We're interested in thoughtful, engaging book reviews and book-related essays. Finished reviews and essays preferred. We consider pitches for reviews only. All work should be previously unpublished. This includes personal blogs.

Publishers seeking to submit finished books for review consideration should not use this Submittable account; instead, please send a description of the book to our Books Editor at abigail@therumpus.net. For poetry collections, please reach out to poetry@therumpus.net.

If you are submitting a poetry review, please do so in our Poetry Submittable category. Thank you!
