Welcome to Split Rock Review's Submissions Hub! 


Split Rock Review is an independent, online publication run by volunteers who love literature, art, and the wilderness. 

We publish poetry, short creative nonfiction and fiction, comics, hybrids, visual poetry, interviews, book reviews, photography, and art that explore place, environment, and the relationship between humans and the natural world.

Submissions for our SHORELINE book review series and submissions for our PHOTIC ZONE interview series are always open and free!

However, our submission window is closed for Issue 17 and the Split Rock Press Chapbook Series. 

Many thanks for your interest in Split Rock Review and Split Rock Press! We look forward to reviewing your work.
