How to get published (in The Bastille lit. journal)

Interesting Times 200w

Last year’s issue of THE BASTILLE literary journal.

Think of this as the Jesse jigsaw issue.

We are hoping for poems and prose that fit together like a strange jigsaw of vibrant, arresting images or moments of lives. The connections will emerge by chance. To link the jigsaw pieces we suggested you include some of these words: Jesse, orange, clock, steps, a letter, 44, dress.

What sex is Jesse? You choose.



Flash fiction (up to 500 words, send up to 3 pieces): Focus on conflict or making us care about Jesse.

Poetry (send up to 3 poems, max 40 lines each, to fit A5 pages): Give us narrative or a point of view – Jesse’s point of view or a point of view on Jesse.

Photographs, art: Send strong images that are suggestive of a life lived. Include any of the things in the list (Jesse, orange, clock, steps, a letter, 44, dress).

Deadline: midnight 31st October 2015
Format: Word document or rtf
Format for art, photographs: send as jpeg 330dpi
Send to: AT

How to get published:
1. Work must not have been published before.
2. Simultaneous submissions fine if you tell us as soon as your work is accepted elsewhere.
3. Include a 50 word bio.
4. Send it in the format we ask for, respect the length requirements and page size.
