Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Vincent Brothers Publishing’s mission is to promote an appreciation for the literary arts of poetry, short fiction, essays, and creative nonfiction. Our editorial staff aims to broaden the audience for contemporary creative writing and visual graphic design via the publication of four electronic issues of “The Vincent Brothers Review” on our website and two print issues per year. Vincent Brothers Publishing is also planning to publish an annual poetry chapbook selected from the entries to our annual poetry contest/Deanna Pickard memorial prize for women over 50 who haven’t yet published a book of poetry.

Writers should send work that they’d be proud to see in print or online. The best way to discover what kind of manuscripts we seek is to read at least a couple of back issues of “TVBR!” Our most recent print issue (#23: Taking Flight) is $11.50 each; saddle-stitched back issues are $5.00 each; perfect-bound back issues are $6.50. We are still considering what the cost will be for a year’s subscription, as well as how many issues that will include. This suggestion goes beyond our desire to sell back issues. It’s vital for writers seeking publication to support and read their peers’ work, as well as the work of the magazines they are approaching for possible publication. Great writers are always great readers, too. They should set high reading standards in addition to high writing standards. Writers planning to market their work must be aware of what that market is publishing. Researching online literary publications, as well as the litmag sections of libraries and bookstores, is vital. Once writers have found a few magazines they enjoy reading, they should subscribe to them and study the material they feature. The habit of reading contemporary litmags and eMags will enhance and broaden an appreciation of literature, as well as assist writers in placing their work. We judge material solely on the words chosen, the style in which those words are used, and the images, ideas, and characters those words convey. The choice of the typeface used by an author is not a factor in our consideration; however, it’s obviously more manageable for us to read manuscripts presented in a clear, legible manner. “TVBR” publishes theme issues. Stay tuned and check back here for further deadlines and contests, including information about our Deanna Pickard Memorial Prize, a poetry chapbook contest for women over 50 who have not yet published a chapbook. Writers are sent to a PayPal paywall to submit their work. The submission fee is similar to what you pay in postage for surface mail submissions. Submission fees are used to cover production costs, including pay for writers and website maintenance.
