it for publication. You retain all copyrights and other publication rights for that work. You also release Tulsa Community College from any claims for libel, slander, invasion of the right of privacy, or any other claim based on the use of this material in the Tulsa Review
