Bricolage Literary & Visual Arts Journal only accepts unpublished submissions. If your prose, poetry, music, or visual art work has been previously published, we will not consider it for publication.

We will allow simultaneous submissions, but you must let us know when you submit that the piece is under consideration with multiple publishers. If your piece gets accepted for publication somewhere else, you must let us know immediately.

We DO NOT accept academic/research papers, critical essays, news articles, or technical documents.

PLEASE NOTE: For collaborative projects, it is the responsibility of the submitting writer/artist to obtain permission from each participant prior to submission.


  1. Make a separate file for each work you submit.
  2. Ensure that your submission is as free as possible from errors.
  3. If prose or poetry: Format your submission to be 12pt font in either Times New Roman or Arial.
  4. If prose, poetry, or visual arts: Apart from the body of the submission, include only your UW Student ID Number.
  5. Save your file in this format: “category—title of work—student ID number.docx” Do NOT include any part of your name in the file name. Example: Prose—The Tale of the Husky—0714589.doc
