FAQ

When does Red Savina Review accept submissions?

We read year-round.

 

How do I withdraw a submission or single poem?

RSR welcomes simultaneous submissions. Please notify us promptly if your work has been accepted elsewhere. All withdrawals must be done using the withdrawal feature of Submittable. To withdraw a single poem or some of the poems from multiple poems, you must withdraw the entire submission and resubmit available works for consideration.   E-mail withdrawals are NOT permitted.

Do you accept previously published work?

No. We do not accept previously published material. Work that has appeared in print or online (publically accessible blog, website, facebook, self-publishing site, e-zines, journals, newspaper etc.)  is considered to have been previously published and may not be submitted to the Red Savina Review.

Who can submit?

Our policy: anyone 18 years of age and over may submit to the Red Savina Review.

How many times may I submit?

You may submit once per reading period per genre. If we have published your work, we prefer that you wait an issue before submitting again. Please wait to hear back from us on work currently under consideration before submitting additional work.

What is your response time?

Generally 3 months but varies significantly. You may log-in to your submittable account at any time to check the status of your submission. If you have not heard back from us within 3 months you may e-mail the editors at rsreditor@gmail.com.

What do you expect?

We expect common courtesy and professionalism and, most importantly, authentic work. Include a SHORT cover letter. We may request a black and white photo at time of acceptance, but this is optional. 

Do you pay writers?

We believe writers are worth payment and regret that we are unable to pay contributors at present. It is our goal to aim for payment in the future.

Why do you charge a $3.00 submission fee?

We employ an online submission system and require a $3 fee (much of which is taken by the online system management company). The cost of postage to mail a manuscript with SASE is somewhere between $2 and $3, and there are the additional costs for paper, envelopes, ink, and time and fuel spent packaging and going to the PO. Rather than the moolah going to the Postal Service, it goes to help support the very magazine in which you hope to publish. The system makes us more efficient, reduces our carbon footprint, and makes it easier for you to track your submissions. The fees will also allow us to keep publishing new issues.

Do you refund submission withdrawals?

No. We do not refund submissions or submission withdrawals.

Can I send my submission to your email address?

No. We do not consider work via our email account. It will be deleted unread.
