The current reading period has closed. The Yale Review will be open for submissions again in the fall of 2019. We are still accepting submissions for YR Online; please see below.

YR Online

Earlier this year, The Yale Review initiated a section on this website’s homepage, updated weekly, with a slightly different aesthetic from the Review’s print edition. YR Online publishes shorter, less formal prose (e.g., nonfiction and fiction up to about 1,500 words) exclusively online. Examples can be viewed on the homepage, and also here: scroll over to the pull-down menu under “Collections” and select “YR Online archive.” To submit work for consideration, send an email, including a brief bio, to and attach a Word document of the piece.  (Note: YR Online does not publish poetry. Poetry may again be submitted for the print journal in the fall of 2019.)

Thank you for your interest in The Yale Review.
