We only accept original work. Please do not send essays previously published online or in print. Submissions are read year-round for publication triannually Winter–Spring-Fall.
DOUBLE SPACED submissions are easier to read and edit, but there is an exception for textual structure integral to meaning.
We are equally interested in reading both emerging and established writers. A cover letter is useful to acquaint the editors with the author behind the work. We understand and encourage simultaneous submissions, but please share your good news of acceptance elsewhere.

Breathe Free Press is a literary magazine of resistance and awareness dedicated to essayism as art.
Anne Carson, Brian Dillon, Virginia Woolf
Breathe Free Press only accepts submissions through Submittable. We are interested in art, not journalism—in literary observation funneled through social awareness in essayism and narratives that subvert genre constraints.
