Gordon Square Review seeks short stories, essays and prose

web site

Deadline: April 1, 2020  

Thank you for submitting your work to Gordon Square Review, a Literary Cleveland publication!

We consider short stories, personal essays, and hybrid prose works. While we don’t shy away from blurred genre lines, please note that our focus and aesthetic is literary. We are unable to consider reviews, interviews, academic work, dramatic scripts, or writing for children.

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). We appreciate standard manuscript formatting: double spaced, one-inch margins, and a serif font like Times New Roman.

While we welcome and encourage submissions from all writers regardless of geography, please tell us if you are a Northeast Ohio writer -- If you currently live in Northeast Ohio (including the Cleveland, Akron/Canton, Youngstown, Kent, or Lorain/Elyria/Oberlin areas) or if you have a strong tie to Northeast Ohio as a past resident, student, etc. If you answer "yes," we ask that you elaborate below.
