Editorial Focus

Founded in 1981, BOMB Magazine is dedicated to delivering the artist's voice. BOMB accepts submissions of previously unpublished poetry and short fiction through Submittable. 

Tips From the Editor

For this year's fiction contest, opening May 1, 2017, we are pleased to announce guest judge Paul La Farge. The winner will receive $1,000 and publication in BOMB Magazine’s literary supplement, First Proof. 

There are also two open reading periods for unsolicited submissions of fiction and poetry per year. Our next reading period opens on July 15, 2017.  If you'd like to be reminded of future submission opportunities, sign up for our Weekend Reads newsletter.
