Guidelines (be sure to read before submitting at bottom of this page)
  • General:
    • Important: due to the sensitive nature of Buddy, all authors/artists selected for publication will be required to sign a publication contract
    • if you wish to remain anonymous if we publish your work, please put the word “Anonymous” as the first word in the “Cover Letter” box, then add any Bio statement you would allow us to publish about you (i.e. “Anonymous.  I’m a lawyer in Arkansas”)
    • include a Bio of up to 100 words in the “Cover Letter”
    • previously unpublished work only
    • simultaneous submissions are fine; if your piece is accepted elsewhere or you want to withdraw it please let us know immediately via Submittable
    • one submission per person per genre per reading period
    • those selected for publication online will receive one free copy (we are unable to pay contributors at this time)
    • we aim to respond within three months (give or take)
    • it’s okay to be real and honest…it’s not okay to be overtly graphic just for the sake of being overtly graphic (Buddy Editors will decide what’s too graphic)
  • Poetry: up to 3 poems per submission, up to 2 pages each poem, 12 point, Times New Roman, single spaced, all in one file, if there is special line formatting send pdf & word doc of the work
