The Summerset Review
From the Editor
The Summerset Review started as an online literary quarterly in 2002, publishing exclusively fiction and nonfiction. With a staff of three volunteers, the magazine faithfully produced its issues on time, reviewing unsolicited submissions year-round, the great majority of which were made electronically and sent through email from hopeful writers ranging from high school students to authors with many published books to their names. Since 2002, the magazine gained several staff members (still all volunteers), has taken on poetry, book reviews, and occasionally art, and produced a few print issues collecting a sampling of work that previously appeared online. Remaining ad-free and simple to navigate and read, the publication has continued to release all issues on time and full of variety. The Summerset Review has read at The New York Public Library, national conferences, colleges, and other places, including events sponsored by the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP), the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), and the Association of Literary Scholars and Critics (ALSC). Print issues of the magazine are frequently donated to book fairs across the country, with all proceeds going to charitable causes in the respective areas.
Prose writers are invited to submit literary fiction and nonfiction of up to 8,000 words, and poets may submit up to five poems. To get more of an idea of what we are looking for, please read The Summerset Review or consult our Recommended Reading List.
