Concentrating on publications from independent and university presses, we invite submissions of novels, novellas, short story and flash fiction collections, poetry (book-length and chapbook), young adult, and children’s literature. Wolfson Review is accessible to all readers, as we cover a diverse range of genres and themes. Our team strives to provide a community that is inclusive, engaging, and respectful while introducing readers to the exciting work being produced by small presses. We are interested in the literary voices of all generations.
