ISO Reviews of Lit Journal Work

Sharpen your review-writing skills…and help draw attention to worthy pieces published in lit journals:

Piece Meal is an internet journal ( that reviews single pieces of writing featured in literary magazines. There aren’t enough spaces in the writing world where one-good-thing is thought about. In Piece Meal we look at a single story, a poem or two, or some other piece of writing/media and provide an attentive review. We especially like the idea of giving writers without printed books a chance to be taken seriously. Each review should be a minimum of 500 words. There is no maximum length. Check out previous reviews on our website for examples:

Feel free to relate any sociological, historical, psychological or scatological references you think will help your review of the work. We are also open to short work comparisons from the same magazine, as well as hearing review ideas you have in mind that do not fit the criteria above. We’re generally open-minded gents.

Besides recognizing writers without published books, Piece Meal is a great opportunity for writers to practice writing reviews and get their reviews published. Each reviewer should be open to editorial comments. We will do our best to respond as soon as we can. Feel free to email with questions/ queries.

To submit your literary review of a short story, poem(s), creative nonfiction or other media that can be found in or on print and online literary magazines, excluding artwork, video or film, send an email to piecemealreviewATgmailDOTcom.
