The Brooklyn Quarterly is accepting fiction submissions of varying lengths (word limit 5,000 words—but the shorter, the better) on a rolling and continuous basis. We like stories that are self-contained, but also consider excerpts from recently published or forthcoming book-length works as long as the piece works without additional context. Please review our previous publications to get a feel of what we are looking for, but consider that the fiction that is best for TBQ takes into account an environment larger than the piece creates in and of itself, acknowledging the presence of the world at large.

Please submit your work in .doc or .pdf format. If this is part of a larger work, let us know in the cover letter field, along with your bio and any other relevant information.

If you have any trouble using this online system, please email
