This literary journal is primarily an online publication. Print issues are generated periodically, although we unfortunately cannot guarantee a piece accepted will eventually make it to print.
Email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org as an attachment in MS Word, or as plain text. We suggest you include the word "Submission" in the title of the email, so that we don't mistake it for junk mail. For prose pieces, be sure you specify whether your piece is fiction or nonfiction. For poetry, please include all poems in the same document.
Though email submissions are greatly preferred, you may alternatively submit in hard-copy by sending to 25 Summerset Drive, Smithtown, New York 11787, USA. We prefer disposable copies of manuscripts. We can respond via email in lieu of a SASE if you so designate.
If we have not responded to a submission within three months, please hassle us. We read year-round and never go on hiatus.
Excerpts of longer work will be considered if you believe the work stands alone. Reprints will not be considered unless the work has been, or will be, published in a new or upcoming collection. Simultaneous submissions are encouraged.
Contributors will see drafts of accepted pieces for review prior to release. We obtain no rights to literary work, although we request credit be given to The Summerset Review in the event the work is reprinted and was first published here. Contributors should wait one year before submitting more work.
We nominate stories annually for various anthologies and awards, including Pushcart Prize, Best American Short Stories, and many others. More information about this journal is given in the Masthead link, found in the Table of Contents.
