We are currently CLOSED to submissions of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and art. We will remain open to submissions in  2021.

*Please include a third-person bio in your cover letter for submission.* 

Unsure of a twist in a story, or the transitions within a poem? If you are a staff member or editor for The Adroit Journal, please feel free to send your writing here (fiction, poetry, song lyrics, prose poetry, etc... anything really!). Other staff members can comment on it, and let you know what they think!

Note: Please do not use the rating tools--keep your evaluation confined to subjective commentary and constructive criticism. Thanks!

Thank you for your interest in interviewing or reviewing for us. 

We are looking for writers who hope to critically transcend, question, investigate, and explore. If this sounds like you, please fill out the below form. 

Note: If you have an existing interview or review you'd like to submit for publication, you may also use this form. Simply put N/A for second and third choices, and proceed as otherwise directed.

In addition, please note that an author’s presence on this list does not necessarily mean they will be available for interviews at the time of (y)our inquiry.

Unfortunately, we are not able to pay our interview conductors and review writers at this time, though we do ensure that they receive one copy each of the books under their consideration. Due to increasing shipping costs, some small presses are unable to ship titles outside the United States; in these cases, PDF copies will be provided.

*At this time, we have an aesthetic preference for interviews.*
