Exclusive Submissions Policy

Charlesbridge accepts unsolicited manuscripts submitted exclusively to us for a period of three months. “Exclusive Submission” should be noted on  all correspondence. If you have not heard back from us after three months, you may assume we do not have a place for your project and you may submit it elsewhere. 

We look forward to seeing your work.
