Submitting Your Work to BUST Magazine

Before submitting to BUST Magazine

The Market List recommends you verify the market is active and accepting submissions before sending your manuscript via regular mail. You may verify a market status by either visiting their website, calling their listed phone number, or comfirming via regular mail that the market is still active before sending them your work. To be sure your submission is appropriate for this market, we recommend you familiarize yourself with BUST Magazine by reading a sample issue before submitting.


If you have recently submitted to BUST Magazine or have experience with this market, please submit a comment below. Recent submission response times are always welcome and helpful to other writers.

From the BUST Magazine guidelines:

Got a great story or a great story idea? Something you're so passionate about that you've just gotta share it with the world? Then don't just sit there, woman! Submit your story to BUST!

If we're interested in running your piece, we'll get back to you about it, probably within two to three months. If we aren't, we won't. Unfortunately, due to the volume of submissions we receive, we will not get back to you if we decide not to use your idea. Please don't take it personally: it's just that we are woefully understaffed here at BUST HQ.

BUST does not accept poetry. Sorry.

If you are submitting a story idea rather than a story, please also send us clips of your previous writing.
