Literary Cleveland is pleased to introduce Gordon Square Review, an online literary magazine published biannually to showcase emerging writers nationwide, award editing mentorships, and provide a venue to spotlight Northeast Ohio writers. Submissions for GSR's first issue are open now through October 15th, 2017. Submissions are free, and accepted contributors will be paid a modest honorarium. Writers will receive $25 per accepted prose piece and $10 per accepted poem.

PROSE SUBMISSIONS
We consider short stories, personal essays, and hybrid prose works. Please submit one piece of prose up to 5,000 words OR up to three flash pieces of 1,000 words or fewer (attached in a single document). While we don’t shy away from blurred genre lines, please note that our focus and aesthetic is literary. Specify whether your work is fiction or nonfiction and use standard manuscript formatting: double space the document, use one-inch margins, and use a serif font, preferably Times New Roman.

POETRY SUBMISSIONS
Please limit your submission to three poems attached in a single document. If one of your submitted poems is accepted elsewhere, please use your Submittable account to add a note to your submission indicating which title(s) should be removed from our consideration.

EDITORIAL MENTORSHIPS
All general submissions from writers in any geographical location are eligible for our competitive editorial mentorships. No separate application process is required, and writers need not take any additional steps to be considered for a mentorship. Each Gordon Square Review editor will independently choose one piece of writing received during the 2017 submission period and work with that writer to revise the piece for publication. Selected writers will be asked to contribute a micro essay about the process. Writers should submit their best, most polished work to Gordon Square Review to improve their chances of being selected for publication or an editorial mentorship.
