THE RED WHEELBARROW REVIEW.

                                      The journal will launch in Summer 2020.

                                                  Submissions NOW OPEN

 Thank you for considering The Red Wheelbarrow Review as a home for your art. RWR 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 transcendence located in the real and how it constitutes human experience. 

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. 

 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 Poetry, Creative Nonfiction and Fiction works should be in English unless prior permission has been granted. 

 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 Editors. Our response time is generally 4-6 weeks but may vary. 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 2 months you may email rwreditor@gmail.com.

Authors retain all rights but agree to credit The Red Wheelbarrow Review if work is published elsewhere after first appearing here.
