Submission Guidelines

The Paris Review

All submissions must be in English and previously unpublished. Translations are acceptable and should be accompanied by a copy of the original text. Simultaneous submissions are also acceptable as long as we are notified immediately if the manuscript is accepted for publication elsewhere.

We strongly suggest to all who submit that they read the most recent issues of The Paris Review to acquaint themselves with material the magazine has published. Subscriptions are available here.

The Paris Review only accepts submissions sent in hard copy through the mail. We do not currently accept submissions electronically, including by email. Fiction manuscripts and essays should be sent to the attention of the Fiction Editor and poetry manuscripts to the Poetry Editor at the following address:

The Paris Review
544 West 27th Street
New York, NY 10001

Please submit no more than one short story, one nonfiction piece, or six poems at a time. Please be sure to include a phone number and (if possible) email address. Rejected manuscripts will not be replied to unless accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope. If you wish to have your manuscript returned, please provide sufficient postage on the SASE, and make note that our readers should include your manuscript with their reply. Otherwise, manuscripts will be recycled. While the magazine welcomes unsolicited submissions, it cannot accept responsibility for their loss or engage in related correspondence.


The Daily

We publish nonfiction stories on arts and culture. We strongly suggest to all who submit that they read the Daily to acquaint themselves with our editorial voice and sensibility. Pitches are preferred to pieces written on spec; please keep submissions to under two thousand words.

All submissions must be in English and previously unpublished. Simultaneous submissions are also acceptable, but please notify us immediately if the piece is accepted for publication elsewhere.

Please send pitches and submissions to [email protected]

Because of the volume of submissions, and the timely nature of the blog, we are unable to respond to all inquiries. We will only respond to those that we’re interested in.
