The Adirondack Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

The Adirondack Review is an online quarterly magazine of art and literature. We publish poetry, fiction, works of translation, creative nonfiction, and book reviews, plus a full slate of art and photography per issue. We value work that invites our readers to visit an altered perspective, one which may effect a new worldview and reveal fundamental entanglements among people, objects, and the evolving spaces they occupy.

Open Reading Periods

We accept art, photography, translation, poetry, fiction, reviews, and essay submissions during four open reading periods. 


UPDATE 2020: we are on hiatus and are not accepting submissions at this time. Thank you for your patience, and we wish you well during these trying and unprecedented times.



Our 46er Prize for Poetry is open annually from January 1 - February 28, with the winner being published in the summer issue. The Fulton Prize for Fiction is open from July 1 - August 31, with the winner being published in the winter issue. Each prize is $400 plus publication.

A Note About Submission Fees

For almost 18 years, we did not charge a reading fee during open reading periods. We also never sold subscriptions or space on our pages to advertisers. Ultimately, though, this meant that we struggled to keep up with payments for web hosting, submission management, and software. We also really wished we could compensate our tireless editors and talented contributors for their exceptional work.

So, as part of a soft relaunch and redesign in 2018, we have decided to charge $2 for submissions. In return, moving forward, your donation will help us pay editors and contributors $25 each for their work. Your generosity also ensures that this magazine continues to exist. We're always imagining new features and community-based practices, and can't wait to keep evolving for years to come. 

Stay tuned for more. And thank you, as always, for your support. We couldn't do any of it without you.
