We are currently accepting submissions to our 2015 Literary Contests through Submittable from Dec. 1 – Mar. 15. We are looking for “literature of palpable quality: poems, stories, and essays so beguiling they invite us to come closer, look deeper.”

At home in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, Bellingham Review publishes literature of palpable quality, including poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and photography, in one Fall Online Edition and one Spring Print Edition, along with rolling content on our BH Review Blog. Established in 1977, Bellingham Review has earned a reputation for publishing established and emerging writers who successfully employ innovative form and content. Our contributors often go on to publish their own books and collections. Their work has recently appeared in Harper’s, Utne Reader, and Pushcart Prize Anthology.
