Guidelines for Paper Submission

BIMB publishes two issues per year of finely crafted contemporary literary and visual art. We are looking for innovation, aesthetic vision, and accomplished craftsmanship. Our tastes are non-sectarian, with an interest in the experimental.

BIMB considers only unpublished written work, and acquires first-time Indian rights upon publication. Thereafter, all rights revert to the author, and the work may be reprinted as long as appropriate acknowledgement to Bimb is made. No such restrictions apply to visual art submissions.
