Call For Submissions

Submissions  Thank you for your interest in Bridge, Chicago’s independent, intersectional art and culture journal. We welcome submissions in poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, visual art, dance, architecture, politics, and hybrid work from established as well as emerging writers and artists. We are especially interested in work that embraces the world and continues, however subtly, the ongoing global conversation about culture and society that Bridge has championed from its beginning in 1999. We also accept reviews and interviews, which we publish throughout the year.

How to Submit: We accept all submissions through Submittable, an online submissions system. There is no charge to create a Submittable account, but please note that we do charge a small reading fee to help cover the costs of the software and some operating expenses. We do not accept mailed or emailed submissions. As a periodical, we publish when we have sufficient material to justify it, and accept submissions year-round.

The deadline for submissions to be considered for the next volume of Bridge (V24 N1) is 11:59pm on October 1, 2023. This is for our regular “annual” journal, organized by members of the Bridge artistic collective, who also serve as section editors. Magazine submissions are ongoing throughout the submission period.

For Visual Art & Visual Poetry submissions, please include with your cover letter an itemized list of submissions and an explanation of the included content. ALL submissions must be print quality images, minimum 300 dpi, minimum 4×5″, and must include all relevant caption information, including: artist name, year, materials, and all relevant credits for those pictured, as well as any photographer credit. Please also indicate if the work has been shown in public previously.

For Design submissions, please include in your cover letter the title and your design submission, OR a summary of the idea (maximum 300 words), and any other relevant information, including a short bio. Please note that for any essays or other writing requiring permissions to produce or reproduce any images or supporting materials are entirely the responsibility of the author. Confirmation of permissions must also be provided prior to publication.

Please also include a mailing address and 250-word or less bio with your submission.

Please refer to our submissions guidelines before submitting your work. We accept simultaneous submissions. You can withdraw or edit your submission at anytime by logging into your account. To learn more about Bridge and our mission as a periodical, please refer to our About Us page.
