Submission Guidelines

The Cortland Review considers poetry, translations, and book reviews. Send us your best work!

The Cortland Review accepts simultaneous submissions, but we kindly ask that you message us through your Submittable account as soon as possible when you have placed poems elsewhere. All submissions must be previously unpublished. Please don’t “withdraw” the submission unless you plan to withdraw the entire submission; for single poem withdrawals, just send us a message attached to your submission.

Submit up to 5 poems at a time.

Please use Garamond, Times New Roman or some other such font in 12 pt. Please do not put poem titles in all-caps. Do not center poems on the page.

Please use Submittable to query first before submitting a book review.

The Cortland Review does its best respond to all submissions within 3-4 months.

We’re now accepting submissions through Submittable:
