Red Savina Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

 Submissions currently CLOSED AS WE READ FOR FALL.

  Thank you for considering Red Savina Review as a home for your art. RSR looks forward to reading your original poems, short stories and creative nonfiction. Aesthetic schools are of little concern to us; what matters is that the poem, story or essay presents an authentic investigation into the concept of identity and how it constitutes human experience. 

  Our reading periods are generally year-round.  Send us only your very best work. This is a highly competitive field. Our only criterion is quality. Submitted Creative Nonfiction and Fiction works should be in English unless prior permission has been granted. Poems may be submitted in English, Portuguese or Spanish.

  Prior to submission of any work, please read the Disclaimer, Submission Guidelines, FAQ and Mission Statement for important information regarding this publication. 

  Withdrawals can be accomplished through Submittable. Simply click the "Withdraw" feature.  E-mailed  withdrawals are NOT permitted. We do not refund withdrawals.

  *Final decisions are made by the Founding Editor.Our response time is generally 3 months but varies significantly. You may log-in to your submittable account at any time to check the status of your submission. If you have not heard back from us within 3 months you may email

  *Our policy: anyone 18 years of age and over may submit to the Red Savina Review.

  We like writing that challenges you, the writer: writing that drags you out of your comfort zone, refuses to stroke your sense of self-esteem, writing that DARES you to let it have its say. Send us polished but evocative work. 

Thank you. We look forward to your submission!
