Review Guidelines

As our efforts to support Black lesbian and QWOC writers continue to grow, we are expanding our platform to amplify Black lesbian and QWOC writers in various ways. With that in mind, we are introducing The BLLC Review, a review blog devoted to writing for us, about us.

Join the Review Team
We value your perspectives and your commitment to Black lesbian and QWOC literature, and we’d be delighted to have you join our writing community as a reviewer. Please contact us for reviewer guidelines.

Author/Publisher Review Requests
If you have a book that you’d like the BLLC to review, contact us at with the subject line “Review Request.” We only review books by AND primarily about Black lesbians or QWOC. Please provide a brief summary (or tip sheet), an author bio, the word count, and book genre in the body of the email. Ebooks in multiple formats are preferred (ePub, mobi, PDF) because all BLLC reviewers do not use the same devices. Attach as many formats as you have available to your email.

Note: We do not pay for or charge for reviews. We reserve the right to reject titles that do not meet our quality standards for review.
