Boulevard strives to publish only the finest in fiction, poetry, and non-fiction. While we frequently publish writers with previous credits, we are very interested in less experienced or unpublished writers with exceptional promise. If you have practiced your craft and your work is the best it can be, send it to Boulevard.
As with any magazine, before submitting, read several recent issues to get a feel for style, content, quality, and form of the work we publish. For a sample issue or subscription, click here.
Submit no more than five poems at a time.
We accept poems of up to 200 lines.
We do not accept light verse.
We accept fiction works up to 8,000 words.
We do not accept science fiction, erotica, westerns, horror, romance, or children's stories.
(Essays, interviews, etc.)
We accept nonfiction works up to 8,000 words.
Minimum payment for prose is $100, maximum is $300
Minimum payment for poetry is $25, maximum is $250
Because of the high volume of submissions received, Boulevard makes no assurances and is in no way responsible for unsolicited manuscripts that are lost, damaged, or misplaced for any reason whatsoever.
GENERAL GUIDLINES FOR ALL SUBMISSIONS
No submissions will be accepted from May 1 to October 1.
All submissions must include author's name and address on each submission.
Authors retain rights to their work from the time of publication in Boulevard. Boulevard does allow, and even encourages, simultaneous submissions, but we want to be notified of this fact. Please withdraw work that has been accepted elsewhere. Although we accept multiple submissions, please wait a reasonable time between entries.
Photocopies and computer printed submissions are acceptable; handwritten ones are not. Cover letters with previous credits are appreciated but not required. Our average response time is four months; please do not query before then.
Send only fully complete, fully proofread work. Send only your best work.
Please mail submissions and/or subscriptions to:

All submissions, and all correspondence, must include SASE (with sufficient postage) for response. There is no fee for submitting by post.
Please note there is a fee of $3 to submit electronically. This is used to cover costs such as printing.
No email submissions will be accepted.
The status of online submissions can be checked at any time by logging into the submission manager (web address above).
To withdraw a manuscript simply log into the submission manager and follow the prompts. Partial withdraws should be noted through Submittable.
