Welcome to the Lascaux Review Submission Portal. If you have any problems write to Steve at lascauxreview at gmail dot com.

Choose Submit to The Lascaux Review to have your work considered for publication in the online journal. Payment is $100 for individual stories, poems, and essays. Please visit the Submissions Page for guidelines. Submissions are closed until 1 June. Sorry about the inconvenience; we've reached the monthly limit of free submissions allowed by Submittable. To avoid this inconvenience in the future we recommend you submit your work early in any given month.

Choose Lascaux Prize in Poetry to enter up to five poems in the annual poetry contest. Poems should be pasted into a single document. Winner receives $1000 and publication. Please visit the Contests Page for guidelines.

Should I leave my name off the submission?

That's up to you. It doesn't make any difference to us.

How long does it take to hear back from a regular submission?

We try to keep the response time under one month.

Where do you post contest winners?

You'll be notified one way or another via email; make sure Submittable is on your safe list. Winners and finalists are announced at lascauxreview.com/contest-results and elsewhere.

How long does it take to judge a contest?

That's a little trickier. Since all readers are volunteers, the job gets done when it gets done. Our goal is to wrap things up within three months of the closing date of a contest.

Any advice?

When submitting multiple poems or flash pieces, always present your best stuff first.

Ends on September 30, 2018$10.00
