Bicoastal Review aims to build community with our readers and contributors. In addition to original works (particularly on themes of East Coast/West Coast cities, peoples, cultures, and ecologies), we welcome ekphrastic writing that imitates, borrows from, challenges, or is otherwise in conversation with work we have previously published. Please note in your submission if you are referencing a previously published piece. Writers from anywhere in the world are encouraged to submit to us. 

We are also a print journal. Purchase print copies in our Submittable.

Poetry: 5 poems max. Please separate poems by page. Titles preferred.

Book reviews, critiques, thinkpieces, essays, and other nonfiction: 

2,000 words max. Please query us via email if longer.

Photography, art: Submit up to 10 photos or works of art using the highest image/file quality possible.

Note: Hybrid, experimental, or cross-genre work is welcome. We do not accept AI-generated text/images. We do not accept writing that espouses racism, misogyny, ableism, ageism, homophobia, xenophobia, etc.

We accept simultaneous submissions, but please notify us if your work is accepted elsewhere. We do not accept reprints. Upon acceptance with us, please withdraw your work from other consideration. Prior contributors should wait six months to submit again.
