The Kudzu Review is an undergraduate literary and arts journal. Starting in 2018, we are accepting undergraduate work from across the nation. The Kudzu Review is proud to make the transition to a national magazine and we invite undergraduates or students who have graduated within the current academic year (August-May) to submit their work to us. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please let us know as soon as possible if your work has been accepted elsewhere.
All written submissions should be in .doc or .docx format. Submit multiple pieces separately (multiple poems, flash fiction, etc). The file name should also be the piece’s title.
Our submissions are currently closed.
Submissions will open next during the Fall 2021 semester. Make sure to check back on our site around August and follow us on social media for the latest updates. Until then, look over our guidelines to prepare your work for submission. Thank you!
