BIPOC Literary Journal

Submissions for our BIPOC journal: Due Date May 15th

Our goal is to create opportunities for those who normally don’t get a voice to have their stories told. We are happy to announce we will be publishing a BIPOC literary journal featuring art, to be released next year.
We are currently accepting works of fiction from the BIPOC writing community to publish in our first issue. Send us your most polished short stories of speculative and realistic fiction, as well as creative nonfiction, flash fiction, poetry, and essays.
We welcome artwork submissions as well, including paintings, sculptures, and photography.

Submissions should be centered around the theme of identity. The last day to submit is May 15, 2024.

Often in mainstream media, POC-centered stories are focused on trauma or politics. While we are dedicated to spreading the importance of those themes, we would also like to encourage artists to tell their own stories outside of those expectations.
Short stories are limited to a 3k max word count and flash fiction are limited to a 1k max word count. Poetry is limited to 3 pages and essays are limited to a 1.5 word count.
For artwork submissions, please limit them to 3 pieces per artist.
Please include a brief bio with all submissions. There are no submission fees. If your piece is accepted, compensation is a contributor’s copy of the literary journal.
We do accept simultaneous submissions; however, we ask to be informed should your submission be accepted elsewhere.
