Revolutionary Review accepts submissions year-round but publishes biannually. We currently only publish work online, but in the future we will incorporate in-print.

We publish the finest work of contemporary literary arts. Our only review criterion is the excellence of the work. We also do not have specific themes. We want to see what you can bring us!

Revolutionary Review publishes poetry, short fiction, creative nonfiction, and book reviews. There is NO fee to submit.

What we don't want:

We do not publish work that discriminate any group using any means. Revolutionary Review is an inclusive literary community aimed to support all readers and writers.

Work that do not follow the guidelines will be rejected unread.
