The next round of Flash 405 opens August 4–September 5, 2018!

Flash 405 is Exposition Review‘s multi-genre short form writing competition awarding cash prizes and publication. Our August guest judge is none other than Glen David Gold! We will announce the winners of our June 2018: “Nature” contest, judged by Art and Experimental editor Brianna J.L. Smyk, soon. In the meantime read the past winners, here.




Exposition Review is now CLOSED for submissions for our annual issue. But our 2018 issue, Vol. III, “Orbit” is now available online! It features new fiction, nonfiction, poetry, stage & screen, experimental narratives, and art & comics from new, emerging, and established writers. These works will  speak to the gravitational pull that draws us in but keeps us at arms length.

You can follow us on our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts and the Expo Blog for more updates on future publications, events, and submission opportunities..



Exposition Review Vol. I: Vol. II: “Surface”

Vol. II of Exposition Review is now available online!

“Surface” is all about perspective. Full of unique voices and blending genres, this issue is a close examination of the superficial and the sublime, of the hidden depths and delicate tensions inherent to the human experience. Together, the works presented in “Surface” take us through the looking glass, on a journey to unusual places and liminal spaces—a journey we’re looking forward to making again and again.

Vol. II: “Surface” features work by Aimee Bender, Robert Kerbeck, Maryann Aita, Rob Griffith, Arthur Keng, William Powhida, Shirin Abedinirad, GALAXYS FOR HIRE, Episode 1 of our new podcast Two Writers Walk Into a Bar with David Ulin, and so much more.

We celebrated the debut of “Surface” with an #ExpoPresents Launch Party & Reading at Chevalier’s Books on Larchmont on May 6, 2017!
