Gordon Square Review

Gordon Square Review, a publication of Literary Cleveland, holds two open readings periods each year. The journal will reopen for general submissions from writers of all geographic locations on January 15, 2022 and will remain open through April 1, 2022. Writers accepted for publication receive $25 per prose piece and $10 per poem.

Gordon Square Review Submission Guidelines

All submitted work must be previously unpublished in any print or online venues, including personal blogs.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. 

We encourage submissions from women, writers of color, writers with disability, LGBTQ writers, and previously unpublished writers.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 the writing we've accepted in the past, 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. 

Read this story, this story, and this essay for a taste of the prose we've loved and accepted. Use the link below to access it.


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. 

Read this poem, this poem, and others from the issues we've published for a taste of the poetry we've loved and accepted.  Use the link below to access it.


All general submissions from writers in any geographical location are eligible for our competitive editorial mentorships.

 No separate application process is required, and writers need not take any additional steps to be considered for a mentorship.

 Each Gordon Square Review editor will independently choose one piece of writing received during the open submission period and work with that writer to revise the piece for publication.

 Selected writers will be asked to contribute a micro essay about the process. 

Writers should submit their best, most polished work to Gordon Square Review to improve their chances of being selected for publication or an editorial mentorship
