We are currently accepting submissions for Braided Brook Volume 2!

We're interested in short works of nonfiction 1000 words or less. We publish narrative-heavy, human-centered essays, as well as experimental forms. (In other words, true-life short stories!) We also publish photographs that blend in some way--literally or thematically--with accompanying essays. A submission for Braided Brook Volume 2 should include both your writing and an accompanying photograph.

Please email to submit your writing for consideration.
Your submission should include:

  • Your name
  • The title of your essay
  • Your essay, either included in the body of the Email or attached as a Word document
  • A high-resolution photograph (that you hold the copyright to!) to accompany your essay

The Deadline for submissions for Vol. 2 is May 31, 2017.

If your essay and photograph are chosen for publication in the journal, your work will appear on and in the print edition of Braided Brook Volume 2. You will also be provided with a complimentary copy of the print edition of Braided Brook Volume 2.

By submitting your story and photographic work, you agree to our Terms & Conditions.
