The Notre Dame Review (est. 1995) has opened a three month reading period to curate poetry and stories for the 2017 academic year.
The literary journal, along with its website, publish present-day American and worldwide poetry, fiction, literary commentary, and art. Its purpose is to furnish a breathtaking view of contemporary art and humanities.
The editors are interested in work that tackles major issues that go unreported in mainstream media and work that emphasizes an important message through an artistic expression.
Along with featuring renowned authors, the journal exposes readers to underrepresented authors engaged in creative and relevant work.
Writers and poets can read parts of the current issue online to get a feel for what each section editor wants, what they publish, and the length of pieces.
Payment: authors are paid a small stipend.
The journal now accepts submissions via Submittable.
Reading period closes November 30, 2017. Read writer’s guidelines at the Journal’s Submittable page.
