The online Community for the literature you won’t find anywhere else.


Beautiful Losers is a literary community dedicated to promoting the literary work of both new and established writers.

We accept submissions of poetry, short fiction, and short non-fiction.  We are looking for poetry, fiction and non-fiction to publish on our Journal every Wednesday. Also, the best submissions will end up in our quarterly review.


Send all your writing in the body of your query email. If your writing requires special formatting that necessitates the use of PDF or Word, please state that explicitly in your query letter, otherwise your work will be deleted unread.

Poetry: Please send no more than four poems here.

Short Fiction: Please send no more than one short story of up to 5,000 words here.

Non-Fiction: Please send no more than two pieces of non-fiction of up to 5,000 words here. Non-fiction can be journalistic, essays, or personal memoirs.

Response Time

Our typical response time is 60 days. If you have not received notification within 90 days, please feel free to inquire about the status of your submission.

Simultaneous Submissions

Because we are swift in our response time, we do not accept simultaneous submissions.


Unfortunately, at the present time, we cannot offer compensation to writers.


We will acquire First Time Electronic Publishing Rights. You will maintain all other rights after we publish your writing. We also retain the right to publish your writing indefinitely in the future in anthologies or in any other medium. All writing will remain in our archive. Please contact us if you would like your work removed at any point.
