Rathalla Review strives to publish the finest fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and art. Our aim is to find work that is vulnerable and honest, universal yet personal, and sharply written. Our staff, comprised of MFA in Creative Writing and MA in Publishing candidates, merges the creative arts and the business of publishing into a shared voice and vision.
We accept nonfiction essays and fiction stories up to 4,500 words, as well as flash nonfiction and fiction (up to 1,000 words). We accept poems that are no more than 3 pages.
Our reading period is from Aug 15th through Oct 1st, and January 1st through March 15th. There is no reading fee. Check out the website (http://rathallareview.org/submit/) for more detailed submissions guidelines.
Please include a 100-word maximum author biography to be published alongside your work in the event of publication.
Please attach images as a .JPEG, .PNG or .PDF file with the size of 300 dpi. Submissions should be formatted to 8.5″ x 11″ with a quarter inch bleed. Please submit 3-4 pieces indicative of your body of work for us to consider. We don’t have a theme. Please include a short bio of 4-5 sentences as well, and an artist's statement if you have one. If you have an online portfolio, please include the link.
