We encourage writers and artists to submit their work for online and print publication by San Antonio Review. San Antonio Review does not charge for review or publication.
Genres include but are not limited to:
Spoken Word (Audio)
Works utilizing the capabilities of the PubPub platform
We publish a wide variety of work. If you think your work doesn’t fit into a listed genre, submit it anyway with your suggestion(s) for how we work together.
PubPub gives submitters the ability to create or import their work directly into San Antonio Review’s Pending Submissions queue. Each “Pub” is a single submission. Writers and artists are encouraged to use the Pub editor to format their submissions as they’d like them to appear in San Antonio Review — no more hoping the editors get your spacing correct (yippee!). You can also insert pictures, audio and video and embed media directly into your Pub. You can even use LaTeX commands to insert scientific and mathematical equations, uncommon typographical elements and more.
To submit, click Create Pub.
Register for PubPub. They collect very limited information and do not share it.
If needed, click Create Pub again.
Change the title from "Untitled . . ." to your work's title.
Edit your byline.
Type or import your submission. (Note PDFs cannot be imported as they are proprietary.)
Check the submission's formatting for accuracy.
When you're finished, click Request Publication and enter your cover letter/introduction.
Be sure to include a short biography and your email at the end of your piece.
To ensure receipt, feel free to email us at [email protected] letting us know something new is waiting for us. Direct questions there, too.
While we aren’t technical geniuses, we’re always willing to help you figure out how to submit your work so that it appears in its best form. Review the following resources and contact us if you need help:
San Antonio Review encourages visual artists working in all media to submit work for online and print publication.
How We Use Your Work
Online: We are open to presenting your work in a variety of ways, but we generally publish art alongside a separately authored written work online (no connection between the two being necessary). View any of our recent publications for examples.
We are also launching our Arts section featuring independent artists. If you’d like to be featured, please note that in your submission.
In print: Artists selected for inclusion in our print edition have three works published on individual pages in our Arts section. We have also used, with permission, submitted artwork to create our cover design in the past (see Volume III).
How You Are Credited
When submitting, please include details about each work including media, materials, date(s) created, size. If the piece is available for purchase, you may include a price. This information along with your brief biography will be listed at the bottom of the page on which your piece is published online. We will include relevant links to your site or social media profiles.
Acceptance does not guarantee publication in the print edition.
While submissions utilizing PubPub’s capabilities are encouraged, we understand if you prefer to submit in a more traditional manner or do not have regular Internet access.
