Barn Owl Review is an independent literary magazine dedicated to publishing the highest quality poetry from both emerging and established writers. We are a handsomely designed print journal of writing that takes risks while still connecting with readers. The journal is published in Akron, Ohio, and welcomes submissions from both near and far.

Please note that we accept submissions via Submittable only; we are unable to consider paper submissions.
