Blotterature accepts a wide variety of prose, poetry, and artwork. We seek the nontraditional mixed with craft, detail, and process. Well-developed with an edge. Experimental but not aimless. Something with political intentions or just there to entertain. Thought-out. Thrilling. Intelligent.
Submissions are now closed for the summer issue.
Winter issue: August 1 – October 31
Summer issue: February 1 – May 31
Submissions for 5o Words for $50 Contest are ongoing.
Now accepting submissions for Blot Lit Reviews.
Simultaneous submissions welcomed, but you must inform us right away if the piece is accepted elsewhere. We do not accept any previously published material.
Unfortunately, we are unable to pay the writers we accept at this time. We understand you work hard and are dedicated to what you do, and we value that and appreciate you giving us a chance to publish your work. What we can offer is publicity. We will do whatever we have to in order to get your words to a wide audience (including but not limited to: radio shows, our social networking sites, editor Tim Murray standing on a street corner). Also, we are proud to promote writers, writers’ organizations, and other publications, so if you have been published through us and want to send us a link to promote something you have achieved or involved in, we will be more than happy to do so. And thanks for your understanding.
Blotterature claims First North American Rights. All rights revert to the writer after publication, but we then ask that we are acknowledged upon future publication of the same piece/s.
