Please send all work by email to Be sure to include your name, a short bio, and the number of the Breadcrumb that inspired you. Please send .doc or .docx files instead of pdfs. You retain all rights to your work, we simply ask is that, if a piece is republished, you mention that it appeared here first.

All pieces are considered for our quarterly print zine, The Trail, & our monthly podcast, Breadcrumbs. Contributors interested being in featured on the podcast are encouraged to send recordings of their pieces, along with print versions as well.
