BLF Press

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

BLF Press is a small, independent, Black feminist publishing house. We anticipate publishing one to two titles of extraordinary quality a year.  

We are open to various types of literary work. While we welcome all submissions that meet our guidelines, we are especially interested in work that centers women, particularly Black women and same gender loving women. Our preferred genres are literary fiction, memoir, creative non-fiction, and short fiction. 

Please send us your very best unpublished work (this includes work published on blogs). If your work is under serious consideration elsewhere, please wait until you've received a decision before submitting it to us. We ask for limited print and electronic rights. 

We accept Microsoft Word files only. Please use the following formatting guidelines:

  • Double-spaced Times New Roman or similar font
  • Five-space paragraph indents
  • One-inch margins
  • Name, title, genre, page number in the upper right hand corner of the header
