Black Sun Lit is open for submissions year-round, will read only unpublished manuscripts, takes into consideration unsolicited material and accepts multiple submissions in the limit of two pieces of prose, five poems/pieces of verse and two pieces of non-fiction. We accept simultaneous submissions in the good faith that the writer notifies us when his or her work has been accepted elsewhere. Larger manuscripts, such as full-length novels, collections of short stories, books of verse, etc., will also be considered.
Black Sun Lit does not have a limit or minimum in regards to length; however, shorter work will be considered for Vestiges, our print journal, or online publication through our website. We are also open to works of drama and enjoy debate on any artistic endeavor as it relates to our mission statement. Please allow up to three to five months for a response.
Please also be advised that we require every writer to submit a brief cover letter, which may include:
– Genesis of the work
– Technical details
– Contact information
– Author biography (optional)
– Where previous work has appeared (optional)
– Forthcoming work to be published (optional)
