In continuous publication since 1996, Dunes Review is Northern Michigan’s premier independent literary journal. We publish two volumes of poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction per year. Work originally published in Dunes Review has appeared in The Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses series. Submissions are open to writers worldwide.

Dunes Review in the age of Covid.

We suspended our Traverse City, Michigan in-person launch readings during the Covid-19 pandemic. But we’ve entered the realm of online launch readings with issue 25.2. Check on our Facebook page for reading details. Our submissions calendar can be found on Submittable and our Facebook page provides up-to-date information on each issue. We’re still getting marvelous work to fill each volume. Submit! Read!
