Submission Guidelines

The Paris Bitter Hearts Pit is a Paris based, literary PRINT fanzine.
We're looking for submissions in poetry, short fiction, short non fiction, art. Avoid the academic, the sentimental, the bland.

Send subs (in English) to :

(remove ##)

Subs should be no more than 1000 words. We favour subs of around 500 words or under.

Don't forget to include a few words about who you are and what you do. In other words, a short bio should accompany all subs.

Art Submissions and designers

Feel free to contact the PBHP if you're interested in designing or all part of an issue. Send unsollicited art submissions as link to online work. Art submissions that are accepted can either be printed in the magazine as self-standing, inset elements or included in the general design or background of one or more pages, along with other graphic elements. In any case, full credit will be given. If you have questions about this, contact us.

Copyright notice

The Paris Bitter Hearts Pit ('PBHP' hereafter) cannot afford costly litigation.

Therefore, graphic artists, designers and illustrators, please make sure that you only use pictures and graphics for which you own the copyright and/or which you know for certain that you can legally use in a derivative work, for instance because you obtained official agreement from the copyright holders.

See this page for some important info:

Even "old" pictures can be protected by copyright. The safest rule is, therefore, if you're not sure you can use a picture, then don't.

To put in a nutshell:

We can't, and won't, take responsibility for copyright infringements : authors and artists whose work is included in PBHP (paper and/or online version) remain entirely and exclusively responsible and liable for their work(s) and for any legal consequences of the publication by PBHP of such work(s), whether such consequences affect them (the artists) only, or PBHP, or both.
