Ends on April 1, 2022

A generous gift from the Villena-Aldama Foundation provides BreakBread Magazine with the opportunity to present the first Villena-Aldama Art & Writing Contest. 

The contest offers a $250 prize to winners in each genre the magazine publishes: fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and art/hybrid forms. Winners will be announced in June 2022 with their work featured in the Spring 2023 of the magazine.

Guidelines


Creatives under the age of 25 by May 2022 are invited to submit work in the genres of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and art/hybrid forms between the dates of Jan. 1, 2022 and Mar. 31, 2022.

Contest entry is free.

Submissions must adhere to BreakBread Magazine’s general submission guidelines with one exception. Unlike our general submissions, those for the Villena-Aldama contest must be submitted with no identifying information.

Submitters will only be considered for the Villena-Aldama prize in one genre.

Selection Process


BreakBread’s selection process abides by the Code of Ethics developed by the Council of Literary Magazines and Press (CLMP): “The Community of Literary Magazines and Presses believes that ethical contests serve our shared goal: to connect writers and readers by publishing exceptional writing. Intent to act ethically, clarity of guidelines, and transparency of process form the foundation of an ethical contest. To that end, we agree:
to conduct our contests as ethically as possible and to address any unethical behavior on the part of our readers, judges, or editors;
to provide clear and specific contest guidelines—defining conflict of interest for all parties involved; and
to make the mechanics of our selection process available to the public.”


All general submissions received by BreakBread Magazine between January 1, 2022 and March 31, 2022 are eligible for consideration.


Finalists will be nominated by editorial staff, and contest winners will be selected by the board members of BreakBread Literacy Project.

Conflicts of Interest


Previous submitters are welcome to submit to the contest. BreakBread staff and volunteers, their family members, and their current and former students are ineligible for the Villena-Aldama Prize.


Breakbread Submission Guidelines

BreakBread only accepts original, unpublished work by creatives under the age of 25.

 (Unfortunately, if you have turned 25, you are no longer eligible.)

If you are new to publishing your work, and need assistance with Submittable, please email us at help@breakbreadproject.org. 

BreakBread only accepts submissions through our Submittable page. 

Pen-and-paper submissions are only accepted from young creatives in detention facilities. Those submissions should be sent to: The BreakBread Literacy Project, #252, 716 North Ventura Road, Oxnard, CA 93030. 

All young creatives whose work is accepted for publication will be asked to verify their age.
You may publish under a pen name, but we do not publish anonymous work. 

If you are under age 18, we must have permission from your parent/guardian to publish your work. 

Creatives are limited to one submission per genre, per submission period.

BreakBread does not publish erotica or fanfiction. 

Submissions that are excerpts from longer works must be fully realized in their own right, and must “stand alone” as complete.   

Creatives must submit their own work and correspond directly with BreakBread staff. 

 BreakBread does not accept submissions made on behalf of young artists (for example, work submitted by parents, teachers, mentors or guardians). The only exception to this policy is for youth in detention facilities. Please email us at help@breakbreadproject.org for more information.

You agree to be added to the BreakBread email list upon submission to the magazine. You may unsubscribe from this list at any time. 

When using the submittable.com submissions program, please be sure to add BreakBread's general email address (help@breakbreadproject.org) to your spam blocker software so that you can receive correspondence from us. 

BreakBread retains First North American Serial Rights to published work. Those rights revert to the creative upon publication. 

Submissions are open May-August, September-December, and January-April with short closures (a week or less) between each submission period for updates to guidelines. 

We appreciate simultaneous submissions, but please let us know if your piece is accepted elsewhere so we can withdraw it from consideration.

BreakBread does not print previously published material. Work is considered previously published if it has been posted in any digital arena, including social media, online forums (Wattpad, blogs/website, Amazon Kindle). Work is considered previously published if it has been self-published, appeared in a literary magazine or Zine, published in a newspaper or newsletter. If you’re not sure whether your work is OK to submit, please use this handy list:
