Hot Metal Bridge is looking for thoughtful and well-written fiction. We like to publish the stories of Pittsburgh and the Appalachian/Ohio Valley/Northeast/Midwest region, but are always thrilled to publish any well-crafted, thoughtful work that comes our way. Send a bio and contact information, including an e-mail address. We can’t wait to hear from you. Good luck and good writing.
For the first time ever, Hot Metal Bridge is accepting digital media submissions! It’s very exciting. So please send us your audio/video submissions—your slam poetry, your dance poetry, your performance poetry, your ___________ poetry, you get the idea.
Or, just send us poems on the good, old-fashioned page. We’re looking for the best, regardless of form or theme.
Send us up to five of your amazing poems. Please include a short bio with your submission.
