We aim to publish the best in modern literature, from pulp to literary fiction and everything in-between. Genres are declassé, passé, and simply so last century. If it’s got a beating (or dare we say black?) heart, we want it. No more irony, no more clever cheek; just the crisp snap of authenticity slicing through sinews. So bring us your best, and we’ll do the rest. Black Heart Magazine: breaking the rules of fiction.

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.
