Submissions

Reckon Review accepts prose (fiction and non-fiction) of any length on a rolling basis. No poetry please. We also publish book reviews.

This is where we tell you what our aesthetic is, but we don’t like rules, and guidelines cramp creativity. Send us honest and vulnerable, something you’re proud of, something that will keep us up at night. Meagan’s taste skews gritty and rural, but she loves surprises.

To Submit Prose:

  • email: editor@reckonreview.com
  • include 1 piece only, attached in .docx, .rtf, or pasted in the body of your email
  • NO PDFs
  • include a brief third person bio in your cover letter

To Have Your Book Considered for Review, or to Submit or Pitch a Book Review:

  • email: reviews@reckonreview.com
  • review submissions should be 1500 words or fewer, attached in .docx, .rtf, or pasted in the body of your email
  • books that you are requesting reviews for should fit the Reckon aesthetic and appeal to Reckon readers. Read the journal if you’re not sure. Our reviewers only consider paper books, you or your publisher must be willing to send a physical copy.
  • include a brief third person bio in your email
