Please note that Black Lantern Publishing has recently changed its submission dates. Currently we are NOT accepting submissions. Submissions which are sent after August 1, 2010, will be recycled and unread. When our general submissions reopen, we will be accepting submissions during the following months:

Black Lantern Publishing releases four online journals per year, and one "best of" print edition, yearly. We do not read submissions during the months of February, May, August, and November, as we are preparing the issues for publication online during those months. Please observe these dates, and submit your work accordingly. Submissions that are received after the deadline, will not be read. You may receive an email notifying you that submissions are closed for that month, and to resubmit for the following issue.
All writers and artists that are published in our online journal may be published in our print collection. Those works will appear in both the online and print edition. These works are selected by the Editor-in-Chief and the publishing house staff. Requests for exclusive publication in either the print or online edition will be ignored or denied.
