REVIEW PROCESS: All works contributed to bozalta will be considered for publication. Contributions are reviewed by the bozalta collective for content, style and format. Selected contributions will reflect bozalta’s mission. As a collective, we reject the myth of “blind” submissions; instead, we take into consideration the political and social location of each contributor. The entire review process will take 8-10 weeks. Notification of acceptance will be sent via email by early March. If contributors are asked to make revisions, they must submit either revisions or rationales for not revising within 2 weeks.
our Winter 2017 Call for Contributions is now up! if you have work you want to share that doesn’t fit into these categories, let us know! we’re interested. you can reach us via email@example.com, or on Facebook!
