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. There are also two separate month-long open reading periods for unsolicited submissions of fiction and poetry per year. Our next reading period opens on December 1, 2017 and ends on December 31, 2017.

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.
