WHAT WE PUBLISH

Ricochet Review welcomes national and international submissions from high school students, college students, and non-students who have work that fits our theme.

Our issues are themed. The theme for the next issue, Volume 5, will be Prose in Poetry. We will be accepting prose poetry, flash fiction, short form creative nonfiction, lyric essays, epistolary, and poetic memoirs. There are many instructive anthologies on these genres; a useful one-stop shop is Rose Metal Press’ Family Resemblance: An Anthology and Exploration of 8 Hybrid Literary Genres

Reading Period Begins September 6, 2016 and closes December 16, 2016.
