We strive to connect readers with excellent new writing. Our mission as a literary magazine is to publish new work, foster a supportive creative community, and help writers and artists with all matters related to being published, performed, and produced.

At least 90% of the work we publish comes to us unsolicited, and submitted directly by the writer. We mark entries blindly to ensure fairness for all writers. We adhere to the CLMP Contest Code of Ethics.

The Letter Review features interviews with professional writers, publishes helpful information, runs competitions with monetary prizes, and remains open to unsolicited submissions of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.

The Letter Review will always pay writers professional rates, and seek submissions from writers who live anywhere in the world.

Letter Review emerges as a hallowed space where words bleed, mend, and soar. Within its pages, we find not just tales, but the delicate pulse of memories, interwoven with the age-old craft of storytelling and vulnerability. To have my voice cradled in such a sacred place is a serenade to the moonlit hours where prose meets poetry. A profound honor. The Letter Review stands as a monument of writing wisdom and talent. Being part of this mosaic of narrative and verse is a true honor.
