Nashville Review

Nashville Review seeks to publish the best work we can get our hands on, period. From expansive to minimalist, narrative to lyric, epiphanic to subtle: if it’s a moving work of art, we want it. We hope to provide a venue for both distinguished and emerging artists. Most importantly, thank you for giving us a chance to read your work. We appreciate it.


We consider submissions in Fiction, Poetry, Nonfiction, and Translation three times a year—January, May and September—and typically respond within 4-5 months. We welcome submissions in Art and Comics year-round. Currently, we are not accepting unsolicited reviews or interviews.

Deadline: June 1, 2022


There is no fee to submit and we are proud to pay our contributors: $25 per poem and $100 for prose and art pieces.

Please do not include any personal or contact information on your manuscript. Prose pieces must be double-spaced and paginated. If your poems use white space in a nontraditional way, we recommend submitting in .pdf format. Include a brief cover letter with the title(s) of your piece(s) and a short bio.

All submissions must be previously unpublished.

We encourage simultaneous submissions: if your work is accepted elsewhere, wonderful! Just leave a note via Submittable as soon as possible so we know the piece has been taken. Please submit only once per genre, per reading period, and note that we cap the number of submissions to be considered at 750 per section to ensure a reasonable response time. If we reach our submission cap before the end of the month-long reading period, submissions will close early.

Current and former (within 5 years) students and employees of Vanderbilt University are ineligible to submit.

Please visit our online submissions manager to send us your work. Submissions received via email will not be read.


We consider short stories and novel excerpts up to 8,000 words, or three flash fiction pieces (1,000 words each) in one document.


We welcome submissions of 1-3 poems (10 pages total) in one document.


We’re looking for creative nonfiction across the spectrum: memoir excerpts, essays, imaginative meditations. Send up to 8,000 words.


The Nashville Review is proud to include Translation as a new submission category from NR 24 onwards! In this category, we are looking for fresh contemporary writing that is currently unavailable to English-language readers—pieces that have been published in their original language, but are previously unpublished in English.

Please send prose pieces up to 8,000 words or a maximum of two poems from the same author. You must have permission from the rights holder to translate before you submit. More detailed submissions instructions can be found via our online submissions manager.


We’re seeking anything from one-page comics to excerpts from graphic novels. Please note we do not publish single-frame cartoons in the style of The New Yorker.


We will consider 1-2 Featured Artists per issue. Each contributing artist will be paid $100. We generally showcase up to 6-14 pieces per artist, depending on how many artists are to be featured in a given issue. We prefer submissions in landscape/horizontal orientation. Once selections have been made, a number of pieces will be cropped to dimensions of 1492×682 to be used as banners for the Section pages on our website (check out our current issue for examples); original dimensions for pieces showcased on the actual Featured Art page can be flexible.

Please send us a cover letter including a short bio and brief artist’s statement, along with a selection of 12-18 pieces (original dimensions only) as attachments to the Editors at thenashvillereview@gmail.com (Editor-in-Chief) and jess.e.silfa@vanderbilt.edu and lily.a.someson@vanderbilt.edu (Visual Arts & Comics Editors). Please be sure to include “NR Art Submission” in the subject line of your email
