Submission call: Brokelyn wants your original poetry and short fiction

Hello, Brokesters! You may have noticed a regular literary series we’ve been running around these parts. And, we’d love to keep highlighting some amazing Brooklyn based writers and poets. That’s where you come in: we need your original poetry and short fiction.

Submission Guidelines

  • All writers must be Brooklyn residents (duh) – no exceptions
  • Please send all submissions to [email protected]
  • Submit 3-5 poems or 2 short stories, up to 2,000 words (flash is also accepted)
  • Use the subject line: [GENRE] SUBMISSION: YOUR NAME
  • All submissions should be pasted in the body of an email or sent as a .doc/docx or .pdf attachment
  • Include a third-person author biography with your work – we also encourage you to link us to your website or blog
  • We consider only unpublished work, although simultaneous submissions are acceptable – please let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere (and congrats!)
  • Copyrights revert back to writer upon publication


We look forward to reading your work!
