Please note the following guidelines:

  1. Poetry – Please submit 1-4 poems for consideration. Poems should be uploaded via the Submissions Manager (link below) in .PDF, .doc, or .docx format. For the convenience of the editors, PLEASE SUBMIT EACH POEM INDIVIDUALLY (i.e. only one poem per document). If multiple pieces are contained in one document, your submission will not be considered. Seriously.
  2. Fiction & Nonfiction – Please submit a short work of fiction or nonfiction (3000 word maximum) for consideration. Excerpts from longer works are perfectly acceptable. We will definitely accept flash fiction as well. Prose pieces should be uploaded via the Submissions Manager (link below) in .PDF, .doc, or .docx format.  For the convenience of the editors, PLEASE SUBMIT EACH STORY INDIVIDUALLY. If multiple pieces are contained in one document, your submission will not be considered. Fo realz.
  3. “The Prude Bruce Clause” – For the convenience of the editors, please limit yourself to one, and only one, of the genres listed above (i.e., poetry, fiction, or nonfiction). We do accept submissions from writers who have been published in NBR previously (see below), so choose one genre this time and the other next time!
  4. For the Veterans – If your work was featured in a previous issue of NBR, feel free to submit more work to us, but please understand that priority will be given to fresh, new writers. On the other hand, if you’re just plain brilliant (again), you can expect us to agonize (again) over your work along with the rest of the noobz.
