NEW PLACE TO SUBMIT WORK
BATEAU AND GMAIL
two great tastes
(((((((((as of 1/12/16)))))))))))
Send us your best work. Send us funny work, quirky work, outstanding work, work that is well punctuated or lacks punctuation. Fearless work. Work that wants to crash on our sofa.
SUBMIT ALL WORK TO: BATEAUPRESS [AT] GMAIL [DOT] COM
in the subject heading of the submission please write SUBMISSION and then the genre (poetry, fiction, nonfiction, playlet, flash fiction, b/w illustrations, comic).
a brief bio is encouraged but not required. please send up to 5 pieces as a single attachment. if submitting comics or black and white illustrations, please remember our magazine is 5 x 7.
oh, last thing: you DO NOT need to inform us of simultaneous submissions. If we accept your submission and it's already taken by another publisher, oh well. That's our fault for not reading fast enough. We'll just hope you try us again.
what are you waiting for?
New message from BATEAU

SUBMITTABLE WAS OUR ONLINE SUBMISSION SYSTEM BUT THEY NOW CHARGE FEES FOR WRITERS TO SUBMIT WORK. SUBMITTABLE WANTS MONEY FROM WRITERS OR MONEY FROM LIT MAGS....I'M THINKING NO! WE WILL HAVE ANOTHER SYSTEM IN PLACE WITHIN THE WEEK.... A SYSTEM THAT ALLOWS FOR THE DIALOGUE BETWEEN ARTISTS AND PUBLISHERS TO CONTINUE IN A MORE EQUITABLE WAY. I DON'T MIND SUBMISSION FEES AND THINK THEY ARE A GOOD IDEA FOR SOME REALLY GREAT MAGAZINES...WE GOT TO HELP EACH OTHER OUT, READ EACH OTHER'S WORK, SUPPORT EACH OTHER'S PROJECTS...HOWEVER, SUBMITTABLE IS ACTING THUGGISH AND STUPID....THEY ARE NOT LOOKING TO HELP, THEY ARE JUST FLAT OUT EXTORTING MONEY. ENOUGH!!! BYE BYE SUBMITTABLE, WE'RE MOVING ON!!!!
old message: Submittable is our online submission system. The submission process is simple and intuitive. It is organized by category and accepts most document formats. Get started on Submittable now.
Bateau is on the way back. Bateau Lit Mag submissions open January 10, 2016
Submittable will be up and running full steam
Bateau Lit Mag

Bateau welcomes submissions in poetry, flash fiction, playlets, flash nonfiction, comics/graphic stories, and b/w illustration. (See the category descriptions on Submittable page for details.)

Chapbook Contest Submissions
Bateau Press alternates two chapbook contests: the Boom Poetry Chapbook Contest and the Keel Short Short Fiction Chapbook Contest.
Keel / Boom alternate each year. Reading periods are in the fall for spring publication.
"I so loved the process of acceptance to publication with Bateau. I felt that my work was in good hands--creative, thoughtful, bright hands--and that idea was reinforced throughout. Now I get to hold a book that is not just a book, and not just mine...but something really beautiful, a piece of art that has been loved into creation."
