Please send all submissions to bopdeadcity AT gmail DOT com.

If you’d like a better idea of what kind of work we publish, please buy an issue. It’s only three bucks, come on now.

Reading Periods

We are open to submissions until January 1. Please submit only once per submission period. We are a quarterly publication with two month reading periods and then a month off.


We are seeking stories up to 3,000 words. Lean towards leaner. Please send only one story at a time, and only one per reading period.  If we’d like to see more, we’ll let you know. Erotica will not be accepted for publication (but will certainly be read). We don’t publish excerpts from novels or novellas, even if the excerpt is less than 3,000 words.


We are seeking poems of any length and in any form. You may submit up to five poems at once, but please only submit once per reading period. We are open to most subjects and forms, aside from those that try to be overtly oblique.


If you’re interested in providing cover art, that’s awesome. Send in up to five pieces (keeping in mind they’re going to be in black and white, and cheaply reproduced) in a common image format. In the subject of the email, please indicate it contains art.

Other Guidelines

Send all stories and poems in the body of an email, not as an attachment.   You may submit both five poems AND a piece of fiction, if you so choose. Also, include your name and a short biography. Please do not submit anything that has been published elsewhere, whether it be in print or on the internet. We accept simultaneous submissions, but please notify us if your piece is accepted elsewhere. We hold First North American Serial Rights, and all rights return to the author upon publication. We do ask that you mention us in reprints of pieces first published here. We could use the publicity.

All contributors will receive five bucks and a copy of the issue they appear in, even if more than one piece is accepted. Sorry, we’re broke.
