We hope you’re all staying safe, staying in and washing your hands before you pick up your pens!
During these strange times we’re going to be accepting online submissions for Issue 46. We looked into various submission forms but they were either too expensive for us or too clunky to use so we’ve kept it simple and created a separate submission email address.
We’ll be accepting work in the submission window 5th–14th May 2020 and are really looking forward to reading your work. We’ve purposefully kept the window short so that we can manage the submissions. We’re afraid if you’ve sent work outside of these dates we won’t be able to read it and your email will remain unopened, but you are very welcome to re-submit when we open up our next online submission window.
• Please try to read a copy of the magazine before you submit. You can download a digital copy of our current issue at 0s & 1s here.
We welcome submissions of unpublished, original work in the following categories:
Poetry: 1 – 4 poems
Literary short fiction: 1 story up to 2000 words (double-line spaced)
To submit your work online or by post click here to visit our submissions page and read our guidelines.
If you like what we do at Brittle Star, you might think about buying us a coffee at ko-fi.com/brittlestar to help us keep going. Everyone who buys us a coffee will receive a free e-mag pdf of issue 42 (our last competition issue including judges’ reports from Pascale Petit and Nicholas Royle).
Brittle Star is reader & subscriber supported.
