The Bitter Southerner welcomes pitches for narrative non-fiction, journalism and essays, as well as submissions of fiction, poetry, photography, 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 publish one great story from the South every week, whether that story is told with words, photographs, video, audio or any combination thereof. Every Tuesday is Bitter Tuesday.
We accept online submissions only.
The Bitter Southerner accepts electronic submissions only through Submittable. Electronic submissions are subject to a small fee — $2.50 — to cover our administrative costs.

We’re reviewing submissions as fast as we can, so please allow a few weeks for a response.
