Silk Road Review: A Literary Crossroads is accepting general submissions for fiction, nonfiction, translations, essays, and poetry! Our magazine features pieces that explore diversity, migration, immigration, and diaspora. Silk Road publishes pieces showcasing the collision of cultures, social transformations, and that explore human dynamics.

Silk Road accepts submissions from everyone, from people with no previous published works to experienced writers. You may submit multiple pieces at a time but only one piece of work per genre. However, previously published works, even self-published or on the web, will not be considered and if your work is accepted elsewhere, please it timely. All submissions must have the author’s name, address, email address, and phone number on the front page. Submissions may be submitted via Submittable as a .doc file in 12 point Times New Roman font, double-spaced with one inch margins and with each page numbered. Please wait six months before asking about your submission.

We’re all excited to read the latest pieces of work!
