Call For Submissions


Brink is open for Fiction, Nonfiction, and Poetry submissions of any length engaging the theme TROUBLE.

What does it mean to be on the brink of trouble? Can you sense when you are there? What lets you know you are safe and out of reach? What kept you from falling in that one time you were sure you would? What changes once you pass through it? When did you watch someone else teeter on its edge?

We are interested in work that focuses on the edge, the brink, of trouble. What surrounds trouble? What are the images, sounds, ideas, people, movements, and opportunities? Those are the stories we want to hear.


Brink is also open for submissions in the Evocations category. Evocations are hybrid categories that may include work that is of any cross-genre nature; work that includes visual components; work that represents a series or collection.


We consider only previously unpublished work.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted; please notify us immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere.

We pay $25/poem; $50/work less than 1500 words; $50/art 1-3 Images; $100/art 4+ Images; $100/work above 1501 words. Contributors will receive one copy of the issue in which their work appears.
