Black Minds Mag Submission Guidelines


Black Minds Publishing is now taking submissions for publication in our online multidisciplinary arts magazine, Black Minds Mag. This magazine provides a fresh take on the literary magazine experience by featuring short poems and visual art from Black creatives that are transformed into mini-broadsides and combined into an online monthly arts magazine.


We are looking for raw artistic works that center the healing process of the Black mind, body, and spirit. Work that centers the struggle of intentional healing, the process it requires, and/or the weight that’s lifted when you reach the other side.


Submission Fee: FREE


Submission Guidelines:

  • Submissions are open to poets and visual artists of the Black diaspora.

  • Literary submissions must be 26 lines or less (line count includes the spaces between stanzas).

  • Any literary submissions should be uploaded as a .pdf file.

  • Previously published works and excerpts from poems are both allowed.

  • Multiple submissions are allowed. (No more than 5)

  • Visual art submissions should be high quality and uploaded as a .png file or high-quality .jpg file.


After Submission:
