APPLE VALLEY REVIEW
The Apple Valley Review is an online literary journal. It is published twice
each year, once in Spring and once in Fall. Each issue features a collection
of beautifully crafted poetry, short fiction, and essays.
We welcome submissions of poetry, short fiction, and essays.
—Submissions are accepted year-round.
—We prefer work that has both mainstream and literary appeal. In other
words, please send us work that is both accessible and finely written.
—Prose submissions may range from 100 to 3000 words. Shorter pieces
stand a better chance of being published, but you may query the editor if you
have an exceptional longer piece.
—Novel excerpts must be self-contained.
—Preference is given to short (under two pages), non-rhyming poetry.
—We do not accept simultaneous submissions.
—All work must be original, previously unpublished, and in English.
Translations are welcome if permission has been granted.
—This is not currently a paying market.
We are very picky here. Please do not send us
—genre fiction (e.g., horror, science fiction, mysteries);
—erotica, work containing explicit language, or anything else you wouldn't
want your grandmother to read;
—work that is scholarly or critical, inspirational, or intended for children; or
—anything that is violent or more than a little depressing.
If we are crying because we are moved, that is good. If we are crying
because we have lost the will to live, that is bad.
Please note that these are purely editorial preferences. Work that is not a
good fit here may be perfect for another market.
Send submissions via e-mail to Leah Browning, Editor.
—Send one prose piece or two to six poems at a time.
—Include the word "fiction," "poetry," or "essay" in your subject line.
—Type or paste your submission in the body of the e-mail message. We
will not open any unsolicited attachments.
—Include a cover letter with your name, address, phone number, e-mail
address, and a short biography (maximum 150 words).
Please expect to wait up to three months for a reply. Occasionally with
e-mail, there are technical difficulties. We cannot be responsible for delay or
loss of submissions. To check on the status of your submission after three
months have passed, please send a message to our editor.
If your work is accepted for publication, we may ask you to send it to us
as a Word attachment. This is more likely with prose than with poetry.
