You will always be able to submit for free via email. If you'd like to donate $2 - $3 with your submission to support the continuation of literary publishing, we'll use it to keep our operations running (and to pay for services like Submittable that make life better for all of us). In no way will this change how we read your submission, but it will be deeply appreciated. Thank you! 

To submit for free via email, send to breadandbeautylitmag@gmail.com. Include a note stating what genre you're submitting, i.e. fiction, poetry, etc., and something that indicates you're an actual person. (Submissions without a message and/or including links that appear to be spam will be deleted immediately.)
