About Raleigh Review

Raleigh Review is a nonprofit magazine of poetry, short fiction, and art, offering accessible works of experience that are emotionally and intellectually complex. At Raleigh Review we believe that great literature inspires empathy by allowing us to see the world through the eyes of our neighbors, whether across the street or across the globe. Our mission is to foster the creation and availability of accessible yet provocative contemporary literature through our biannual magazine as well as through workshops, readings, and other community events.


Further Guidance on Submissions:
Please note, we do not accept submissions to Raleigh Review  via email or US postal service in most cases. They must go through Submittable. See Submission Guidelines for details. The only exception to this rule is inmates may use the mailing address below to send us one submission per reading period via US Post. Follow the submission guidelines, and please only send the work and your return address in this case.

We encourage all others who are unable to pay the submission convenience fee for personal or for financial reasons to submit to the magazine we helped launch last academic year, Lou Lit Review. At this time LLR does not charge fees because they are affiliated with a college and have both a budget as well as access to spaces to help generate revenue for their magazine. Like Raleigh Review, we designed Lou Lit Review to provide multiple reads on each submitted poem and story to make for a less subjective selection criteria. It is a striking magazine and we hope you will try both Raleigh Review and Lou Lit Review at some point, and stay tuned for the magazine we plan to help launch at Saint Augustine's University over the 2018-2019 academic year.

We welcome your submissions to Raleigh Review though we ask that you adhere to our submission guidelines as well as to the policy in the above paragraphs.
