The Sierra Nevada Review is an annual literary magazine published in May featuring poetry, short fiction, and literary nonfiction. Editors read manuscripts from September until mid-February. Response time may vary between several weeks and several months. The editorial staff changes on a yearly basis with the exception of the advisory editors, June Sylvester Saraceno and Laura Wetherington.
We publish writing that leans toward the unconventional, surprising, and risky. We appreciate experiments in form and content, and prefer works whose meanings deepen on repeated readings.
