Poetry Proposals should include a title, cover letter, a short author biography, a CV/Resume, and the complete manuscript. 

Fiction & General Interest Nonfiction Proposals should include a title, cover letter, table of contents, an estimated word count, a short author biography, a CV/Resume, and the complete manuscript. 

Scholarly Works Proposals should include a title, cover letter, abstract, 2 sample chapters, an estimated word count, a short author biography, and a CV/Resume. We are not interested in unrevised dissertations; dissertations should be revised for a general audience and formatted in Chicago Style. If interested, the editors will request the entire manuscript.


If TRP is interested in pursuing your project, it will move on to the peer-review and editorial processes.

The Sabine Series in Literature highlights work by authors born in or working in Eastern Texas and/or Louisiana. There are no thematic restrictions; Texas Review Press seeks the best writing possible by authors from this unique region of the American South. TRP seeks full-length poetry collections of 50-100 pages, or fiction manuscripts of 40,000-120,000 words.

Poetry Manuscripts should be submitted in their entirety, and should be between 50-100 pages in length.

Fiction Manuscripts should include a cover letter, title, table of contents, a short author biography, a CV/Resume, and the complete manuscript. 

  SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:

 

  All submissions should be typed in 12-point font (preferably Times New Roman).

  Pages must be numbered. 

We consider simultaneous submissions but ask that you notify us promptly if your work is accepted elsewhere.

Prose should be double-spaced. Poetry should be single-spaced with only one poem per page.

Please submit only one short story or nonfiction piece at a time; up to five poems per submission. When submitting multiple poems, combine them in a single Word document or PDF file.

  There are no restrictions on subject matter, form, or length (extremely long pieces are somewhat at a disadvantage--but we have published them in the past and will continue to do so). Anything of excellence is welcome.

 Reporting Time

  Reporting time varies from one to six months. We try to respond as quickly as possible, but as with most literary journals, we sometimes get behind. Be assured that all submissions receive our serious consideration.

  Payment is in contributor's copies and a one year subscription to The Texas Review. We acquire first North American serial rights; copyright reverts to author upon publication.
