Two Cities Review is looking for high-quality fiction, poetry and creative non-fiction that bridges the gap between forms, genres, or realities. We interpret this loosely, but are especially excited by work that crosses form or genre in a new and exciting way.


What to Submit:

Send fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction of no more than 3,000 words. We accept simultaneous submissions and will contact you before publishing your work. You can submit at our Submittable page here.
Please include a cover letter and submit your writing on our online submissions manager as a .doc, .docx, .pages, or .pdf file.
You may submit multiple pieces at once as long as the total word count is not over 3,000 words.
We also accept submissions for our online Featured Works blog. If we can’t fit your piece in our quarterly issue, we’ll consider it for the blog.
Have a story that works better as an audio piece than as a written text? Want to film that short screenplay? Two Cities is looking for 3-7 minute stories, interviews and other creative works in the form of audio and video submissions. Please submit audio as WAV, MP3 or AIFF files and video as MOV, MP4 or AVI files.

Author Rights:

If we accept your piece, you grant us first serial rights. Your work will remain on our website, but rights revert back to you on publication. You are free to republish the piece or give others the right to publish it, but we ask that you acknowledge it was first published with Two Cities. You grant us non-exclusive re-print rights for publishing the piece in our quarterly online publication.

What We’re Looking For:

Stick around, read the site, and get to know the Review. We are looking for vivid writing of the highest caliber. Make us laugh or cry. Make your first page awesome.

Graphic designer, artist, photographer?

We’re looking for images to complement the writings we select and illustrate urban life today. Submit your photos or images for consideration at Submittable, right here.
