The McKinley Review Magazine

How to Submit

Thank you for your interest in The McKinley Review. Please note our submission instructions and guidelines before sending us your original and best work. Submissions that do not follow the guidelines will not be considered favorably.


  • Submissions are on a rolling basis, but if no notification is sent for over a month feel free to email us. We aim to publish every three months.

  • We retain first publication rights for all pieces not previously published, though such rights are reverted back to the writer given print publication. However, the writer must acknowledge this magazine in the event that it is featured afterwards in another publication.

  • While we do accept simultaneous submissions as well as submissions of previously published pieces, please notify us of publication details upon submitting.


Apart from these factors, there are no limits to word count, formatting, or number of works. Just send your piece of writing (any genre) to along with a cover letter that includes a short biography. Any questions can also be directed to the same email.


We look forward to reviewing your work!
