The Nevada Review is interested in original writings included in, but not limited to, the following areas:
Original Scholarly Articles: Original scholarly articles will provide an opportunity for independent scholars and those associated with postsecondary institutions to publish on a wide range of issues stemming from their own research. Articles will be fully cited and peer-reviewed. There are no length requirements.
Creative Non-Fiction: Creative non-fiction essays will provide an opportunity for independent or higher education-affiliated scholars to publish on wide-ranging issues in our region. These essays will be fully cited, if necessary, and peer reviewed. Full length essays not exceeding 10,000 words.
Original Literature: The Original Literature section will provide an opportunity for fiction writers to publish original works on Nevada in the West. This section will be predominantly for prose contributions; the Review is not accepting poetry submissions at this time. A guest editor for literature will be invited to participate in the editing process for each issue of The Nevada Review to help choose an exceptional work, or provide an original piece of their own. These pieces will be limited to 6,000 words.
Ideas/People: The Ideas portion will provide an opportunity for state and local leaders to weigh in on issues of general concern. This will be limited to non-partisan, impersonal, and original works of approximately 1,500-2,500 words in length. The People portion of The Nevada Review will provide an opportunity for third-party writers to cover state leaders and thinkers. These pieces will be either profiles or interviews, and will be limited to 2,500 words.
Book Reviews: The Book Reviews section will provide a place for a review of Western- or Nevada-related books, fiction and non-fiction. These reviews will place the book in their broader context, state the significance of the book, and provide a brief summary. These reviews will most-often be written by chosen experts, and limited to be between 750 and 1,200 words.
Interviews: The Nevada Review is interested in interviews of Nevada figures. Please inquire before conducting the interview and do not submit audio recordings. There are no length requirements.
Unsolicited Poetry not accepted at this time.
