Brick accepts unsolicited manuscripts of non-fiction only. Submissions must be previously unpublished. We accept simultaneous submissions, but please let us know immediately if your manuscript is accepted for publication elsewhere.
We urge you to familiarize yourself with the magazine and the kind of writing we publish before you submit to Brick. As we do not consider query letters, reading a few issues of the magazine is the best way to determine whether your work matches our style.
Please note that we do not accept fiction or poetry submissions at all, nor do we consider unsolicited artwork. The poetry and fiction that appear in Brick are solicited by the editorial board, as Brick is primarily a magazine of literary non-fiction. Fiction and poetry submissions will not be read.
While Brick does not set a word limit for submissions, we strongly suggest submissions do not exceed 5,000 words.We are please to accept submissions both by mail and online through Submittable. For online submissions, we charge a modest fee of $3.00 to cover our costs. We also offer the option to submit and subscribe. If you would prefer to send submission by mail, visit our submissions page for details.
Twice a year, for the months of December and June, we offer a free submissions period for Submittable submissions.
Response time for submissions is three to six months, for which we apologize in advance. We read everything we get, and carefully, but Brick is a small operation.
