THE YALE REVIEW ACCEPTS SUBMISSIONS ONLINE via Submittable. Our next open submission period will begin in September and run through October 2021. Subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to learn when we are accepting submissions. (We do not accept mailed submissions at this time, and we will not be able to read work that is sent by mail to our offices.)


The Yale Review accepts submissions of poetry, fiction, essays, review essays, and translations; all submissions must be in English and previously unpublished in print or online. While we accept simultaneous submissions, we ask that submitters notify us promptly if a piece is accepted for publication elsewhere. Submitters should provide a cover letter, which may include their publication history and a bio. We will try to respond to all submissions within seven months. Accepted pieces undergo our standard editorial process, in which we work closely with the author. Web pieces typically appear within six months of acceptance and print pieces within 18 months of acceptance. We pay writers $75 for poems in print; $50 for the Poem of the Week online; $150 for online essays and fiction. Payment for prose pieces in the print journal vary, depending on length.
