Brevity submissions

brevitylogoIf you like to write short (which is not as easy as you might think), consider submitting to Brevity, an online creative nonfiction journal that the editors call “a small magazine with large ambitions.” They accept nonfiction essays of 750 words or fewer, as well as pieces on craft (writing) and nonfiction books. You bloggers could even shoot for a gig guest-writing on their blog.

I suspect competition is fierce for acceptance at Brevity, because last spring they had to close submissions to give their editors a break. But submissions are open again, and you can find their guidelines here. If you want to submit, I’d get it in before they’re overwhelmed again.

As always, do your research before you submit. Check out their recent issues and other essays on their website.

Oh, and one more thing: Brevity pays $45 for essays they accept and publish. And, as always, I’ll give credit in the form of points for submitting.
