The Windsor Review: International Journal of Life, Literature, and Art is published twice a year by the University of Windsor Faculty of Arts. The journal features poetry, short fiction, and art of a high calibre. All creative submissions should be sent to the appropriate editor at the address below. Please specify the relevant editor on the envelope.
Poetry: Susan Holbrook, PhD
Poetry submissions should be typed, single-spaced, with a maximum of six poems.
Short Fiction, Drama, and Creative Non-Fiction: Alistair MacLeod, PhD
Fiction submissions should be typed, double-spaced, and under 5,000 words.
Artwork: Alex McKay
Artwork may be submitted as a slide, photograph, or on an electronic CD. Work is not to be larger than 8×10. There is a limit of ten items per submission.
Please submit only one copy, with a statement that the material is NOT a multiple or simultaneous submission. There are no style or content restrictions; the only guidelines are quality writing and good taste.
We accept mail submissions with a SASE and e-mail submissions with the work as an attachment (.doc, .docx, and .rtf format). Please, restrict your submissions to one per reading period (four months). Our reading periods are September through December and January through April. Work submitted outside of these times will not be read. If you would like your work returned, please include a SASE large enough to return your package. We reserve the right to overlook submissions that do not follow these simple guidelines.
At this time, the Review does not accept reviews or novel excerpts. We do occasionally publish interviews with poets and authors. Please send us a query via e-mail if you are interested in conducting/submitting an interview. Critical articles are not generally a property of our magazine, but we do use them in theme issues; check Upcoming for upcoming themes.
Include a short biography (3 – 5 lines) with your submission. Material accepted will receive acknowledgment in the form of a letter of acceptance. Contributors will be asked to forward a digital copy of their work. Contributors will receive a small remuneration and a free subscription (beginning with the issue in which their work appears).
