Editorial Focus

Founded in 1981, BOMB Magazine is dedicated to delivering the artist's voice. We're looking for weird, unexpected, and exciting work. BOMB accepts submissions of previously unpublished poetry and short fiction through Submittable. 

Tips From the Editor

BOMB hosts an annual literary contest, alternating between fiction and poetry each year, with a distinguished guest judge. There are also two open reading periods for unsolicited submissions of fiction and poetry per year. Our next reading period opens on December 1, 2017. 

Before submitting, we encourage you to read the magazine, online and in print, to acquaint yourself with the material we have published. Subscriptions to BOMB are available here.
