Blydyn Square Review is the first literary magazine in history to accept only blind submissions: We don’t allow cover letters, names, summaries, or any other identifying information to be submitted—only the writing itself, pasted into the body of an email. The only thing we will know about the author is his/her email, and absolutely nothing else. (See our Submissions Guidelines, below, for more details.)
Blind submissions allow us to create the first-ever literary level playing field. We can’t choose someone because they went to our alma mater or reject someone because we had a bad ex with the same first name or for some other silly (and totally non-writing-related) reason. Our submissions process is completely groundbreaking: Every writer’s work will truly stand on its own merits alone.
PUBLICATION & CONTENT
Blydyn Square Review will be published online quarterly—that’s 4 issues jam-packed with thought-provoking content each year.
Anything goes when it comes to content, as long as it makes you think. We’ll publish short fiction, creative nonfiction, persuasive topical essays, poetry, or whatever else you’ve got. We even plan to publish novels in serial format. It worked for Charles Dickens, so why not us?
SUBSCRIPTIONS & PAYMENT
Blydyn Square Review will be readable online by subscription. But don’t panic! You CAN afford it.
Believe it or not, you’ll receive a lifetime—not monthly, not annual, but forever—subscription for just $25! To sign up, just click HERE. How can you go wrong?

And don’t forget: Blydyn Square Review uses a strict blind submissions process, so be sure NOT to include a cover letter, summary, or any identifying information in your email (other than your email address itself). Any submissions that come in with a name, cover letter, identifying information, or attachment will be deleted.
