Submissions will reopen in August. Thank you all for your support, submissions, and readership.
CRR not only publishes work with Ohio connections, but any poetry or stories featuring original and powerful writing. We publish writers at all levels, emerging and established.
We accept submissions of 1-5 poems and fiction ranging from flash to 3,000 words or so. Simultaneous submissions accepted. However, please notify us if your work is accepted elsewhere. No previously published work.
We accept submissions only through Submittable. All submissions received by mail or email will be discarded. Sorry, but no exceptions. There are no fees to submit, and we cannot offer to pay writers for their work at this time.
Chagrin River Review acquires first rights for publication in multiple formats. Upon publication, rights revert to the author. Chagrin River Review reserves the right to reprint the work if it is selected for inclusion in a Chagrin River Review print anthology at a later date, and to archive the work online.
We do allow submissions by people affiliated with Lakeland Community College, but cannot offer any special treatment.
