BRUISE is an independent platform for developing experimental and digital publishing.

based in leicester, uk, we work with artists who write things.

we are interested in weird fictions, long-form writing, essays, poetry and texts that operate across different media.


our aims are to develop:

~ ALTERNATIVE PUBLISHING MODELS

~ DIVERSE NEW VOICES IN FICTION

~ ARTIST/WRITERS COMMUNITY IN LEICESTER

~ NEW INTERACTIVE EXHIBITIONS AND EVENTS


we are now open for SUBMISSIONS and PROJECT PROPOSALS. We are keen to work on new collaborations and produce new ideas.

we accept submissions from artists, writers and institutions. please submit via email.

we will never charge submission/admin fees.
