The Atlantic Essay Submissions

The editors of SAR welcome submissions of essays concerned with the study of language, literature, rhetoric and composition, and other topics of scholarly concern: essays must be in English. SAR also considers proposals for clusters of essays and full issues related to a specific topic.

The review process begins with an internal evaluation. Essays deemed suitable for further publication consideration are subject to external blind review by qualified referees. Editors determine the number of outside reviewers needed for a given essay; generally, there are two. The editors of SAR make final publication decisions. Editors will communicate with authors by email.

Please note: due to the amount of time and resources expended for the review of scholarly essays, SAR asks that authors not submit an essay simultaneously to other journals for publication consideration. Should SAR elect not to publish the work, our editors will endeavor to provide authors with a timely and detailed publication decision.

SAR does not accept proposals for individual essays: a full essay is required in order to receive publication consideration. Sections IV and V provide information regarding the specific requirements for submitting an essay. Essays should be submitted to Managing Editor at [email protected].

Proposals for essay clusters and special issues may include the essays or a selection of the essays; however, this is not required. Proposals should include the following details: name of guest editor(s) for the cluster or special issue; brief description of the topic; scholarly significance of the topic; names of authors and essay titles or topics (or, if there will be an open call for papers, please include a draft and any information regarding the circulation of the CFP). Send proposals to Editor Barton Palmer by email to [email protected] with a copy to the SAR editorial office at [email protected].

SAR requires standard formatting for all essays submitted for publication consideration, including those that are a part of an essay cluster or special issue. Essays that fail to adhere to these requirements will be returned to authors for reformatting before initiation of the consideration process.

Essays should be submitted as an attachment to an email directed to the Managing Editor at [email protected]. SAR also requires the following materials to accompany an essay submitted for publication consideration:

SAR endeavors to administer an efficient review process for essays. There are times, however, when the review process can take longer than expected. Please see the estimated timetable below. If you have not heard from SAR pursuant to this time table, please contact the Managing Editor at [email protected] to inquire about the status of your work.

Upon completion of the external review and editorial decision, authors will receive prompt communication by email regarding the publication of their essay. Please direct specific questions regarding the review process to the Managing Editor at [email protected].

When the author submits the final version of the essay for publication, the managing editor will communicate to the author the volume number and issue for inclusion on their curriculum vitae. Page numbers are not available until the time of printing. The timetable for copyediting, galley review, and publication will also be communicated at this time.

Because essay clusters and special issues have a guest editor, the communication and formatting process is slightly different from that of a single-essay submission. Guest editors serve as the primary contact for SAR and for the authors during the proposal, editorial review, and publication process. The guest editor will collect the essays and send them as a group to the SAR editorial office.

Deadline: The review accepts submissions during three time periods, September, December, and May. Submit earlier in the month because they will stop accepting submissions when their cap is reached.

Another one high on the prestige list, The Georgia Review features a wide variety of essays, fiction, book reviews, and more across a wide range of topics. You can read specific requirements for each in the submission guidelines, but the common theme among them all is quality, quality, quality.

A diverse publication that features both award-winning and emerging writers, VQR accepts short fiction (3,500 to 8,000 words) but is not a fan of genre work like romance, sci-fi and fantasy. It also takes nonfiction (3,500 to 9,000 words) like travel essays that examine the world around us.

Dogwood is a journal of poetry and prose based out of Fairfield University. This annual publication only opens for submissions in the Fall, and each edition includes prizes for top pieces. Literary nonfiction from all walks of life are welcome here.

Hippocampus Magazine is one of the best creative nonfiction magazines out there, as it focuses solely on the publication of personal essays and nonfiction stories. Their strictly digital publication is highly literary and has many great creative nonfiction examples and pieces. Despite being a highly competitive journal, both new and emerging writers can find a home at Hippocampus.

AGNI, a highly literary publication run at Boston University, publishes fiery, transformative prose and poetry. Creative nonfiction submissions should be polished, inventive, and highly original. Be sure to read their previous publications for an idea of what they look for!

The Virginia Quarterly publishes a wide array of literary nonfiction, fiction, and poetry, promising both ample readership and ample pay. VQR seeks inventive and imaginative stories, and it accepts both personal essays and nonfiction pieces on literary and cultural criticism. Submissions are generally open in July, but keep tuned for any special announcements or brief reading periods!

Many creative nonfiction journals allow simultaneous submissions, meaning you can submit the same piece to multiple journals. However, if one journal accepts your work, you need to notify the other journals that it has been accepted and is no longer available for consideration.

Keeping track of your creative nonfiction submissions in a spreadsheet or personal organizer is essential: if multiple journals publish your story, it could harm your chances of getting published in the future.

By publishing an essay or excerpt published before you write the book, you can be reassured that your story is meaningful and worth pursuing. These are all reasons I think you should try and get an essay published on the topic of your book-length memoir.
