BAHR Magazine is an online literary creative platform dedicated to amplifying the work of writers, artists, and creatives of all kinds. Based in South West Asia and North Africa, we accept submissions from around the world though we champion this region’s creators and prioritise their work. We particularly encourage those with marginalised identities to submit.
We accept and publish poetry, prose (short stories and essays), and inter/anti-genre writing. We actively encourage multilingual submissions but can only accept those working with Arabic and English at the moment though expanding into other languages in the near future. We aim to start accepting reviews, visual art, and other modes of expression very soon.
Please check our submission guidelines for more specifics and stay tuned for expansion announcements on our social media.
At BAHR, we refuse to platform any work that endangers our communities as well as other marginalised communities around the world. There is no room at BAHR for bigotry – be it sexism, racism, homophobia, abuse, transphobia, ableism, or classist sentiments of any kind. We reserve the right to publish accordingly. We also reserve the right to remove previously published work if its creator goes against these principles.
Authors and creators retain all rights to their work. If your work is republished elsewhere after BAHR, we only ask that you acknowledge its appearance here first.
