Baltimore Writing Hour is launching a literary magazine; accepting submissions

The time is finally ripe for a project that’s a natural extension of what we do: a Baltimore Writing Hour literary magazine.

We are compiling End of 83, a Baltimore-based literary journal featuring poetry, fiction, nonfiction, art, and photography. We will feature the work of writers who come to our group, but we are not limiting ourselves to our members; submissions from outside are welcome and encouraged! All submissions will undergo a blind review to ensure the ultimate fairness and good, unbiased (or least biased) taste.

Pass on the message along to any aspiring writers or simply people with something to share with the world. Our submissions guidelines are below, and they are pretty standard.



  • We’re launching a literary magazine called End of 83
  • We are currently accepting submissions
  • Email them to




End of 83 is the literary magazine of the Baltimore Writing Hour. It is the natural outlet for the group, but all work we receive will be considered for publication. We seek that which captures the unique spirit of our times, and enjoy pieces about Baltimore, the Mid Atlantic, city life, country life, life in general, “life, the universe, and everything”. We tend toward a clear, evocative style. But these are just guidelines; great work is great work!


Submissions are currently being accepted for poetry, prose, artwork, and photography. You may send them to


Submit up to five pages of poetry, ten pages of prose, or six images. All written work must be typed and submitted as attachments without your name in the document (.doc, .docx, .rtf, .pdf, .txt, .odt are acceptable; for images, .jpeg, .tif, and .pdf are acceptable). In the email body, include your full name, the name you would like to be published under, the genre of your work, contact information, and a short biography including website link if applicable.


Your work, name, and link will be posted on the End of 83 site. All rights will remain with the author.


We can also offer constructive criticism at the authors’ request.
