We’re delighted to devote the upcoming issue exclusively to FICTION—short story, flash, or graphic. We’re looking to be moved, excited, provoked, and enthralled by your work, so send us the best, most impactful piece you have.

Guest Editors:

Tania Hershman & Jessamyn Hope


  • “Long” Short Fiction –One short story up to 4000 words long

We are happy to consider translations of original work, providing the translator has obtained permission from the author. Be sure to include the original work in Word format.

  • We only consider work that has not been previously published. This includes internet venues, blogs and self published work.
  • Please include a short bio (50 -75 words) with your submission.
  • We will consider simultaneous submissions but ask that you retract your work immediately if it is accepted for publication elsewhere.
  • If your work appears in our current issue, we kindly ask that you refrain from submitting to our upcoming issue.
  • We retain first serial rights. At the time of publication, all rights revert back to the author. However, The Ilanot Review retains the right to publish the piece(s) in any subsequent issue or anthology, whether in print or online. Should you decide to republish the piece elsewhere, we ask that you cite The Ilanot Review as a place of previous publication and provide our web address.
