We accept short fictional pieces of up to 2,500 words, for publication in our new triannual issues (see dates and themes below). Please submit only stories that appeal to our themes, as indicated below. NO novel excerpts. Please send only one story at a time, and wait for our response before submitting another. THANKS!

2017 THEMES:
  • April: DISARM, anti-gun anthology (submissions are now closed)
  • August: Summer's End – deadline June 30, 2017
  • December: Holiday Hell – deadline October 30, 2017

NOTE: Due to the volume of submissions we receive, we can no longer personally respond to all submissions. Therefore, we have divided our submissions into fee-free and fee-based, in order to streamline the process and continue to offer helpful criticism where possible. This form is for writers that DO NOT wish to receive brief feedback on their work.

For those that prefer to receive brief feedback, please use this link instead: http://blackheartmagazine.submishmash.com/submit/8908
