“A Young Girl Reading,” oil on canvas, by Jean-Honoré Fragonard, 1776.

The Lascaux Review accepts stories, poems, and essays of literary quality. Pieces that are comprehensible and that appeal to a broad audience are most likely to be accepted. We consider previously published material and we assume all submissions are simultaneous.

Submit as many as five poems at a time; please patch them into one document. Prose pieces should be no longer than 10,000 words. There is no submission fee. Please wait until you have heard back from one submission before sending another.

Submissions are read year round. Accepted pieces are published on a rolling basis.

The review accepts work for appearance and archiving on its website, and for one additional appearance in an anthology. All rights are retained by contributors at all times. The following link will take you to our online submissions form at Submittable:


Payment is $100 per published story, poem (or group of poems), and essay. We pay $250 to winners of very short (250-word) fiction contests and $1,000 to winners of flash (1000-word) fiction, short fiction, and poetry contests. $1,000 prizes are also awarded annually to novels and poetry collections. See the Contests page for more information.
