Bread 'n Molasses magazine

When I was in Moncton at the end of April to lead a workshop at the Frye Festival, I came across a great regional magazine: Bread 'n Molasses.  So for those of you who might have something to say that's of interest to an audience in Atlantic Canada, I thought I'd share their guidelines.

General Guidelines

Bread ‘n Molasses celebrates Atlantic Canadian culture, applauds our successes, encourages independent thinking, promotes personal growth, instills pride, teaches cooperation and unites our Community. We strive to publish varied content of interest to Atlantic Canadians regardless of age, sex, whether living in the region or away. We only consider submissions in tune with this objective.

Bread ‘n Molasses is a regional magazine. Positivity is the key ingredient. If you have nothing nice or helpful to share, this probably isn’t the best place to submit your work.

Submissions can be in any style. Non-fiction or fiction, prose or poetry, artwork or graphic design, photograph or film, spoken word or music recording – we’re open to anything as long as it has a positive slant and is of interest to our readers.

We are committed to having most of our content contributed by Atlantic Canadians. However, we may accept outside work if we find it’s of value and interest to the community.

We accept previously published work. Tell us where the work was published so we can give credit.

Not sure if your content is on topic… or looking for ideas? Visit Topic Ideas here. 

Contributors are not paid.

Submissions should be no longer than 1500 words. Please do not submit poems greater than 165 lines.  Subject matter should be suitable for family viewing. No horror, violence, romantic scenes or curse words.  Submit no more than one short story or up to three poems per email.

Bread ‘n Molasses is published 6 times per year on January 1st, March 1st, May 1st, July 1st, September 1st, and November 1st.  Editorial submissions are due 2 months prior to the publication date.
