Dear poets,

Due to a recent influx in submissions, we’ve closed our poetry submissions early for the year. Fiction submissions will remain open until our usual deadline of April 30. Nonfiction submissions are read and accepted year-round. We respect the hard work you put into your craft, and we would feel terrible guilt at not being able to consider and respond to additional submissions until the Fall. Until then, consider sending your amazing work to another wonderful journal like The Missouri Review or AGNI or keep it safe and fresh in a sealed container stored in a cool, dry place until August 1 when submissions to Colorado Review will reopen.
