Submission Guidelines

Closed to Submissions During August and September.
Writers: please note that we are currently closed to submissions. We will reopen on October 1st.  We look forward to reading your work after this date.

How to submit your work

1. We will only accept electronic submissions.
To submit your work:

2. Your email subject line should indicate the genre (poetry, fiction, nonfiction), your last name, and the number of pieces submitted. (ex. Subject: Poetry Jones Three)

3. Include writer contact info and a brief bio on a cover page.

4. Simultaneous submissions are ok, as long as you let us know right away if your work has been accepted elsewhere.

5. Please don’t send us previously published work.

6. 2BR acquires first-time North American rights. After publication, rights revert to the author and may be reprinted as long as appropriate acknowledgment to 2BR is made. Payment is in copies.

7. We are closed to submissions in August and September. Bear with us: we are a start-up and will be shaped by the work we receive. We intend to take time reading your work and might hold onto it for a bit. We will do all we can to make timely decisions but all of us have full-time academic jobs and are likely to be more measured than hurried in order to avoid being careless. We will get back to you.

8. Like our mothers always told us, “no means no”…. but only for six months. Some of our moms also told us to try and try again. Please do try.
