  • Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
    House Mountain Review is an online literary journal that publishes innovative, aesthetically-diverse poetry and visual art. HMR welcomes works that explore various forms of difference, broadly defined, and that interrogate aesthetic conventions. We particularly encourage submissions by writers and artists from underrepresented perspectives and backgrounds. House Mountain Review is named in homage to House Mountain in Rockbridge County, Virginia. Together its two peaks, Big and Little House Mountains, form a peerless landmark rising above the surrounding blue hills. In the words of Wallace Stevens, HMR is a place for poets to go their “own way,” but also to find their “unique and solitary” mountain homes. Like Stevens, we believe in the poem’s power to preserve, transform, and sustain new realities, and like its namesake, HMR aspires to be an outlook—an enduring reference point in the fields of innovative poetry and visual art.

  • Submissions policy
    House Mountain Review welcomes unsolicited submissions of innovative, aesthetically-diverse poetry and visual art during two open reading periods: 1 October - 15 December for Spring, and 1 May - 15 July for Fall. Submissions received outside of these dates may be considered for the next open reading period. Simultaneous submissions are encouraged, provided that authors notify HMR immediately when a piece has been accepted elsewhere. House Mountain Review obtains First North American Serial Rights to publish writing. Upon publication, all rights revert back to the author. As a courtesy, we ask that you acknowledge House Mountain Review as the place of first publication for any subsequent publications of the work. A reading fee of $3 directly supports the production costs for the journal. Multiple submissions are welcome, but each submission must be accompanied by its own reading fee.
