Our next open submissions window for our SUNDRY BRICKS feature (non fiction essays of 555 words or less) is from May 15, 2017 - July 31, 2017. During this period, writers are invited to submit original, non-fiction pieces up to 555 words maximum. Submission must be in the form of a personal essay, prose, excerpt, or ramble that builds on the narrative of our lives, finding new insight to old struggles...old insight to new struggles...and all shades-of-gray in between. Pieces that include the concept of 'building' (which authors can interpret as creatively as they choose (it's a noun! it's a verb!)) are especially favored. There is no fee for this open submission.

SUNDRY BRICKS: These short pieces should not exceed 555 words, should be typed and double-spaced, 12-pt font, in a Word document format, and must include the following information: 

Title of work
Author name & brief bio (one-two lines)
Author email address

Unsolicited submissions should be emailed to only during the submission window listed above. The Big Brick Review will notify authors if their piece is selected for publication in the Online Journal. 

The Big Brick Review can only consider unpublished work, or previously published material for which the author holds rights. If your submission is selected for publication online at The Big Brick Review, rights revert to author after publication online. 

At this time, we do not accept poetry, fiction, or other unsolicited work.
