Middle House Review is a new online magazine that produces two issues a year. We also produce a print anthology of the year’s work.

Pay is $25 per acceptance.

We accept poetry, fiction, and flash fiction. We solicit cover art from artists. We do not accept cover art submissions.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted. Please withdraw your work from our queue the minute you accept publication elsewhere.


Here's the story, in Nevada there was a nuclear weapons test, specifically, the Annie test which dropped a bomb near three houses to see if houses could withstand a nuclear weapon. The first house was taken care of OK, nothing beyond the average of what is required, the last house wasn’t taken care of at all, and the middle house was pristine, thoughtful, and cared for beyond belief—the middle house was the only house left standing after the dust from the bomb settled. We are Middle House Review. We want your best work. Only submit work that you think will still be standing after the dust from the bomb of submissions has settled.
