"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

They should also be separate email submissions. Don’t send us your poetry and fiction in one submission, please. It angers the elves.

Simultaneous submissions are welcome, but please do notify us immediately if it is accepted elsewhere.

Previously published pieces are okay, but they will have to be very, very good to be seriously considered. Please cite where it was published first.

We read on a rolling basis, so we’re taking submissions year round. To submit, email us at editorfirefly@gmail.com 

Submission time for Issues close on the 24th of each month. Everything we get after the 24th will be considered for the following Issue.

If a month has passed from the day you have submitted to us and you haven’t heard from us, please feel free to send a query with either “Query” or “What The Heck” in the subject line.

  • Poetry in any form or style. Your poetry submission may contain up to five (5) poems, may be submitted as one file, run fewer than 10 pages in length, and must be unpublished. Simultaneous submissions are welcomed so long as you withdraw them when accepted elsewhere.

  • Your name (or pen name), along with contact info. and third-person bio will be published as is, along with your selected work.
  • If you need to modify a submission for any reason, including your name (or pen name), contact email, biography, etc., please do so within our submission system. Modifications to work, including byline and bio, are not possible after publication.
  • We accept simultaneous submissions and prefer unpublished material.

Guidelines After Publication

  • There is no ability to “proof” your work after it has been chosen for publication. Errors made by Burningword Literary Journal to either the print or electronic versions will be corrected by Burningword ASAP. Please let us know if you find an error.
  • We accept simultaneous submissions; however, if we accept your work for publication, it is your responsibility to immediately notify all other magazines it is no longer available.
