THE BOLLI JOURNAL
The BOLLI Journal, our bi-annual art and literary magazine, offers a glimpse into the creative lives of the many writers and visual artists in our midst.
At BOLLI, we have an opportunity to invent and reinvent ourselves through our scholarly and creative pursuits. Our writing, photography, and art courses, as well as our less formal groups, encourage members to develop and refine their expressive spirits and skills. The BOLLI Journal provides a showcase for a variety of these efforts, illustrating who we are, how our history and imagination have shaped our identities, and how we craft our lives now.
The BOLLI Journal seeks original writing and visual art from all members.
BOLLI members may submit up to FOUR pieces of writing and/or art work (total) for consideration for publication in the 2018 volume.
WHAT TO SEND
Any BOLLI member may submit original unpublished fiction and/or nonfiction prose, poetry, or playwriting. Please double space and number each page of your work, but do not write your name on your manuscript/s. Include a word count below the title of each piece being submitted. (2000 word limit.)
Any BOLLI member may submit original unpublished, high resolution digital photography. Professionally photographed, high resolution images of original drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, and/or crafts may be submitted.
HOW TO SEND IT
Work should be submitted via email although hard copy may be left with Matt Medeiros for scanning and sending via email. (No particular computer program is preferred for either writing or photographs.) The email subject line should read “Journal Submission,” and material should be provided as attachments. In the text of your email, provide your name, home address, telephone number, and return email address. Send to the editor at: Bollijournal@gmail.com.
