The Piltdown Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


The Piltdown Review seeks short fiction submissions that balance elegant writing with actual story. We pay 1¢ a word on acceptance. Our preferred length is between 1,000 and 10,000 words, though it's possible that extraordinary work outside that range might win us over. We prefer original stories that have not previously appeared elsewhere, but will consider reprints if you have the electronic rights. We are happy to consider work in any genre, including speculative genres, so long as the writing is strong and distinctive.

We pay 10¢ a line on acceptance for original poetry. We are looking for poems with a compelling voice and vivid imagery that say something inexpressible in prose.

(We do occasionally publish essays or reprint poetry, but only works we solicit. Please do not query about such works.)

We look forward to reading and enjoying your work. Best of luck!
