Celebrating its 50th year of continuous publication, The Iowa Review publishes the best short stories, poems, and essays being written today, often being pleased to introduce new writers. Once published in TIR, work has recently been selected for Best American Poetry, Best American Essays, Best American Nonrequired Reading, the Pushcart Prize, and the Robert J. Dau Short Story Prize.

The Iowa Review publishes three issues per year, in spring, fall, and winter. (Subscribe here!)

The magazine is indexed by EBSCOhost, JSTOR, and ProQuest.   

Our Paper 

The Iowa Review is printed on 60-lb. Natural Rolland Opaque paper that contains 30% post-consumer recycled fiber and is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. We mail each issue in an SFI-certified paper envelope rather than a plastic bag. Like most paperback books, our issues can be recycled in the "mixed paper" bins at most recycling centers—but we hope you'll keep or donate them!
