The May issue has been sent out and is ready for purchase!

Though it be but little, it is fierce! Welcome to Icarus Down Review, where we aim to encourage readers and writers to be proud of their work and their passions and to aim higher. Below are a few things to consider doing now that you’ve arrived:

Visiting Writers –

Submissions are currently open! Submission Guidelines are available for your convenience. Feel free to send any questions to the email provided.

Visiting Readers –

Consider donating using the link below!


Subscriptions to the monthly issues will be available in a couple of months. $5 a month will get you an ebook PDF of the work I’ve chosen to showcase in each issue.

You can also purchase individual issues if you don’t feel like signing up for a subscription. Single issues are $7.

All monetary profit – through donation, subscription, and individual purchase – goes toward paying for:

  • InDesign, to design the magazine
  • Submittable, to aid submissions
  • The site domain
  • BigCartel & PulleyApp, to host individual issue stock
  • Business cards & other advertising material

We hope to one day be able to pay our editorial staff, graphic designer, and contributors for their hard work. We also hope to offer physical print editions one day, but we can only get there with your help!

You can also like the Facebook page and follow the Twitter account as well as follow the blog itself for more information on submitting, subscribing, and other news.
