The Winter Issue

Starting this year, B O D Y will be producing three triannual issues per year: a Winter Issue (January), a Spring Issue (May), and a Fall Issue (September).

As always, we will keep our submissions open throughout the year, closing them only periodically when housekeeping is required.

This new approach will allow us to balance our editorial ambitions against the time constraints of our everyday lives, giving us more time to plan and collect good work for each issue, while increasing the space we need to carefully read and consider all the work we receive.

It will also allow us to concentrate more fully on submissions during the intervals, so that we can respond more quickly to each submission we receive — within days, rather than weeks or months — and also give our contributors and editors more time to work on the content we’ve accepted, giving each piece the attention deserves.

Since 2012, B O D Y has published an incredible range of writing. More than 1000 posts to date have appeared in our pages, featuring work from some of the most exciting, interesting and compelling poets, novelists, short story writers, and essayists writing today.

Our goal has always been to discover new writers and feature their work alongside that of more established contemporaries. We’re proud of our run so far, and we hope this new approach will allow us to continue long into the future.

Each issue will be rolled out as usual, with a new post appearing each day, so come back tomorrow and next week, until the end of January, for great new poetry, stories, interviews and criticism from writers all over the world.
