Phoebe looks for reviews of literary prose and poetry titles which are recent, forthcoming, or deserving of a wider audience and additional consideration. We are especially interested in titles from independent or small presses.
Generally, the length of a review should be somewhere between 750 and 900 words, though should a review merit a longer length we’re not going to stop reading when we reach 900 words.
In general, when considering whether a review is right for Phoebe, we look at not only the book selected, but also author voice, clarity, and compelling argument which changes the way we think about a book.
