  • Additional info

    In honor of Zach’s bold vision and legacy, Boyfriend Village seeks to be a fully accessible space for unusual, boundary-pushing literary content, especially work from the margins, work that makes exciting use of digital platforms, and work that other well-established journals might overlook. Every issue of Boyfriend Village has a new Online Editor, who selects a new theme and keeps the village refreshed and moving forward, even as it honors a vital part of BWR history. We ask that writers wait one month after receiving a response to submit again. If you are a Black, Indigenous, or incarcerated writer, you may email your submission for no fee. BWR pays a one-year subscription and a nominal lump-sum fee for all works published.
