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 March and September and throughout the year through the post (see below for the separate submission guidelines for our online publication, The Daily).

All submissions must be in English and previously unpublished.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. While the magazine welcomes unsolicited submissions, it cannot accept responsibility for their loss or engage in related correspondence.

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.

Due to volume of submissions, please note that editorial responses may take up to six months.

For submissions by post, please send to the following address, and include a self-addressed stamped envelope:

[Fiction, Nonfiction, or Poetry] Editor
The Paris Review
544 West 27th Street
Floor 3
New York, NY 10001

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All submissions must be in English and previously unpublished.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.

Please send pitches and submissions to [email protected]

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.
