Little Patuxent Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Little Patuxent Review is accepting submissions of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and artwork for the Summer 2015 unthemed issue. The poet Bei Dao wrote, “Freedom is nothing but the distance / between the hunter and the hunted.” LPR’s unthemed issue provides the freedom; tell us what passions, obsessions, and themes you are hunting, or are hunting you.  Submissions will be open until March 1, 2015. Please see the submission guidelines below for each category and familiarize yourself with the work we publish by visiting our excerpt archive and purchasing an issue.
