Submissions accepted year-round.
bioStories is an online literary magazine of creative nonfiction focused on biography and autobiography. We publish weekly “feature essays”, semi-annual digital issues, and digital and print thematic anthologies. We read submissions year-round for essays keeping with our tradition of “sharing the extraordinary in ordinary lives,” and run two annual thematic contests.
Writers are encouraged to visit the website to gain a full sense of our reading tastes and literary mission of presenting exceptional writers exploring the subtleties of the lives we might otherwise overlook. Full submission guidelines are available here.
