About

Bellowing Ark was launched in 1984 to remedy a dearth: no market existed for the kind of literature that we wanted to read and wanted to see published. We set out to create such a market, and, by example, encourage others to do the same. We believe that there is more to art than the desire to shock — the glib and facile expression of nihilism and despair. We are convinced that artists, particularly literary, have a responsibility to their audience and are required to present the world as meaningful, for, if the world has no meaning, how can life? The material we publish is the best expression of that responsibility that we can command.

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.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
