Submit

Harbor Review accepts original, previously unpublished submissions of poetry and visual art. We publish two issues a year. Each issue includes ten poets and ten artists. We place poems in conversation with visual art. This process can take some time. We try to respond to every submission in six months. We do accept simultaneous submissions, but please notify us immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere so we can remove it from consideration.


We are currently open for submissions!

We will accept submissions for our winter issue “#4” from August 1st to October 31, 2019.

We will accept submissions for our summer issue “#5: Portraiture” from February 1st to April 30, 2020. You may interpret this theme however you like.
