General Guidelines


We will reopen to regular submissions on October 1st, 2016



The Cossack Review accepts submissions of new work on a rolling basis. Work will be considered for upcoming and future print and web issues of the review.

Use 12 pt. Times New Roman or similar.

Please submit only once in each category before hearing back from us. After you receive a response, wait at least two months before submitting again. 

Please do not include your name in your submitted document, and do not include cover letters in your submissions; use the space provided on the Submittable form to share your cover letter or publication history.

We welcome simultaneous submissions and do not expect you to withhold work from one journal in favor of another. However, should your work be accepted elsewhere, inform us immediately by withdrawing the entire submission, or by adding a note to your submission (poets).
