Boston Literary Magazine is dedicated to helping writers get published. We don't accept every submission we receive, but we offer feedback and encouragement, and you are always welcome to re-submit material after you've refined it.
Tips From the Editor
We publish thoughtfully-crafted fiction that incorporates traditional elements of setting, characters, conflict, and a satisfying resolution. If your ending can surprise us, even better! Please include material in the body of your e-mail with "Submission" and your name as the subject line, and send no more than three submissions at a time. Please note: WE DO NOT OPEN ATTACHMENTS. WE DO NOT PUBLISH ANYTHING THAT ISN'T IN OUR MOTHER TONGUE. IF YOU SEND US SOMETHING AND WE WRITE BACK AND YOUR SERVER TELLS US WE HAVE TO REGISTER BEFORE YOU CAN ACCEPT OUR E MAIL, WE WON'T DO IT. WE DON'T EVER ACCEPT ANYTHING TITLED "UNTITLED."
