Please make sure to read our terms. By submitting to Apeiron Review you are agreeing with our Terms.
What We Want
We want something real, something beautiful, something ugly, and something that sings to the far reaches of our being. Make us laugh or make us cry, but we want something visceral. Free verse poems are generally favored over those that rhyme. Experimentation is encouraged. There are no limits on form but please keep short stories and nonfiction to 5k or less. Please do not send attachments.
We do accept flash fiction with 1k word counts or less. Again, please do not send attachments.
We are open to submissions 3 times a year. In addition, we will occasionally run flash fiction contests.
Open September 1st and close on October 15th
Open January 1st and close on February 15th
Open May 15th and close on June 30th.
We are looking for brutal, surreal, experimental, and/or beautiful photography. Send us your best (high resolution) photos to firstname.lastname@example.org The submission period for photography matches the period for standard submissions.
Apeiron Review takes one-time non-exclusive electronic rights and archival rights to your work.
We are always eager for nonfiction pieces, however we ask that the writer be prepared to support their story and assist, if necessary, with verifying statements of fact. The writer assumes all responsibility for inaccuracies. Essentially, we will do our very best to make sure that no one will be harmed in the publishing of a true story, but in the end, it’s on the writer to avoid slander and untrue statements.
Accepted submissions may be edited for spelling, grammar, and punctuation. We will not make large changes without first providing you with a proof for your review prior to publication.
Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please let us know if a piece is published elsewhere. We do not accept reprints.
Currently there is no payment for publication.
