Demarva Review

Here’s an area journal that’s looking for submissions…I always figure that if they’re asking, you’ve got a better shot. So, send out your work!

The Delmarva Review, a regional literary review, announces it is now seeking writing for an “all new” issue in the spring 2008. The publication will consider submissions from all writers, on a rolling acceptance basis, until January 31, 2008. Writers are invited to submit poetry, short fiction, creative nonfiction, and/or short reviews.

Publication guidelines call for “great story-telling and moving poetry. In creative nonfiction we are particularly interested in material influenced by the land and cultures of the Chesapeake Bay and Delmarva regions. Established and emerging writers are encouraged to submit their best work.”

“We also seek illustrative artwork in the form of line drawings and black and white photography. Our standards are for well-written, evocative prose and poetry exhibiting skillful expression,” according to the submission guidelines.

The Delmarva Review, published annually by the Eastern Shore Writers’ Association, was originally founded to feature writing from the Delmarva region, but it now welcomes all writers. Detailed submission guidelines and additional information can be found on the publication’s web site.
