Who May Submit
Anyone may submit. The journal encourages as wide a submission range as possible, and we look for the “best work” in a variety of genres. Copyright remains in the writers’ or artists’ names. No money is paid for submissions.
The deadline for the year's publication is November 8; however, The Mayo Review accepts submissions year round. Any submissions received after the deadline will be considered for the next year's journal.
The Editorial Board consists of A&M–Commerce students, advised by faculty of the Department of Literature and Languages. Any A&M–Commerce student, graduate or undergraduate, full or part time, may volunteer to serve as a Student Reader and/or as a member of the Editorial Board for a semester or an academic year. Students are not required to be English majors. The main duties of the Editorial Board consist of: reading submissions or reviewing artwork in the blind review process, making the final selections for publication, preparing the journal for printing, and distributing the journal.
Blind Review Process
The Mayo Review has a firm policy of “blind reading” of submissions for acceptance. The “blind reading process” is administered by the advisor(s) and editor. Names of submitting writers or artists should not appear on submissions. A variety of readers reads or reviews and ranks the work in a process lasting several weeks, including both individual and group reading and reviewing.
We are interested in the best unpublished work in a variety of genres. Please submit no more than five pieces total for consideration. This must be work that has not been published in print or online, including blog posts. Submit your work electronically, following the specific guidelines for the genre.
Please submit the following:
