We look for well-written book reviews that are analytical or that draw comparisons to history or culture, especially in an essay style. We have a vast readership and will feature any style, genre, author, or publisher, large and small alike, if the review is of interest to our readership. We currently accept finished reviews only, no pitches and no queries to review your book. We especially want to hear from marginalized and underrepresented authors, and we are an LGBTQUIA+ safe-space.

  • Reviews have a minimum requirement of at least 600 words and at least 2 snippets of quoted text/writing samples from the book.
  • All work must be in English and must be the author’s own. We do not consider AI-generated works.
  • If you need to adjust a submission, please use the Request to Edit option through Submittable. Please don’t request to edit for minor flaws, however—all accepted work will go through an editing process and will have the chance to be updated before publication, and your work will not be disqualified for a missing comma.
  • All authors must be at least 18 to submit.
  • Simultaneous submissions allowed. If your review is picked up elsewhere, please withdraw your submission through Submittable.
  • Previously published reviews are not considered.
  • Submit via Submittable only. We do not accept email submissions.
  • This is a free form that is unique to you and shouldn't be shared with others. There is a $2 administrative fee for anyone able to pay.
  • We will send a response to every submission within two months. Form response only, unless we are interested in publishing your work. We are regretfully unable to provide feedback. If you have not heard back from us within two months, please feel free to contact us (kindly).
  • We pay $10 per accepted review.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
