Bomb Magazine

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Founded in 1981, BOMB Magazine is dedicated to delivering the artist's voice. BOMB includes a print quarterly magazine and an online daily publication. In addition to conversations between artists of all disciplines, BOMB publishes original works of fiction, poetry, and translation. 

BOMB hosts an annual literary contest, alternating between fiction and poetry each year, with a distinguished guest judge. 

We encourage submissions of adventurous work that push the boundaries of form or content in some way. Our submission period is open twice a year from July 1st through July 31st and again from December 1 through December 31st.

Before submitting, we encourage you to read the magazine, online and in print, to acquaint yourself with the material we have published. Subscriptions to BOMB are available here.
