Guidelines for submission:
- All submissions must arrive electronically as an attachment.
- Address submissions to the appropriate genre editor (see preferred e-mail addresses above).
- Simultaneous submissions are strongly discouraged.

- We do not accept submissions by fax.
- Please e-mail the editors with any questions.
- While there are no strict length requirements, the poetry editors prefer to read at least three pages of poetry.
Fiction and Essay/Creative Nonfiction
- Saint Katherine Review does not generally publish pieces over 5000 words; please query before sending longer pieces.
- Please do not submit more than two unsolicited stories or prose works per year for consideration.
- Saint Katherine Review accepts reviews of varying lengths: from notes (150 – 500 words) to regular book reviews (500 – 1200 words) to review essays (1200 – 6000 words). Reviewers should consult back issues of Saint Katherine Review for examples. Please query before submitting review essays.
- Reviewers should consider Saint Katherine Review‘s audience: what contextual information will they need and/or expect? It is often helpful, for example, to discuss where the author or book fits in the contemporary scene and/or in literary history. Helpful, too, are considerations of how the author’s book relates to the author’s other books.
- Please include citations—including page numbers. We will format your review if accepted.
The Press will consider all titles in the humanities and theology.
We do not consider uninvited submissions in fiction and poetry. We do not normally publish festschriften, memoirs, conference proceedings, or unrevised doctoral dissertations.
Authors wishing to present a proposal should write to the editorial department with a brief prospectus, including a description of the work and its intended audience, table of contents, introduction or sample chapter, expected length and number of illustrations, information on the schedule for completion of the manuscript, and a brief curriculum vitae. Complete manuscripts should not be sent unless invited.
