The Sextant Review accepts unsolicited submissions year round, and reads on a rolling basis. We are looking for a variety of content and subject matter, but are not interested in pieces that express hatred or violence towards any group of people. We often choose a theme after reading and beginning the submission selection process, so we never know exactly what we're looking for until a piece of work strikes us.

To submit, please read the following instructions carefully. Submissions that do not adhere to the instructions will not be read.



We are interested in publishing a larger selection of work from a few poets in each issue. As such, please send three to seven poems per submission. Pieces may belong to single series, be part of a larger work, or may demonstrate a range of the poet's interest and style.


We publish one to two pieces of prose of any genre per issue, and are interested in everything from flash fiction (1000 words or less) to excerpts from longer works. Up to 5000 words.


Form essays on any subject, thought-provoking and well-crafted. Up to 5000 words.


English translations of poetry from any language.
