Submissions are now open from the 2019 issue of The Allegheny Review! The deadline to submit for the upcoming issue is October 15th, 2018. Please keep in mind that we only accept digital submissions via our online Wufoo form! (see link below). Submissions through any other medium will not be considered.
The Allegheny Review only accepts submissions from currently enrolled undergraduate students.
A $5 entry fee covers a one-year subscription and eligibility for our prose and poetry awards. Winners of the award receive a $250 prize and publication in our journal. If you are submitting work from more than one genre, please send each submission separately with a separate entry fee.
Please note: pieces submitted as regular submissions without the entry fee are eligible for publication, but they will not be considered for our annual awards.
NOTE: You do NOT need to submit to both. You will automatically be considered for our publication when you submit to the annual awards.
We only accept one prose or poetry submission per person per submission period.
We do accept simultaneous submissions. If your submission is accepted elsewhere, please let us know right away.
Because our magazine is staffed by undergrads, it may take a while to get to your submission, especially if it is submitted during the spring or summer. Please be patient with us.
Submissions must be in either PDF or Word format.
Fiction – not to exceed 20 pages, double-spaced
Poetry – up to 5 poems
Creative nonfiction – not to exceed 20 pages, double-spaced
Please note that we only accept creative nonfiction submissions. Reports and analytical essays will not be published.
