Belle Ombre: Now Accepting Submissions

Written by Emily Harstone

Belle Ombre is a UK-based literary journal that publishes a wide variety of writing. They publish fiction, poetry, and memoir, all rather standard, as well as portraits of established artists/authors, scientific and academic writing, travel writing, and journalism. Belle Ombre was founded in 2017, so they are still relatively new.

They are an online literary journal with an annual print edition. The website is well designed and easy to navigate. The website is visually pleasing.

It is easy to get an idea for what they are interested in publishing by reading the magazine.

Belle Ombre accepts very little of what they receive. They try to respond to all submissions with a month, but occasionally take more time. You can query the editor after four weeks has passed. All submissions must be made online. Simultaneous submissions are allowed as long as you alert them if your work is accepted elsewhere. All rights remain with the writer.

They have a staff of three editors and four readers.

They are open to reprints, if they think that by reprinting something they will help that piece reach a different audience. Always tell them if a work is a reprint.
