From Bricolage Magazine:  we are "open for submissions for 2014. Guidelines: http://www.bricolagemagazine.com/p/submissions.html. We are particularly keen on fiction, non-fiction, photography and art that is deeply linked to the part of the world you are from, bringing to the fore non-traditional stories and narrative techniques. " Bricolage usually responds within four weeks and began reading new submissions on January 1st.
