Paper Brigade considers original, unpublished nonfiction between 1,500 and 2,500 words.
Please submit a complete manuscript, not a pitch.
Pieces should involve at least one 2022 book, and we encourage authors to be creative about the ways in which they accomplish this. (We’re not looking for straightforward book reviews.) The majority of our articles feature more than one book, and they often discuss trends in current literature or explore books in the context of older traditions.
Authors are also reminded that their pieces will be published several months after they are submitted, so references to specific current events may not be fitting.
In terms of style, please note that Paper Brigade is a literary, not academic, publication.
The submission period for nonfiction closes March 1, 2022.
