Submission Guidelines


Submissions are currently closed. Please check back in August 2024.

INFORMATION FOR CONTRIBUTORS
Litbop is published once a year both as a Kindle ebook and as a print-on-demand paperback.
There is currently no money to pay contributors. If your work is accepted, you will receive a PDF copy of the issue in which it appears.
There is no fee to submit, however tips to help with production costs are gratefully accepted through our submission manager DUOSUMA.
Our response time is currently up in the air. We’ll try to be quick, but we’re a fledgling publication, so be patient.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
All submissions must be blind. We don’t want to know your name until after we’ve read your work.
We do consider previously published work.
We consider simultaneous submissions, but please notify us immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere. If we accept your piece, withdraw it from consideration elsewhere.

SHORT STORIES AND SHORT-SHORTS
Literary fiction, genre fiction, experimental fiction—we look for writing that engages the reader and has a point.
Who we like—Dybek, Saunders, O’Connor
We’ll read short and long work not exceeding 7,000 words. Please, submit one piece at a time.

POETRY
We are not looking for angst. Existential dread is okay if it’s not overstated.
Extra points for poignant observations about humans’ relationship to the natural world.
Who we like—Oliver, Ferlinghetti, Brautigan.
Submit up to 5 poems with a maximum of 10 pages in one document.
