Rosebud Submission Guidelines
Thank you for your interest in Rosebud. We are open to outside submissions and we review material throughout the year. Although there are a few pointers below, the best way to get a feeling of what we do is to read an issue or two. You can either visit your local bookstore (we are available in Borders and Barnes & Noble), or better yet—subscribe or buy a sample copy directly from us. (see page two). Also, check out our website at www.rsbd.net
Rosebud’s Submission Policy
Rosebud, Inc. is a nonprofit organization staffed by volunteers. To handle the growing thousands of submissions we receive every year, In 1999 we launched the Rosebud Fast-track Initiative (RFI) to streamline submission processing. To achieve this we charge a handling fee of one dollar. For a response to your submission in approximately 45 days from the date of receipt, please:
* Put the letters RFI on the outside of the envelope, and circle it!
* FOR PROSE ONLY: Include a one-dollar handling fee or check for $1 made out to ROSEBUD. ($1 covers up to three stories,.)
* Include 1 to 3 stories and/or 1 to 5 poems
* include a self-addressed stamped envelope for our reply (we can recycle manuscripts) and/or manuscript return.
Send fiction and essays with SASE and $1.00 handling fee (if the piece is prose) to:
