Submission Guidelines:

  • We welcome submissions both by mail and online through Submittable.
  • Brick is open for submissions twice a year: from September 1 to October 31, and from March 1 to April 30. For 2018, we are also accepting submissions during the month of June. Mailed submissions that come to us postmarked outside these dates will not be read or returned.
  • We consider only finished, polished non-fiction submissions.
  • Submissions must be previously unpublished.
  • We will read simultaneous submissions, but please let us know as soon as your manuscript is accepted for publication elsewhere.
  • Please only submit one piece at a time. Please wait for our response before sending us other work to consider. Multiple submissions will be automatically rejected
  • While Brick does not set a word limit, we tend towards a range of 1,000–5,000 words. Of course, rules like this were made to be broken. Whatever the length, the piece must be exemplary.
  • Please allow up to six months for us to respond to your submission.
