The Penmen Review is Southern New Hampshire University’s online journal for creative writers, featuring resource articles, spotlight interviews and writing in all genres, selected by our editorial board from submitted work.
The Penmen Review accepts submissions 12 times a year and new submission cycles begin on the first day of each month. Simultaneous submissions are accepted and writers retain all rights to their work. There are no submission fees for writers for submissions nor are fees paid. Complete submission information may be found here.
Southern New Hampshire University’s College of Online and Continuing Education held its first Fall Fiction Short Story Competition in late 2015, garnering more than 550 submissions. The top three prize winners, all SNHU writing students, were awarded academic scholarships and writing-related prize packages. Read the top three stories here: “Genesis” by Syche Phillips, “Goldfish God” by Michele Meehan and “St. Louis” by Virginia Spotts.
“The Penmen Review Anthology, Volume 1,” featuring some of the best writing of 2013 published work, is available to purchase as an e-book or trade paperback.
