Want to submit to Drizzle?

We are looking for:

Book reviews:

  • of books by authors that identify as queer, female, people of color, differently abled, etc. or are works in translation
  • previously unpublished
  • between 500-1000 words
  • books may be in any genre, and we particularly enjoy captivating non-fiction, graphic novels, or hybrid works


  • on subjects relating to literature, diversity & translation (if you have a piece you think may work for Drizzle that doesn’t fall into these categories, feel free to send us your essay with a sentence or two on why you feel it fits our mission)
  • between 1000-3000 words
  • Surprise us — we are looking for essays that captivate, provide insight, introduce up-and-coming authors or take a look at an old work in a new way. We want to hear your voice. If it’s exciting to you, it will likely be exciting to us as well.


  • from under-represented authors, translators, or artists with a literary flair
  • between 750-1500 words (if you have an audio file, feel free to send that alongside the transcribed interview)
  • include links to a selection of published works from the featured author/artist/translator


To submit: please email drizzlereview[at]gmail[dot]com and include a brief bio (1-3 sentences). We hope to review your submissions in less than 30 days. If we haven’t read and responded to your submission after that time, please send a follow-up query.

To remain unbiased, we prefer our reviewers and authors remain strangers until after the review has been published.  Please let us know if you have a connection to the author that would hinder your ability to give an unbiased review of the work.

At this time, we are not able to pay reviewers for their contribution, but will happily promote their work on social media.


Do you have a book we should be reading?

Please contact with your review request.

Please include the name of the book, the author, publication date, and a brief description of how the book fits our requirements (i.e. a work in translation, written by queer authors, women, differently abled people, POC, etc).
