The Apple Valley Review: A Journal of Contemporary Literature is currently accepting submissions for its premier issue. This online journal is published twice annually, once in Spring and once in Fall. Each issue features a selection of beautifully crafted poetry, short fiction, and essays. We prefer work that has both mainstream and literary appeal. All work must be original, previously unpublished, and in English. Please do not submit genre fiction, explicit work, or anything particularly violent or depressing. Additional information is available on our website: www.applevalleyreview.com.
