About Brain drip

Brain drip is an online Australian literary magazine. It's free to read and we accept unsolicited submissions. We publish short stories, poetry, creative essays and book reviews.

Here at Brain drip, we know it’s not easy starting something new, trying something different. We’re pretty darn excited by the challenge though! We love the idea of a writing forum that is accessible and open for everyone, looking at writing on its merits alone. That's why we don't charge you to submit work to us, we don't have any memberships, and we blind read all submissions. 

Brain drip: Australia's writing.

Brain drip is run by a small staff of dedicated volunteers.
