Publisher's description: The Dawn Review is an international literary magazine that promotes the surprising, the genre-bending, and the overwhelmingly human. Founded by poet Ziyi Yan, The Dawn Review publishes all genres of written and visual work.
Within each issue, The Dawn Review showcases pieces that are original and surprising, whether through new language, new ideas, or new forms. The Dawn Review publishes three issues annually. Each issue is free to the public, and is not split by genre, allowing readers to enjoy creative work without the constraint of categorization. Three contributors per issue are spotlighted through interview features in The Dawn Review’s blog, and published pieces are nominated for the Pushcart Prizes and Best of the Net.
The Dawn Review accepts submissions on all themes, from creatives of all ages and demographics. Free, detailed feedback is offered to every submission upon request, meaning that decisions (even rejections) are incredibly personalized. On occasion, The Dawn Review works with submitters through multiple rounds of revision to refine their pieces for publication. All submissions to The Dawn Review are read blindly, all of the writing in each issue is unsolicited, and The Dawn Review will never have submission fees. With its editorial work, The Dawn Review seeks to uplift writers and artists while promoting accessibility.
In addition to publishing triannual issues, The Dawn Review runs an annual poetry contest for emerging writers, called the Dawn Prize for Poetry, judged by The Dawn Review’s staff in conjunction with other acclaimed poets.
