Submission Guidelines

Tuskegee Review is an online magazine from Tuskegee University's Department of Modern Languages, Communication, and Philosophy.

We accept fiction, poetry, nonfiction, one-act plays, hybrid works (submissions blending more than one of these forms), or visual art/photography. 

New issues will be published in May, and submissions are now open on a rolling basis.


There will be no theme for submissions, but please keep prose submissions under 8,000 words. Five poems may be submitted at a time, and they should be contained to a single document. We also ask that submissions of visual art/photography be accompanied by a 200-300 word essay either explaining the work, the creative process, or the inspiration behind the piece(s).


Although traditional, scholarly essays will not be considered, we welcome personal essays, reviews, and work focusing on the community of Tuskegee.


Because the editors will devote time to working with the authors of the selected pieces, we will unfortunately not be able to accept every submission we receive.


Please email your work as an attachment to accompanied by a short cover letter in the body of the email.

The subject line for submissions should read “Submission_YourName_Genre,” and attachments can be in either .doc, .docx, pdf, or rtf.


Art submissions may be low-resolution for evaluation, but the artist/photographer must have a high-resolution image available if accepted.

We prefer original, unpublished work, though we will consider reprint submissions if the work was first published in print. Please let us know in your cover letter if your work is a reprint. 


Please email us to withdraw your work if it is accepted for publication elsewhere.

Note about AI submissions: they're not being accepted. If anything slips between the cracks (it happens), we reserve the right to pull the art or written piece from the website without consulting the writer or artist.
