From the Indiana Review guidelines:

Indiana Review is published biannually in May and December.

IR publishes about 6-10 stories, 40-60 pages of poetry, 2-4 nonfiction pieces per issue, as well as occasional art inserts and special folios. We look for poems, stories, and nonfiction that are well-crafted and lively, have an intelligent sense of form and language, assume a degree of risk, and have consequence beyond the world of their speakers or narrators. At this time we are not accepting unsolicited book reviews.

There is a $3.00 reading fee for all General Submissions.
