Since its inception in 1957, The Evergreen Review has sought out writers and artists who embrace experimentation and tell stories that aren’t often heard in mainstream spaces. Evergreen now welcomes general submissions of original fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and video art—and we’re especially excited by works which blur the lines between multiple genres and forms. We pay essayists, short story writers, poets and videographers a minimum of $250. We will also consider excerpts from forthcoming books, as long as they haven't been published elsewhere. Read our current issue to get a sense of what we like.

Because we are a volunteer editorial staff, it may take us a few weeks to get back to you.

For poetry: send 5 - 10 of your best unpublished poems to Jee Leong Koh at jeeleong@evergreenreview.com.

Our $5.00 submission fee helps cover contributor payments and general operating expenses. If you are unable to afford it, you may choose not to pay the fee upon submission. This option is meant to support writers facing severe financial hardship, so please only opt to waive the fee if it is absolutely necessary.

For questions about our submission process, contact info@evergreenreview.com.
