We are open again, and quite ‘themelessly’ … for Issue 04.
Bold + Italic is looking forward to submissions from you for our unthemed fourth issue, for which (this time again!) Kat Devitt reads fiction and non-fiction, and Lisa Stice reads poems alongside Jayant.
For the third issue, we’ve come up with 8 (+2) poets, 3 prose pieces, and a cover art and a couple featured poems (for which we might stalk you if we fall in love with your work, for later issues). So, very accordingly, please send us up to five of your best (unpublished) poems, two of your fiction and/or non-fiction, and three artworks. We will accept the submissions from each genre in a different MS Word/PDF file, to email@example.com (do prefer to copy the address to avoid any errors). A short bio would be loved — anything about you, if that makes sense.
Doubts? Discuss with us! We look forward to hearing from you.
We do accept simultaneous submissions, but we also expect correspondence from you once your piece(s) are accepted elsewhere (before we’ve sent in the word to you). Also, the rights revert back to you upon publication, but please make sure you allow us to be grateful to you — let us have the first publication credits (that helps spread the word).
For submitting to the our issues, title your submission with your last name, and genre. Also, please mention the title of your pieces in the email. Thank you!
We had selected for the first issue (from over 160 submissions), and are on our fourth issue; rest assured, you will be kept updated. Also, we are hoping to respond to every submission within 12 weeks (which we did in case of issue 3! — there were a few exceptions, we know).
Because we are very young now, we are not a paying market, but we will do our best to promote our artists every which way. Also, you could consider donating, so as to help us become a paying market soon.
Another question in the quirky head? Please use the contact form below.
We are looking for volunteers, wish to join us? Please use the contact form.
We read all forms of poetry but, as it is, our contributors wish to know, and ask, what sort our editors specifically deal with; so, we are including a list of authors our poetry editor has read lately.
