The Columbia Review only accepts electronic submissions sent to with the subject line “Submission [Fall / Spring] [Year].” Simultaneous submissions are welcome. Please submit your writing in a Microsoft Word document. We have no preferred file type for art submissions. We read submissions from the beginning of September to the middle of April, with a break for December and January.

The deadline for the Spring 2018 Issue is Wednesday, April 18th at 11:59 P.M. 

Unfortunately, due to the volume of materials we receive, we cannot respond to every submission or query. We accept or reject almost all pieces within three months of receiving them. If you have not heard back from us within three months, we encourage you to explore other publication options for your piece.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please email us at the address above. We look forward to reading your work.
