How Do I Share My Work?

The Revue Review is a literary journal and variety show that gives voice to generations that don’t have much of a formal platform for their work. It connects generations for artistic collaboration, fosters empathy, engenders a sense of purpose and belonging, and decreases feelings of isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic. It is a project dreamed up by arts educator, Jennifer Hill, and funded through a grant from South Central PaARTNERS.

The Revue Review includes the work of those 65 years old and up and those who are18 and under only. Four editors from each age group (4-18, and 65 and up) help manage outreach, submissions, and editorial tasks for the journal, and a separate panel of elders and youth manage tasks associated with accepting and compiling variety show acts. Editorial staff are also welcome and encouraged to create and submit work for both the journal and the variety show.

For the second and subsequent issues, the editorial board, with the assistance of Jennifer, will partner an elder and a youth to work together on a submission for the magazine. Issues and shows will always be open to “solo” submissions, but those after the first will always have at least a few collaborative creative efforts — poems, stories, musical acts, films, whatever the pair can create together.

The first issue will seek submissions on the general theme of “Belonging.” Literary magazine submissions may include (but not be limited to) the following:

  • Poems

  • Short stories (500 words or less)

  • Art (color or b&w)

  • Advice column

  • How to-article

  • Recipes

  • Top 10 lists

  • Music reviews

  • Meal reviews

  • Book reviews

  • Astrology

  • Memoir

  • Nature

  • Activism

  • History

  • Letters of Rant and Rave about something that really bothers you

  • Letters of Praise to something you really love

The first show will seek submissions on the general theme of “Belonging.” Variety show submissions may include (but not be limited to) the following:

  • Circus acts (juggling, hula hoop, clowning, acrobatics, puppetry, etc.)

  • Visual poems (filmed images with poetry spoken over them)

  • Dance

  • Theatre

  • Cooking show

  • How to videos

  • Comedy

  • Music

  • Spoken word poetry

  • Stop motion animations

  • Silent film

  • News reports

 

Deadline for submissions for the journal and variety show is February 1st 2021. The theme for this round is "Belonging."

 

For the second and subsequent issues, the editorial board with the assistance of Jennifer, will partner an elder and a youth to work together on a submission for the magazine. Issues and shows will always be open to “solo” submissions, but those after the first will always have at least a few collaborative creative efforts — poems, stories, musical acts, films, whatever the pair can create together.

Send Jennifer an email with your intent to submit (or your questions), and she'll reply with instructions.
