BASIC GUIDELINES

Breakfast seeks to publish works of literature and art drawn from diverse perspectives in the Webb community. We encourage students to submit creative work that encompasses their imaginations, passions, beliefs, talents, and unique voices. We prefer work that is concise and can be read easily and enjoyably, preferably in one sitting. You can submit multiple poems, pieces of art or photography, and can even submit in more than one genre; however, you can only submit in each genre one time.

All submissions will be judged and discussed anonymously, so please do not put any identifying information on the piece itself. Hard copy submissions need a cover sheet with your name and email address. Email submissions should include an attachment with no identifying information. If your submission is accepted and you’d like to keep it anonymous, that’s fine with us! We are also happy to include bylines with publication.

Breakfast is an inclusive space for creative and original expression, and we want whatever you can dream up that will inspire some sort of innate reaction in our readers.

Note: Since we recognize and value our nature as an international boarding school, we welcome submissions in languages other than English. We only ask that you submit the English version of your writing as well, so all members of our staff can read and think about it!

How to submit?

We will accept hard copy submissions and email submissions.

If you have a hard copy, please drop it in the designated cereal box at the Fawcett Library circulation desk.

Email submissions should be sent as attachments to breakfastatwebb@gmail.com.

Please send submissions for Issue 1 by April 15!

 

POETRY & FICTION GUIDELINES

We accept all forms and styles of poetry and fiction (including flash fiction, playwriting or screenwriting, stories, excerpts from longer works, etc.).

  • For poetry submissions, please send 1-5 poems.

  • For fiction submissions, please send 1-3 pieces per submission.

art/photography guidelines

Visual art submissions are encouraged! Please send high-quality scans or copies of artwork via email. You may submit anywhere from 1-10 pieces of art or photography.

 

interviews/reviews guidelines

We are looking for interviews with artists or writers (you can interview family members, faculty members, friends with professional work, etc.) that engage with the subject on issues of creative process, values, and goals. We are also interested in book reviews that showcase a book of fiction or poetry you read and loved enough to write about! Please send 1-3 pieces per submission.

 

multimedia guidelines

To be honest, we don’t really know what this means. However, if you have an artistic video of some kind, a piece that includes sound, music, moving images, anything other than straight text, we’re interested. Please send 1-3 pieces per submission.
