Submit

Submission to Blakelight is always open. We accept poetry and prose but we do ask that you follow the guidelines to ensure your work is read:

Poetry:

Please include a maximum of five submissions in one document.

The document should be a .docx file, with .pdf exceptions for submissions with special stylistic elements.

Please include a small bio for yourself (to be used in case of publication).

We ask that you limit your poetry submission to 200 lines.

 

Prose:

We accept fiction, non-fiction and creative non-fiction.

Please include a maximum of two submissions in one document.

The document should be a .docx file.

Please include a small bio for yourself (to be used in case of publication).

Please limit your word count to five thousand words.

Additionally:

You can submit to both the poetry and short story categories.

You can also include drawings with your work (attached as a separate .JPEG or .PNG file).

Do not submit previously published work.

Please inform us in case of your work’s publication else-where.

Unfortunately, at this time, we cannot discuss with writers why their work was not accepted.

We may, in some cases, work with the writer on editing his/her work for publication.

Rights to the work revert back to author after publication.
