Editorial Focus

Litbop is a literary journal containing short fiction, poetry, art, and photography. Currently published annually, it presents both new and previously published work.

Tips From the Editor

Like jazz, the writers, artists, and photographers in Litbop have put in the work, they’ve got the chops, and they’re ready to groove.

Short Fiction
Literary fiction, genre fiction, experimental fiction—we look for writing that engages the reader and has a point. Who we like: Dybek, Saunders, O’Connor. We’ll read short and long work not exceeding 7,000 words. Please, submit one piece at a time.

We are not looking for angst. Existential dread is okay if it’s not overstated. Extra points for poignant observations about humans’ relationship to the natural world. Who we like: Oliver, Ferlinghetti, Brautigan. Submit up to 5 poems with a maximum of 10 pages in one document.
