Thank you for your interest in contributing to The Bombay Literary Magazine (TBLM). We are now ACCEPTING submissions for ISSUE 56 (December 2023).
PLEASE NOTE: we are now closed for POETRY submissions.
☞ We publish three times a year: April, August and December. We accept submissions in five categories: fiction, poetry, translated fiction, translated poetry and graphic fiction.
☞ Submission period for Issue 56 (December): September 01, 2023 — September 30, 2023. But there is a change from our previous submission procedure. Since we only have a small editorial team, we can now only consider the first 400 submissions in each category. Typically, we get around 350 submissions in fiction, 450 or more submissions in poetry, and for the other categories, the number of submissions are well within 100 or so.
☞ Payment: We pay an honorarium of ₹ 5,000 (approx. $61 or €51) per contribution.
