About

At home in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, Bellingham Review publishes literature of palpable quality, including poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and photography, in one Fall Online Edition and one Spring Print Edition, along with rolling content on our BH Review Blog. Established in 1977, Bellingham Review has earned a reputation for publishing established and emerging writers who successfully employ innovative form and content. Our contributors often go on to publish their own books and collections. Their work has recently appeared in Harper’s, Utne Reader, and Pushcart Prize Anthology.

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. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • 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.
