The Paris Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

General Submission Guidelines

The Paris Review accepts unsolicited submissions of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry for the print quarterly during the months of March and September. For separate guidelines for submitting pitches and essays for our online publication, The Daily, visit this page on our site. 

All submissions must be in English and previously unpublished. Translations are acceptable and should be accompanied by a copy of the original text. Simultaneous submissions are also acceptable as long as we are notified immediately if the manuscript is accepted for publication elsewhere.

We suggest to all who submit that they read the most recent issues of The Paris Review to acquaint themselves with material the magazine has published. Subscriptions are available here.

Please submit no more than one short story, one nonfiction piece, or six poems at a time and please do not submit more than twice in a calendar year. While the magazine welcomes unsolicited submissions, it cannot accept responsibility for their loss or engage in related correspondence.

***Owing to the overwhelming number of submissions we have received, fiction and nonfiction submissions through Submittable are now paused. Submissions by mail remain open. Thank you for your understanding. Poetry submissions are not affected by this change.***
