Litbreak Magazine, launched in December of 2015, publishes a wide mix of literary fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, film and book reviews and other essays. We aim to present as diverse a mix as possible of geographic area, gender, ethnicity and social class. We also accept unpublished novel excerpts. All work submitted must be previously unpublished.

Fiction submissions may be of any length. We accept simultaneous submissions, but please let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere. All submitters must be at least 18 years of age. To cover our operating costs and keep Litbreak Magazine alive, we charge a $3 submission fee. Litbreak is a non-profit enterprise. Any funds we accrue over and above our costs will be redistributed to our contributors. In that regard, we hope to launch some contests in 2018.

While we aspire to present the most diverse of literary approaches possible, we insist upon a demonstration of craft. Pieces need to be as publish ready as possible.

We use Submittable. A brief biography and your photo is requested but not required. Publishing references of excessive length may be edited down if you are accepted by Litbreak. We do not allow editing after submission. If you wish to edit your document after submission, you can withdraw it and re-submit later.

This submissions policy is effective for all submissions received after 6/4/2017. All works accepted for publication previously are still covered by our older policy.
