Submissions

The Canopy Review is an annual literary journal that acts as a space for groundbreaking literary work. It includes poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and non-traditional stories across all genres and styles. 

​Submissions are open annually from February through April.

The Canopy Review Vol. 2 is forthcoming in the Fall of 2020.

Please submit all work through Submittable. Simultaneous submissions are accepted.  Please contact us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere and withdraw your submission through Submittable. If a poem in a group of 3-5 poems is accepted, please send us a note via Submittable identifying which pieces are no longer available.

We only consider unpublished work. Please do not submit any pieces that have been published on your personal blog, on your Facebook page, in other magazines/journals including those online, in an anthology, or chapbook.

Individuals previously affiliated with the College of New Rochelle (students, staff, and/or faculty), should not submit to The Canopy Review until they have been unaffiliated for five full years.
