Our submission guidelines have changed. Please read carefully before sending us your work.
The world of literature holds no boundaries and we at The Bangalore Review are committed to publishing exemplary writing from all over. We publish literary fiction, creative non-fiction, reviews, criticism, poetry and art. If you happen to be in love with life and think that your words can generate a vision, send us a shout – we’ll probably like your work.
The Bangalore Review accepts submissions on a rolling basis. We do not consider work that has appeared elsewhere (including Web sites and personal blogs), or translations that have already been published in English. Simultaneous submissions are welcome but do notify us as soon as your work is accepted elsewhere. Our response time varies from two to three months. If you do not hear from us in three months please feel free to submit elsewhere.
And because we don’t take rejections seriously, we hope that you won’t too. What matters though is sending in your best and most refreshing work, well edited and we’ll get talking. Include a brief biography (no more than 150 words) and a covering note with your submission. Before submitting, we strongly recommend that you read up recent issues to acquaint yourself with the kind of material that has been published previously.
We charge a nominal submission fee of $3 per submission. Submission fees are non-refundable. This fee will help cover submission processing fees, hosting fees and ongoing operational costs. This fee will also help us award an honorarium to one chosen contributor every quarter.
