November Bees is a quarterly online art and literature journal. We publish prose, poetry, and visual art.
We want writing that can be devoured in one sitting but lingers long after the last word is read. Send us the unexpected, or the expected with a slant.
Fiction, Nonfiction, Blurred Genre/Hybrid: Send up to 3 pieces of 1,000 words or less.
Poetry: Send us 3-6 poems, any form or style, in a single document.
Art: Send up to 10 high-resolution individual pieces. In your cover letter please note the titles and the medium used for each. If the images you want us to consider are available in an online portfolio please feel free to email us the links.
Submissions are accepted year round.
Currently, we are unable to pay contributors.
We have two options for submitting. You can submit free-of-charge via email following the guidelines below. If you prefer to use Submittable there is a $3 submission fee. We have no preference, and assure you that work submitted through either option will be treated equally. Generally, we respond to submissions within 60 days.
If submitting through email -
Subject line: Genre of the work you are submitting + your last name (example: Poetry/Smith)
Body of email: Cover letter (optional) & a breif third-person bio.
Attachment: Attach your submission using the appropriate format (see general guidelines)
Send email submissions to: email@example.com
Upon acceptance, November Bees acquires first North American serial rights, after which the copyright reverts to the author.
