Thank you for thinking of The Dillydoun Review as a home for your work.


We do not charge a mandatory reading fee for submissions. However, this is a special option, completely voluntary. If you wish to fast track your submission this is an option for you. Paying this fee for a quick response does not guarantee that your work will be accepted for publication. But it is a kind, generous way to support the journal while allowing us to spend more time with your work. Feedback is not provided with this option.

If you are interested in Feedback, try our Feedback Only option ($25 /  1 - 3 day response time). Many writers are less interested in publication and more interested in feedback. With the Feedback Only option, you will have an opportunity to tell us if you are seeking publication or if you just want thoughtful, insightful feedback on how to improve your fiction and nonfiction (not available for poetry at this time).
