Call for Submissions

The Oklahoma Review is a continuous publication, now in its eleventh year. We publish two issues online each year: Spring (May) and Fall (December).

In the past we have accepted submissions at any time during the year. We will continue to do so, with the following policy changes:
  • Reading dates for the Fall issue will now be from August 1 to November 15;
  • Reading dates for the Spring issue will be January 5 to April 15.
Writers may continue to submit their works at any time; however, nobody will be available to read them outside the above dates. We appreciate your cooperation with this change.


Submissions are welcome from any serious writer working in English. Email your submissions to Writers may submit the following:

  • As many as three (3) prose fiction pieces of 30 pages or less.
  • As many as five (5) poems of any length.
  • As many as three (3) nonfiction prose pieces of 30 pages or less
  • Files should be sent as e-mail attachments in either .doc or .rtf format. We will neither consider nor return submissions sent in hard copy, even if return postage is included.
  • When sending multiple submissions (e.g. five poems), please include all the work in a single file rather than five separate files. 
  • Authors should also provide a cover paragraph with a short biography in the body of their e-mail. 
  • Simultaneous submissions are acceptable. Please indicate in your cover letter if your work is under consideration elsewhere.
  • Please direct all submissions and inquiries to
In 2012 we will be switching over to CLMP's web-based submission management software. I envision a transition period during which we will still accept email submissions, but we will eventually phase that method out. The volume of material we receive and the vagaries of Cameron's email system have made the old system unsustainable. Please bear with us as we make the transition.
