The Bangalore Review 21

About

The Bangalore Review is an online magazine aimed at promoting literature, arts, culture, criticism and philosophy at a deeper level. Conforming to our mission of giving back to the society, the magazine will remain a non-profit venture and shall be managed by The Purple Patch Foundation. While The Bangalore Review strives to inculcate the habit of not just reading but the reading of good literature in the youth of today, it also aspires to be an unbiased, nonrestrictive platform for young and promising independent writers. The editorial team seeks to strike a balance between the old and the young, the published and the unpublished, the known and the unknown, and the mainstream and the unconventional, while curating the articles for each edition.

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
