New Limestone Review is looking for submissions of fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and art on a rolling basis for monthly issues of our online literary review. We have no stated limitations on form or subject matter, but we are looking for work that feels alive. Maybe your characters are living breathing real, or your subject is vital, or the piece just makes us want to sing or cry or run to find someone to show it to. All pieces published online are eligible for inclusion in our annual print publication.

Please note: to maintain the standard of quality associated with New Limestone Review, and to handle ever-increasing number of submissions, we only accept submissions through Submittable. The $4 submission fee covers production costs only; no person on our staff receives any part. New Limestone Review does not offer payment at this time. However, if your work is accepted in the print issue, you will receive a contributor’s copy.

If you are a current student at University of Kentucky, or have been a student within the last 2 years, please do not submit to New Limestone Review. You may enter your work 2 years after your last year of attendance at UK.
