We happily accept simultaneous submissions, but let us know immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere. We also accept submissions via the United States Post Office; see Submission Guidelines for that information. 

With your submission, please include a short cover letter, and include your name as you'd like it to appear throughout the Review. We'd also appreciate a brief bio that includes your graduating year. Please take a look at our sample bios (below), and make sure yours falls within these parameters.
