Labrish publishes literary fiction that reflects the Caribbean experience. Fiction submitted to Labrish does not have to be set in the Caribbean. However, we are not interested in fiction that simply plays with old stereotypes about the Caribbean. At this time we do not publish poetry, essays (scholarly or personal), book reviews, or any material that does not lend itself to the story format.
How to Submit

Labrish publishes Caribbean fiction in electronic and print formats. In its electronic form, Labrish publishes one story a month on the Web site Labrish.com. Labrish also publishes anthologies of Caribbean writing, which may include fiction that first appeared online. At this time, we do not publish essays (scholarly or personal), poetry, book reviews, or any material that does not lend itself to the story format. Labrish aims to publish quality fiction-whether traditional or experimental, in standard or Caribbean English-by established and emerging writers.
