Baily’s Beads accepts original pieces from students, faculty, staff, and alumni of the University of Pittburgh at Bradford and from members of our local community. We seek work that reflects our community, culture, or current events in a distinctive and inventive way.
We accept poetry, fiction, performance poetry, music compositions, and creative nonfiction (memoirs, essays, commentaries, interviews, and travel and nature writing).
We also accept art: photography, paintings, drawings, mixed media, and sculpture.
If you would like to submit your work for the next issue, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org with a separate cover sheet containing your name, contact information (address, e-mail, and phone), title of your piece, and genre or medium.
So that the staff may judge anonymously and fairly, we ask that your name does not appear on the work itself.
We ask that you double-space prose and single-space poetry. Authors may submit up to twenty pages.
Images should have a resolution of 300 dpi and be saved as a jpeg file to ensure a high quality print. For more about how to save files at 300 dpi, please visit this link.
We ask that each author/artist submit no more than ten pieces each year. Entries may be sent electronically to email@example.com. We accept submissions year-round.
By submitting, you agree to allow the staff to use your work in Baily’s Beads and its promotions.
