Our mission as a Literary Journal is to publish new work, foster a supportive creative community, and help writers with all matters related to being published, performed, and produced.
We mark entries blindly to ensure fairness for all writers. We adhere to the CLMP Contest Code of Ethics.
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.
Letter Review will always pay writers professional rates, and seek submissions from writers who live anywhere in the world.
