The New Submission Period Has Begun

by Barbara Westwood Diehl

We are now open for our current reading period, February 1 through May 31. So send us your best!

If you still have work in the system from our last submission period, know that we haven't forgotten you. We had a very large submissions to read, but we're working hard to catch up.

We're reading for the spring issue now (no theme), and you can also submit to our summer contest ("Crime" theme). As always, we will publish non-themed work in the summer issue, as well.

All contributors to the winter issue, not just the contest winners, received a small payment--a dream come true for us. We hope to be able to continue compensating writers for their work, and we can do this with your support. All profits (after paying operating costs) from sales of the print book and contributions to the "Pay the Writers. Get Some Writing Ideas for Yourself" category go to paying our contributors. All BR staff are volunteers. We don't get a dime. We must really love doing this.

We look forward to reading your work!
