Mangrove considers creative nonfiction essays, memoirs, book reviews and criticism, interviews, and travel writing for publication. We also welcome original translations provided you have permission from the author. Nonfiction submissions should be no more than 15 pages. Book reviews should be no more than 500 words.

Book reviews and criticism relevant to the University of Miami (for instance on books written by UM alumni) are encouraged, though not required.
Book reviews and criticism should be written on recent publications.
Travel writing should include a narrative voice, or an otherwise creative angle.
Interviewees should be affiliated with the arts—writing, film, art, etc.—and interviews should have a coherent, captivating purpose. Again, interviews relevant to the University of Miami are encouraged.
Mangrove considers excerpts from book-length nonfiction provided they are self-contained and the journal receives first North American publishing rights to the content in that excerpt.
