The Bitter Southerner welcomes pitches for narrative non-fiction, journalism and essays, as well as submissions of fiction, photography projects, video and audio.

It's a good idea to familiarize yourself our stories and style before you submit. All you have to do is browse through our ever-expanding table of contents.

We accept online submissions only.

The Bitter Southerner accepts electronic submissions only through Submittable. Submissions of completed projects are subject to a small review fee — $2.50 — to cover our administrative costs. Submissions of story ideas are not subject to the fee.

Because of the high number of submissions, we can respond only if we are interested in your submission.
