Brittle Star Magazine

Brittle Star is an international literary magazine that has been dedicated for a decade to publishing new poetry and short fiction. It has earned a reputation for providing a platform for writers at the beginning of their careers, many of whom have seen their work in print for the first time.

As well as great new poetry and fiction, the magazine has regular and inspiring critical features, including interviews with established writers (David Constantine, Jeremy Hooker, Mimi Khalvati, Galway Kinnell and more), close readings and in-depth articles on literature.

There's a review of one of the issues here that gives a flavour of the type of things they like. Of course, I recommend you ALWAYS buy a copy of a magazine before you submit to it. I do. ALWAYS. It's only polite (and sensible)

Brittle Star welcomes submissions of unpublished, original work in the following categories:

Poetry: 1 – 4 poems

Short fiction: 1 – 2 stories up to 2000 words each (double-line spaced)

Deadline for issue 30: 28 October 2011.
