Editorial Focus

Broad Street is an interdisciplinary non-profit magazine featuring the very best that creative non-fiction has to offer in an ever-expanding set of subgenres. At Broad Street, we are creating an intersection where truth-telling prose, poetry, and artwork can converge to be enjoyed by readers and writers deeply engaged with the culture, though not necessarily through an academic lens. Your smart best friend should enjoy Broad Street as much as your theory-steeped professorial colleagues.

Tips From the Editor

Dare to push yourself in new ways. We want beautifully crafted, previously unpublished non-fiction narratives: reflective essays, memoirs, experimental truth-telling, poetry, prose poetry, photo essays, original artwork, and interviews. No academic pomposity, please! Think NPR. Think New Yorker. Think Broad Street.
Each issue has a theme broadly applied; we appreciate fresh approaches. Follow directions on our online submission engine. Images should be sent in low resolution (100-300 dpi); we will request a higher resolution if the image is accepted.
We give each piece painstaking editorial attention that rivals that of any book publisher. All of our contributors are stars in our eyes.
