Submit your work between September 1 and December 1 using our Submittable.
ALL work submitted during this period will be under consideration for the Writer Awards. You do not have to send any separate submissions for the contest.
Please do NOT submit any work via email or snail mail. All hard copy submissions will be recycled without being reviewed.
This world offers a host of guidelines that are physical, natural, figurative, and imagined. Daily we navigate through social, political, and geographic boundaries. Some of us find loopholes and sneak through. Sometimes we break through either for worse or for better. Send us works that show how boundaries keep order or keep us down.
If you are NOT a member of the Nassau Community College Community, please follow these general guidelines:
In the Bio/Cover Letter box on Submittable, please include a short note that includes:
By solicitation only
If you ARE a member of the NCC Community, please follow the guidelines above *AND* submit your work to the Voices of NCC category on Submittable. Do NOT use the genre categories for your submission. Include in your cover letter how you are part of the NCC community AND the genre of your work.
Members of the NCC Community include all past and present faculty, staff, and administration.
NCC students are not eligible for publication. Current students should submit to the student run Creative Writing Club's journal, LUNA.
Alumni students are eligible to submit under the general guidelines, though you should indicate in your cover letter when you graduated or attended NCC. Members of the NCC Community are NOT eligible for cash awards.
Note: Editors may respond with a conditional acceptance, delineating minor edits that need to be made before publication. As the author, you reserve the right to withdraw your work should you not accept the constructive feedback.
Publication Rights: By submitting your work, you agree to have your work published in one issue of The Nassau Review as well as possibly on our website. You grant us first North American serial rights and the right to archive your work online for an indefinite period of time. You retain all other rights, which means you can republish the work in other journals (after one year from the date of publication in our journal), and you can republish it in or as your own book. Any subsequent publication of accepted work should note that you were first published in The Nassau Review.
The Nassau Review pays its contributors with one hard copy of the review. The journal is only available in print. Failure to follow the guidelines will result in your submission not being read and you will not receive a response.
