From the Virginia Quarterly Review guidelines:

Editorial Philosophy
VQR strives to publish the best writing we can find. While we have a long history of publishing accomplished and award-winning authors, we also seek and support emerging writers. A look at one of our latest issues will show you the diversity of voices we publish.

Poetry: All types and length.
Short Fiction: Length is from 3,500–8,000 words. We are generally not interested in genre fiction (such as romance, science fiction, or fantasy).
Nonfiction: Length is 3,500–9,000 words. We publish literary, art, and cultural criticism; reportage; historical and political analysis; and travel essays. We publish few author interviews or memoirs. In general, we are looking for nonfiction that looks out on the world, rather than within the self.
