Summer edition submission window

You can read essential submission info on our summer edition in the 'submissions opportunities' section. We are only able to take work that is sent to us on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th July, 2020, due to having so many overspill submissions. Work sent before or after these dates can't be accepted, sorry. We look forward to seeing your work. Make sure you read past editions and the submission info to make the process easy for yourself and for the team at Black Bough.
