Hawai`i Pacific Review​ seeks poetry, short fiction, and personal essays that speak with a powerful and unique voice. While we often feature work from and about Hawai`i and the Pacific, we are interested in high-quality literature from all regions and on all topics. Our pieces have been featured in the Best of the Net Anthology and the Pushcart Prize Anthology.

HPR is edited by the students and faculty at Hawai`i Pacific University. HPR acquires first serial internet rights to the pieces we publish. All other rights remain with the author.

Work by students and current employees of Hawai`i Pacific University is not considered.

All submissions must be made through our online submissions manager.

We normally accept submissions August through April. Due to abnormal circumstances, Hawai`i Pacific Review is currently closed to all submissions. We will open again on December 1st, 2019. Mahalo for your patience.
