We Are Accepting Pitches

We will soon be taking submissions for our quarterly digital publication, but for now we are just taking pitches for our blog on Medium. Subscribe to our monthly newsletter here for updates.

We do not take full stories until we have heard a pitch. Writers may submit their pitches via our pitch form below. If we like your pitch, one of the editors will reach out to you via the email provided on the form. Simultaneous pitches are allowed, but we would like to be notified if your article is being submitted elsewhere. We do not publish previously published book reviews at the moment.

Here is a description of our sections:

Book Reviews: tell us a story about a story. Reviews can be academic, experimental, literary or chatty. 


Interviews: Real and imagined interviews with authors and their characters.

 
Book Playlists: Does the song inspire the words or do the words inspire the music. 


Reading Lists: Books threaded together into lists with a deeper purpose than promotion. What impactful conversations can be had around these books. Once again, make it personal. We rather see this in a title pitch: “These five books represent each stage of grief when I lost granny” than “five books about dying” because well…who cares.  


Day in the Life: Authors walk us through a day in their lives. 


Craft: Quick tips by authors on the craft of writing. 


Artistic Reviews: Comics, paintings, pastels, watercolors, and photographic reviews along with a brief blurb about the connection, mediums used, and process. 


Words in Movement: performative reviews of books. Spoken word. Etc. Pre-recorded and sent with a 150-300 word blurb about the performance, book, and process. 

Words that Inspire Words: Poetic responses to books along with a 150-300 word blurb about the book and the connection to the poetry. 

 

To get a feel for our stories and to find out our word limit, you can visit our Medium here! We currently do not pay for reviews. We review because we love BIPOC Books and want to spread the love!
 

Got a book you want to review? Send us a pitch.
