    The Portland Review Literary Journal has been publishing superb short prose, poetry and art since 1956. Contributors range from the celebrated to the unknown. Editors at The Review comb through thousands of submissions annually to produce a journal of exceptional quality. Our mission to promote new authors while maintaining strict editorial standards allows us to bring our readers fresh and innovative works from Oregon and around the world with every issue. The Review is published three times a year by the Portland State University Student Publications Board.
  • Submissions policy
    Prose Submissions: Prose submissions should be no longer than 25 pages or 6,250 words. We will only consider one prose submission from you at a time. We only accept typed and double-spaced prose submissions. Poetry Submissions: We will consider submissions of one to ten poems contained within a single document. We are currently very, very weary of poetry about birds or involving bird imagery, but if you think you can make it work, we encourage you to show us how wrong we are. (See website for details)
