Non-profit literary magazine Indiana Review is currently accepting unsolicited submissions. Now in its 45th year of publication, Indiana Review has been ranked as one of the Top 100 Literary Magazines in the United States.
Published twice a year, Indiana Review is based at Indiana University Bloomington. It describes its mission as offering the highest quality writing within a wide aesthetic. Indiana Review publishes work by both established and emerging writers, and works by contributors to have been awarded the Pushcart Prize and reprinted in The Pushcart Prize Anthology: Best of the Small Presses, as well as in Best American Short Stories, Best American Poetry, and The O. Henry Prize Stories.
Indiana Review accepts less than half of 1% of work submitted. The editors advise they are looking for work that is “well-crafted and lively, have an intelligent sense of form and language, assume a degree of risk, and have consequence beyond the world of their speakers or narrators.”
