We publish our electronic magazine in March and September. Deadlines are February 15 and August 15 for inclusion in the next issue.

Established in 2013, East Jasmine Review is an electronic literary magazine that publishes quality fiction, nonfiction, poetry, articles and reviews. Our first goal is to publish diverse voices that may not have mainstream access or traditional access to publishing. This includes but is not limited to LGBTQIA, ethnic minorities, women, lower socio-economic status, those who are older or younger, religious minorities, and non-American persons. We are looking to build an inclusive online community and auidence for our voices. Our second goal is to earn enough revenue to pay for 1) web hosting fees, 2) promotional material, and 3) small publication payments to authors. Our third goal is move into online and print publication in addition to electronic.

We are primarily looking for unpublished works, though we may consider previously published works (please have the rights to re-publish this, if you are not sure, contact the publisher). By submitting, you agree to give us the First Electronic Rights to print this as an online serial magazine. All rights revert to the author upon publication.

Sexual Assault Awareness Month may have come to an end, but the editors of The East Jasmine Review strongly believe in keeping the conversation going year-round. Being a literary magazine that prides itself on representing diverse voices, we are excited to announce our first Tell Me More contest of “Me Too” stories. We are asking for submissions encompassing the spectrum of sexual assault, including not only of the act itself, but also of the healing process and aftermath of such an event. Submissions in fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry will be open from May 1st until June 24th. Winners will be published in an electronic and print version of our inaugural anthology series. We will not accept nor read submissions where sexual assault is treated as a “joke” or from the perpetrators point of view.
