Seneca Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Dear writers,

Due to budgetary concerns, and in an effort to curb our Submittable expenses, Seneca Review is now charging a $3 fee for work sent via Submittable. However, since we believe that writers should, ideally, be able to submit without paying any fee whatsoever, we will still accept free submissions mailed to our physical address: Seneca Review, 300 Pulteney St., Geneva, NY 14456.

Thank you for your understanding.
