The Bitter Southerner welcomes pitches for narrative nonfiction, journalism, and essays, as well as submissions of photo essays, video and audio.

We accept online submissions only.

Click the link above to submit your story or pitch.

Because of the high number of submissions, we now accept pitches for Tuesday feature stories only on the first seven days of each month, which allows us to ensure that every submission is accepted or rejected by the end of that month.

Submissions to our Folklore Project and our Thursday Southern Perspective sections are welcomed 24/7/365.
