Third Street Review

Literally On the Edge

Located on the Pacific Ocean in the artists’ colony of Laguna Beach, California, Third Street Review lives on the edge, both literally and figuratively. California has always been synonymous with exploration and innovation and, in creative expression, with boundary expansion and the dynamic re-invention of artistic forms. Third Street Review is no different. Share your best writing and visual art. We welcome traditional formats as well as pieces that push boundaries, embrace experimentation, and reflect artistic excellence.

For fiction and nonfiction/creative nonfiction, we are looking for work under 1000 words. If you wish to submit micros, please do so in one document, with each piece of writing on a separate page, and make sure the total word count does not exceed 1000 words.

For poetry, you may send up to 3 poems in one document; make sure each one is on a separate page.

For art and photography, please send 1 image in one document. Please upload the highest resolution that you have available.

FOR ALL SUBMISSIONS: Please make sure that neither your name nor any other identification is on the document you submit or in the title of your submission. All work must be original and previously unpublished. This includes personal blogs or other social media platforms. Simultaneous submissions are fine – just let us know if your work gets accepted elsewhere.

If the category you are looking for is not on the list, it means we have met our submission cap.

We pay $25 (via PayPal) if your work is accepted. 

Online Rights: If we publish your work, we require exclusive electronic rights to it for 3 months and non-exclusive rights indefinitely so we can include it in our online archives.

Print Rights: We require non-exclusive print rights for potential annual anthologies and promotional materials. 

All other rights remain yours.
