Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
The Sextant’s mission is to bring together in print writers from the Olympic Peninsula, Pacific Northwest regions, across the country and the world. We are measuring distance and nearness, calculating our relationship with incalculable things, navigating by words as though they are stars. In a world full of beauty and cruelty, unity and division, literature is a powerful place to examine how we come together and diverge. On our pages we print pieces that are sometimes rough, sometimes polished, pieces by prolific writers, writers who collect gold stars, never-before-published writers, writers with words seeping through their skin because they can’t contain their voices, writers who are using words to navigate to something, or somewhere, or as a raft in this wide strange sea.

Submissions Policy
We accept unsolicited submissions from anyone, but will not consider anything that is violent or hateful towards groups or individuals. We publish poetry, prose, and translation. Here is the submission policy from our website: "The Sextant Review accepts unsolicited submissions year round, and reads on a rolling basis. We are looking for high quality poetry, prose, and translation of any style or genre. Send us writing that surprises and inspires. We aren’t interested in pieces that express hatred or violence towards any group of people. We often choose a theme after reading and beginning the submission selection process, so we never know exactly what we're looking for until a piece of work strikes us. Simultaneous submissions are absolutely fine. "
