Bronzeville Books is proud to introduce its online magazine, the Bronzeville Bee.
At this time, The Bronzeville Bee is open to short fiction submissions.
We consider stories up to 3,000 words in length. Preferred genres include crime, sci fi, fantasy, horror and YA.
Payment is 5 cent per word U.S. for first Worldwide English publication rights for short stories.
**We are not currently considering reprints. Stories must not have been previously published online in any form, via website, blog, etc.
Simultaneous submissions are allowed; however, we ask that you inform us immediately if you place your story elsewhere.
Multiple submissions are NOT accepted.
Stories that are rejected cannot be resubmitted unless the writer is invited to resubmit.
Please use the formatting guidelines found here with one note: no underlining. If you intend for any part of the text to be in italics, put it in italics. The guidelines here are pretty standard: common font such as Times New Roman, 12 pt., 1-inch margins, first line of each paragraph indented 0.5 inches (not manually with spaces but by first line indent settings).
Submissions should be sent with the words 'Short Fiction Submission - Magazine' in the subject line. The story should be sent as an attached Word document. We will not read any works sent as a PDF. Do not send works in RTF, either; if the only way the work can be read is by downloading it to our computers we will not read it.
Absolutely no sex with minors or animals.
The Bronzeville Bee will also be publishing non-fiction articles. The Bee will consider pitches from diverse writers who will write about arts, culture & entertainment by diverse artists. Information requests and pitches can be sent to Sandra Ruttan via email.
Please put ‘non-fiction article information’ or ‘non-fiction article pitch’ in the subject line and allow up to 2 weeks for a response. Our payment rate is 10 cents U.S. per word. Article lengths are subject to contract when negotiated. No writer is guaranteed publication until paperwork signed by both writer and editor is complete.
Refer to the site and published articles to ensure your pitch is suitable.
Questions and submissions should be directed to Sandra Ruttan: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please reference Bronzeville Bee Pitch or Question in the subject line of your email.
