Ricochet Review Poetry Journal

There are presently no open calls for submissions.



Ricochet Review welcomes national and international submissions from high school students, college students, and non-students who wish to have their voices heard.

Our issues are themed. The theme for the 2019 issue, Volume 8, will be "Somewhere: Poetry of Place." These poems may reference a literal or figurative place eliciting an emotional connection. We will be accepting verse forms (couplet, ode, haiku, limerick, etc.) and free verse poetry (flash fiction, epistolary, lyric essay, flash nonfiction, and flash poetic memoir) that fall within our theme. 

Reading Period Begins September 1st, 2019.

Submissions close on December 31st, 2019.
