Editorial Focus

Black Denim Lit welcomes thoughtful writers, new and established. We are looking for fiction up to 7,500 words that has unique and lasting artistic merit. We may consider novelettes on a case by case basis. Why "Black Denim"...? In work clothes, black denim is a less pretentious than khaki and more understated than blue jeans. This typifies the tone of writing style that appeals to us: grounded, approachable and unassuming. Don't get us wrong--bring the grit, complexity and humor. Our tastes consider that "lasting artistic merit" can emerge from almost anywhere.

Tips From the Editor

We strongly favor "literary" style. Most "subjects" are OK, but avoid the over-used. This all should be: Prose (not poetry) Short story (under 7,500 words) Fiction (not letters, essays, journals or other non-fiction) Finished work (not writing exercise or workshop detritus or proposals) Manuscript Style
