Taking Submissions: Gordon Square Review #4

March 15, 2019

Deadline: March 15th, 2019
Payment: $25 per accepted prose piece and $10 per accepted poem


Gordon Square Review will accept submissions for its fourth issue from January 15 through March 15, 2019.
​Writers will receive $25 per accepted prose piece and $10 per accepted poem. Northeast Ohio writers, check out our Contest page to learn about the Spring 2019 Poetry Contest.


  • All submitted work must be previously unpublished in any print or online venues, including personal blogs. We require non-exclusive world English rights, and all rights revert to the author on publication.
  • Simultaneous submissions are welcome and encouraged, but we ask that you withdraw your work immediately if it is accepted at another journal.
  • Please only submit one piece at a time and wait for our response before sending additional work. While our response times may vary, we will respond to all submissions for Issue 4 by mid-May.
  • We encourage submissions from women, writers of color, writers with disability, LGBTQ writers, and previously unpublished writers.
  • We are currently unable to consider reviews, interviews, academic work, dramatic scripts, or writing for children.
  • PLEASE NOTE: We are unable to accept print or email submissions. Please contact us, however, if this presents accessibility issues.
  • To learn more about our preferred aesthetic, please read our previous issues and see our editors’ notes.


We consider short stories, personal essays, and hybrid prose works. Please submit one piece of prose up to 5,000 words OR up to three flash pieces of 1,000 words or fewer (attached in a single document). While we don’t shy away from blurred genre lines, please note that our focus and aesthetic is literary. Specify whether your work is fiction or nonfiction and use standard manuscript formatting: double space the document, use one-inch margins, and use a serif font, preferably Times New Roman.


Please limit your submission to three poems attached in a single document. If one of your submitted poems is accepted elsewhere, please use your Submittable account to add a note to your submission indicating which title(s) should be removed from our consideration.
