THE YALE REVIEW ACCEPTS SUBMISSIONS ONLINE via Submittable. Submissions are currently closed. Our next submission period will open from September 15, 2022 to October 6, 2022. We do not accept mailed submissions, 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of poetry, fiction, essays, review essays, and translations; all submissions must be in English and previously unpublished in print or online.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 respond to all submissions by May 31, 2023. 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 $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.
