Submissions open for The Gordian Review

The Gordian Review

The Gordian Review is now in its third year and currently accepting submissions for its 2018 issue.

The Gordian Review Vol. 1 2016

Since its inception, The Gordian Review has made a commitment to publishing the voices of today’s graduate students and giving them a unique publishing opportunity just for them. The original idea came from Texas Review Press’ founder and late director, Dr. Paul Ruffin, who wanted to present the world a sneak peek of the next generation of writers.

TGR is an annual online publication operated by SHSU graduate students who collect, select and edit submissions and design, produce and publish the journal. TGR publishes works across genres and forms, accepting submissions in three areas: fiction, nonfiction and poetry.

Submissions are open now until November 15, 2017 and are only accepted through Submittable.

All submissions must include a cover letter with the author’s full name, their student ID number, your school and program you are enrolled in, and your school email address.

The Gordian Review Vol. 2 2017

Submissions must be typed in 12 point Times New Roman (not Garamond, not Helvetica, not Papyrus, Times New Roman), have all pages numbered, and the author’s name and email address on the top of the first page of each submission. The author’s name should NOT appear anywhere else on the manuscript.

All prose should be double spaced, poetry should be single spaced.

No more than 5 poems or 1 work in either fiction or non-fiction may be submitted per applicant, and no more than 1 poem should be on each page of the submission.

We do NOT accept simultaneous submissions or previously published work.

NO submissions from SHSU graduate students will be accepted.

There are no restrictions on subject matter, form or length, so be as creative as you like, but don’t sacrifice quality for quantity or gimmicks.

The editors for 2017/2018 are:

Elizabeth Evans, editor-in-chief and fiction editor

Laura Brackin, nonfiction editor

Savanah Burns, poetry editor
