  • A maximum of seven pages is ideal for prose; however, ten pages is the absolute limit.

Submitters retain ownership of their copyright and are free to submit their work to other publications. Additionally, submitters are free to submit to the CRR works published elsewhere, provided that they retain ownership of the works and that contractual obligations do not prohibit such submissions.
  • Artists may elect to have their work published anonymously. To do so, artists must submit their work with their full names and select the “remain anonymous” option on our submission form. Works submitted in this manner will be credited to Anonymous in the publication.
  • The Case Reserve Review reserves the right to edit/alter any submission for content or so that it fits our publication’s requirements. Any and all alterations will be brought to the submitting artist’s attention via e-mail before they are finalised.
