The Westchester Review is a print publication. We publish one issue a year. We look for satisfying and compelling work - there are no restrictions on subject, style, or genre. However, as we are a regional publication, all writers must demonstrate some current or previous connection to New York’s Westchester County area. It can be a loose one.

We consider only previously unpublished work.

We hold several readings a year in venues around Westchester County. While it's certainly not required, we love it when our authors read their work at our events.


We accept up to two prose pieces per author per submission cycle.

We will not read pieces that exceed 5,000 words. Please use double-spacing and a 12 point, standard font - we suggest Times New Roman.

Writers may submit up to five poems per submission. Each poem must be single-spaced.

Please use a 12 point, standard font - we suggest Times New Roman.
