Submissions for NBR are currently closed. We’re compiling Issue 11, which we’ll release in March-April 2021. Our guidelines:
Poetry – Submit 1-4 poems for consideration. Please submit each poem individually (i.e., one per document). 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.
