"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

Send us beauty, dirt, despair, and hope. Make us feel with the depth of your words and art. 3K word limit on fiction & nonfiction; flash up to 1K; submit no more than 3 poems – free verse is favored along with other styles that showcase skill more than simply rhyme. Genre fiction is not encouraged. Novice writers welcome. Full cover letter not needed.

Guidelines from their website:

Please make sure to read our terms. By submitting to Apeiron Review you are agreeing with our Terms.

What We Want

We want something real, something beautiful, something ugly, and something that sings to the far reaches of our being. Make us laugh or make us cry, but we want something visceral. Free verse poems are generally favored over those that rhyme. Experimentation is encouraged. There are no limits on form, but please keep short stories and nonfiction to 3k or less.

We do accept flash fiction with 1k word counts or less.
We are open to submissions for our main issue two times a year.

General submissions:

Open March 1-31: Publication will occur in September.

Open September 1-30: Publication will occur in March.

 Weekly Featured Content: Currently Closed

Seasonal poems, short short stories, and creative nonfiction are accepted on a rolling basis for publication on our site. This is a completely separate feature from our bi-annual magazine. Continue to our Submittable page (by clicking on the giant Submit buttons at the top and bottom of this page) for more information.


We are looking for brutal, surreal, experimental, and/or beautiful photography. Send us your best (high resolution) photos.


Apeiron Review takes one-time non-exclusive electronic rights and archival rights to your work.

We are always eager for nonfiction pieces, however we ask that the writer be prepared to support their story and assist, if necessary, with verifying statements of fact. The writer assumes all responsibility for inaccuracies. Essentially, we will do our very best to make sure that no one will be harmed in the publishing of a true story, but in the end, it’s on the writer to avoid slander and untrue statements.

Accepted submissions may be edited for spelling, grammar, and punctuation. We will not make large changes without first providing you with a proof for your review prior to publication.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please let us know if a piece is published elsewhere. We do not accept reprints.

At this time we do not mail out contracts. Currently, by submitting to us you are agreeing to the above terms.


Currently there is no payment for publication. We’re working on this.
