Call for Submissions

The Massachusetts Review seeks submissions of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and hybrid work for a forthcoming issue spotlighting work by disabled and/or D/deaf artists. We as guest editors Khairani Barokka and Cyree Jarelle Johnson would love to solicit work from writers and poets who identify as D/deaf, disabled, chronically ill, mentally ill, and/or neurodiverse. This special issue is part of an effort to increase Massachusetts Review’s publication of artists from our communities going forward. Submissions of up to six poems (in one document), or prose of up to 7,000 words should be sent to, with the subject line: Special Issue: GENRE. We ask that you make one submission per genre at most. We do not accept previously published work. We welcome simultaneous submissions, but ask that you let us know if your work is accepted somewhere else.

Deadline: June 1, 2022
