Besides recognizing writers without published books, Piece Meal is a great opportunity for writers to practice writing reviews and get their reviews published
Simply find a piece in a recent literary or genre magazine (published within the last six months) and write a review. We ask that none of our reviewers be on the editorial board or official “readers” for the literary magazine they review.
Each review should be a minimum of 500 words. There is no maximum length.
Please read the reviews on the site to get an idea of the scope and concept we’re looking for. Generally, we want reviews to give serious consideration to short works published in literary magazines that rarely receive a critical study.
Feel free to relate any sociological, historical, psychological or scatological references you think will help your review of the work.
We are also open to short work comparisons from the same magazine, as well as hearing review ideas you have in mind that do not fit the criteria above. We’re generally open-minded gents!
Each reviewer should be open to editorial comments.
We will do our best to respond as soon as we can. Feel free to email with questions/ queries.
To submit your literary review of a short story, poem(s), creative nonfiction or other media that can be found in or on print and online literary magazines, excluding artwork, video or film, send an email to piecemealreviews (@) gmail (dot) com.
