Writer's Guidelines

General Inquiries: bfj@beloit.edu

Our reading period is from August 1st to December 1st only. We hope you will be kind enough to consider sending to us then.

We are open to literary fiction on any subject or theme. Stories may be from one to sixty pages in length, though longer pieces will have a more difficult time finding acceptance than shorter ones. We are always interested in new writers as well as established writers. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable. Please send us one story at a time and always include a self-addressed, stamped envelope (SASE) with mail submissions.

Due to the cost of maintaining our online submission platform, we have recently instated a service fee of $3 per submission. This is for online submissions only. Mail submissions will remain free.

Submit online here.
