Submitting to Terroir Review

Terroir Review is a journal about nature, culture, food, and place. Part food magazine, part literary journal, we aim to tackle important questions about food and its role in culture. Read more about Terroir, including this F.A.Q.

Terroir accepts submissions of previously unpublished writing that illuminates why food matters. We’re particularly interested in personal narratives that explore the author’s perspective on terroir, place, and the cycles of physical and cultural nourishment. Photo essays and poetry are also considered.

We read on a quarterly basis, with submissions due on the 21st of March, June, September, and December. We aren’t accepting pitches at this time; only completed manuscripts. We do allow simultaneous submissions, but request that you let us know promptly if your work is accepted elsewhere. We pay for all published work and retain exclusive rights for one year, after which the author is free to publish elsewhere provided Terroir is cited as first publication.

Please use our contact form to submit your manuscript, pasting the text of your submission into the message body. We will respond promptly.

We look forward to reading.
