Brick Submission Guidelines

Brick accepts unsolicited manuscripts of non-fiction only. Submissions must be previously unpublished. We accept simultaneous submissions, but please let us know immediately if your manuscript is accepted for publication elsewhere.

We urge you to familiarize yourself with the magazine and the kind of writing we publish before you submit to Brick. As we do not consider query letters, reading a few issues of the magazine is the best way to determine whether your work matches our style.

Please note that we do not accept fiction or poetry submissions at all, nor do we consider unsolicited artwork. Fiction and poetry submissions will not be read.

While Brick does not set a word limit, we strongly suggest submissions not exceed 5,000 words.

We are please to accept submissions both by mail and online through Submittable. For online submissions, we charge a modest fee of $3.00 to cover our costs. We also offer the option to submit and subscribe. To submit online, visit our Submittable page here.

If you would prefer to send submission by mail, please send your non-fiction manuscript by mail to the following address:

P.O. Box 609, Stn P
Toronto, ON M5S 2Y4

Please include an email address with your submission. If you would like us to respond by regular mail, or to return your manuscript, you must include a self-addressed envelope of the appropriate size with sufficient postage affixed. If you are submitting to Brick from the United States or from elsewhere outside of Canada, we will send you a response by email and will not be able to return your manuscript unless you include a cheque for $5.00 to cover the cost of Canadian postage.

Response time for submissions is three to six months, for which we apologize in advance. We read everything we get, and carefully, but Brick is a small operation.

Thank you!
