About

BWR's online edition, Boyfriend Village, takes its name from a story written by Zachary Doss, "The Village with All of the Boyfriends." Zach was a BWR editor and beloved member of the literary community. He passed away in March 2018. Boyfriend Village seeks to be a fully accessible space for weird literary content, especially work from the margins and work that would be difficult to publish in print.

Before Submitting

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.
