Submission Guidelines

Please read the following information before submitting to The BiblioFiles:

For all applicants

Please, please, PLEASE do send a cover letter. If you don't know what it is, just give us your name, address, prior publishing accomplishments, and a short biography (50 words or less). Otherwise, we won't be able to publish it under your name or mail out copies. Please title it "Yourname/ Bibliofile Submission", and if possible, have the art you send clearly state your name either in the name of the file or in the file itself.

For Writers

We recommend that you send your artwork either as a .doc or .docx file, they are compatible with our computers and provide seamless transition as we do our editing. We also ask for only five pieces if they are less than 500 words, and three if they are short story or over 500 words. Now, if it's on the cusp, it's not a deal-breaker, the number is somewhat arbitrary. Although not required, we ask writers to try and stay away from cliche story-lines and poetry. We also do accept simultaneous submissions, as long as you let us know beforehand and also if it is accepted elsewhere. We do not accept reprints.

For Artists

Please send your images as .jpg or .jpeg, and try to keep them large pixel images. Otherwise, they might not be accepted because they look cheap when printed or blown up in size. Keep in mind what your picture may look like in greyscale. We won't be able to publish in color immediately, so although your picture may have dazzling colors, it may seem to be missing something in greyscale. Plan accordingly!
