We're interested in undergraduate writing with fresh language, complexity, strong character development, emotional resonance, and momentum. We want to read something we haven't read before. We want your language to linger in us long after we've finished the piece. Please read past issues for examples of what we're looking for. We accept fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, literary translations, and art.
With the exception of literary translations, all accepted works will be featured both in our print and online issues. Literary translations will only appear in print due to copyright restrictions.
Each year, Susquehanna Review offers the Gary Fincke Creative Writing Prize for the best piece of poetry ($100) and the best piece of prose ($100) in the issue. There is no entry fee. All submissions to Susquehanna Review will automatically be under consideration for the contest, with the exception of students of Susquehanna University. The contest will be judged by one of the Susquehanna University Creative Writing faculty. All contributors are invited to read at the magazine launch in the spring.
