Hawaiʻi Review – Call for Submissions (CLOSED)

Poetry, Short Stories, Essays, Creative Nonfiction, Performance Multi-Media


CLOSED: Mahalo nui loa for all of your submissions. We apologize in advance for any delays in our review process as we take the time to read and discuss the 400+ submissions we received over the past few months. This is amazing work and we will contact you all as soon as we get through enough submissions to make more firm decisions. 


COVID-19 has forced us to reevaluate ourselves, our relationships, and our worldviews. In some ways, we have been given so much time--time spent so much with only ourselves. How we connect with each other has changed and how we spend our time is shifting in ways we were not prepared for. We'd like to read stories about how you've dealt with the rapidly changing world; how you've been spending your time in this new social space we've found ourselves in. 

Submissions of creative writing, poetry, fiction, nonfiction, essays, and multi-media are welcome.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
