"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Red Savina Review

Open to Submissions for Spring

“We believe in concepts such as existential noir, depth, and spirit.”

Submissions accepted year-round.

RSR is seeking general submissions of poetry, flash fiction, and flash creative nonfiction for their upcoming Spring 2016 issue.

Guidelines: www.redsavinareview.org/submit-2/

“Surprise us: We like writing that challenges you, the writer: writing that drags you out of your comfort zone, refuses to stroke your sense of self-esteem, writing that DARES you to let it have its say. Send us polished but evocative work. We like your truth, raw, authentic, brave, witty, thought-provoking, edgy, bold and spicy. We are partial to borderland themes just as we are to the red savina habanero but do not discriminate against other hot peppers or regions. If you happen to be fond of ghost peppers and live in Maine, as long as your love of language is authentic, give us a try. It’s not who you know or where you go, it is what you write. An exploration of the meaning of authenticity is key, no matter where you live, what you look like, or where you went to school.”


They are also seeking poetry submissions to their Denise Levertov Memorial Poetry Prize

Deadline: March 21, 2016. Fee: Only $8.00 entry.

Entries judged by RSR Poetry Editors. Prize: $250.
