SUBMISSIONS FOR ISSUE 12 OPEN ON AUGUST 1, 2021
Poetry – Submit 1-4 poems for consideration. Please submit all of the poems in a single document. Do not submit your work as a PDF—send us a Word document or Pages document, or something like that. Include a brief author bio as part of your cover letter.
Fiction & Nonfiction – Submit a work of fiction or nonfiction (4000-word max) for consideration. Excerpts from longer works or flash fiction pieces are welcome. Please submit each piece individually (i.e., one per document). Include a brief author bio as part of your cover letter.
“Prude Bruce Clause” – Please limit yourself to submitting work in just one (1) genre per reading period (i.e., either poetry or fiction/nonfiction).
For Our Loyal Veterans – If your work was featured in a previous issue of NBR, feel free to continually send us more pieces each submission cycle. Show us once again just how brilliant you are!
Withdrawals – To withdraw a submission at any time during our reading periods, please do so in our Submissions Manager. Simultaneous submissions are fine, yet kindly inform us ASAP if your work is accepted elsewhere.
No reading fees – This is a labor of love, folks! We don’t want your money, we want your words—so pony up!
