We would like to again congratulate those who were published in Issue 37 this year, and thank everyone for their support.
As we are an entirely student-run journal, we would also like to remind you that we will not be reading submissions during the summer, and will start again in September, Fall 2017, during the academic school year. Please know that while we are happy to receive your summer submissions, you will not receive any responses until September.
May your summers be full of creativity, productivity, and sensitivity! Happy writing, everyone.

Looking for new outlets for your writing or art? Check out Synchronized Chaos! They are an international monthly web magazine welcoming submissions of all genres of writing as well as visual art.
They especially welcome those contributors who may not yet have found a home for their work in the publishing world, who prefer the process of creating to the process of selling and promoting their work.
Former BFR contributor Wendell Mayo was recently interviewed at the Lit Pub, you can see his interview here! His story, “The Universal Store” originally appeared in BFR and now is being included in his newly published collection.
