What is TBL exactly looking for in submissions?
Nothing & everything!
We love personal and out-of-this-world works that transport us into the unknown, we love scientific or any sort of sciency-related works (especially sciency poems) and we love the macabre, the courageous, the multi-layered voice.
When it comes to poetry: though you can submit any style & format, we tend to like poetry that unpacks itself slowly.
For non-fiction: besides the humor pieces (obviously), we’d love to give a platform for those who use writing as therapy, as solace, as the freedom it truly brings.
Not sure where your submission fits? No, problem, send it to us anyway!
The Bleeding Lion will also be featuring selected writers from each issue that are representative of our mission and purpose. Stay tuned for more!
