Use our contact form, or if you know the individual committee member you need, please scroll down to find their emails.

Please do get in touch if we can help you with anything, we do love to hear from you. Please do be patient for a response however, as we fit in doing things for the BFS around paid work, employment, families, writing etc. We do aim to get back to you as soon as we can, but sometimes it takes time.

Membership applications are transferred to our database a minimum of once a month, but that can mean a delay before you hear anything. You can find your membership number and renewal date on the monthly emailed bulletin. Links for the e-book publications archive are on the bottom of the bulletin.

We aim to send out paper publications four times a year, two Journals and two Horizons. These can be delayed by printing and post.

If you would like to submit work to The Journal, Horizons or the Art Competition or Short Story Competition please do so via those pages.
