Submission Guidelines

The Paris Review

The Paris Review accepts unsolicited submissions of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry for the print quarterly via Submittable during the months of February and September and throughout the year through the post (see below for the separate submission guidelines for our online publication, The Daily).

Until further notice, please do not mail hard copy submissions to the Paris Review office. We cannot guarantee receipt or processing of material sent during this time.

All submissions must be in English and previously unpublished. Translations are acceptable and should be accompanied by a copy of the original text. Simultaneous submissions are also acceptable as long as we are notified immediately if the manuscript is accepted for publication elsewhere.

We suggest to all who submit that they read the most recent issues of The Paris Review to acquaint themselves with material the magazine has published. Subscriptions are available here.

While we strongly encourage you to submit electronically using Submittable, The Paris Review does accept submissions sent in hard copy through the mail. Fiction manuscripts and essays should be sent to the attention of the fiction editor and poetry manuscripts to the poetry editor at the following address:

The Paris Review
544 West 27th Street
New York, NY 10001

Please submit no more than one short story, one nonfiction piece, or six poems at a time and please do not submit more than twice in a calendar year. For electronic submissions, please follow the instructions on the Submittable form. For hard copy submissions, please be sure to include a phone number and (if possible) email address. Rejected hard copy manuscripts will not be sent a response unless they are accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope. If you wish to have your hard copy manuscript returned, please provide sufficient postage on the SASE, and make an obvious note that our readers should include your manuscript with their reply. Otherwise, manuscripts will be recycled. While the magazine welcomes unsolicited submissions, it cannot accept responsibility for their loss or engage in related correspondence.



The Daily

We publish nonfiction stories on arts and culture. We strongly suggest to all who submit that they read the Daily to acquaint themselves with our editorial voice and sensibility. Pitches are preferred to pieces written on spec; please keep submissions to under two thousand words.

All submissions must be in English and previously unpublished. Simultaneous submissions are also acceptable, but please notify us immediately if the piece is accepted for publication elsewhere.

Because of the volume of submissions, and the timely nature of the blog, we are unable to respond to all inquiries. We will only respond to those that we’re interested in.
