General Guidelines

Bread 'n Molasses celebrates Atlantic Canadian culture, applauds our successes, encourages independent thinking, promotes personal growth, instills pride, teaches cooperation and unites our Community. We strive to publish varied content of interest to Atlantic Canadians regardless of age, sex, whether living in the region or away. We only consider submissions in tune with this objective.

Bread 'n Molasses is a regional magazine. Positivity is the key ingredient. If you have nothing nice or helpful to share, this probably isn't the best place to submit your work.

Submissions can be in any style. Non-fiction or fiction, prose or poetry, artwork or graphic design, photograph or film, spoken word or music recording - we're open to anything as long as it has a positive slant and is of interest to our readers.

We are committed to having most of our content contributed by Atlantic Canadians. However, we may accept outside work if we find it's of value and interest to the community.

You may submit as many pieces of work as you desire, we only ask you limit your submissions to one per email.

We accept work year round. Send submissions to editor@breadnmolasses.com

Please do not send attachments as they will be deleted unread.

Allow between one and three months for consideration of your work. We will respond to your submission as soon as possible. If you haven't heard from us after three months, please send a reminder.

We consider simultaneous submissions. Please indicate in your email that the work is being considered elsewhere.

We accept previously published work. Tell us where the work was published so we can give credit.

You retain the copyright to your work. Bread 'n Molasses asks for permission to keep your work on our site in archives, but will remove at any time. If desired, just ask.

Contributors are not paid.

Non-fiction submissions should be no longer than 1500 words, unless a larger work has been discussed and agreed upon.

Writing should be clear, concise and correct. Double-check for spelling mistakes and typos.

Make sure you've got your facts straight. Ask yourself, "Would an intelligent twelve year old understand?" If the answer is no, you need to rework the piece. Avoid using a fancy word where a simple one will do.
