    Read our full submission guidelines at http://armarolla.com/submit/

    Deadline for Submissions: December 31, 2017

We anticipate that most of the text-based work we publish will not exceed 7,500 words, but we will consider longer work of truly exceptional quality. 45th Parallel’s submissions period runs from October – March. For more on our submissions guidelines check out our website: http://45thparallelmag.com/submissionguidelines.

  13. UPDATE

    Metonym has extended its deadline for submissions until October 31, 2017.

  14. Strange Ways Magazine is now accepting submissions for its inaugural issue!

    Strange Ways Magazine is a platform for talented and thoughtful people to collectively give shape to a single theme through a variety of mediums. Each issue of the magazine will be an eclectic collection of work in a mix of both traditional print and modern web format that iterates around the chosen theme.

    For this issue, the theme is “local mythology.” We are looking for contributions that in some way relate to that theme in the form of poetry, fiction, essays, book reviews, film reviews, drawings, videos, music, paintings, photographs, incantations, invocations, illustrations, scholarship, and the guts of other magazines (fashioned into ornate jewelry or otherwise splayed about). We have no preconceived notion about the boundaries of where the theme begins and where it ends, and we look forward to exploring that together.

    At Strange Ways Magazine, content is king and authors are revered; we are merely the stewards in the corner with glue all over our faces. We would be honored if you would consider submitting something for possible inclusion in our first issue and are happy to work with you to materialize something for the magazine. Please reach out to us with ideas and/or complete submissions at submissions@strangewaysmag.com. Our only ask is that polished drafts are submitted sometime before October 31, 2017.

    Publishing guidelines:

    Short stories / Essays: Please limit your contributions to 5,000 words or less. We only ask that the work demonstrates adherence to the issue’s theme.

    Poetry: For the first issue, we’re aiming for shorter, snappier pieces. Basically, don’t send us an Iliad-length epic and you’re fine.

    We aim to respond to all submissions within a week, but don’t be surprised or discouraged if you don’t hear back in a month or so! You will receive a response, we promise.

    Strange Ways No. 1 should hit shelves before the New Year. If you’re a punctual bunch, anyhow…

    Questions? Reach out to contact@strangewaysmag.com.

    -Race & Secularism
    -Indigenous Feminism & Secularism
    -Islamic Feminism & Secularism
    -International Secularism

    Of course, we don’t always know what we want until we see it, so if your writing approaches feminism and secularism, we’d love to see it. It’s also worth noting, we the editors believe the best submissions explore these issues obliquely, with subtlety, and push beyond easy stereotypes.

    We’re looking for short fiction up to 3500 words, flash fiction up to 1000 words, poetry (no poems longer than two pages), and creative nonfiction up to 3500 words. You are welcome to submit in one category for this issue only. We are open to experimental styles as well as writing with more traditional narrative focuses. Above all we want your literary approaches to secularism and feminism. International writers who write in English are welcome—and translations are welcome on a case-by-case basis. Please query us with your translation project.

  53. SUCCOR is an annual literary journal accepting fiction submissions for its inaugural issue.

    Succor is interested in stories that speak to the human condition. Clear, fresh prose is greatly admired. A strong dramatic arc is appreciated. Work that engages elements of genre, that pushes and breaks boundaries and norms, that surprises, is welcome; but formulaic genre fiction, while entertaining, isn’t a good fit. Similarly, very experimental work is outside Succor‘s scope.

    Please send one short story of up to 10,000 words–though, frankly, somewhere south of 7,000 seems much more reasonable–or up to three short-short stories–less than a thousand words each–to succorpressfiction@gmail.com. In the subject line of your email, please include the title of your story followed by your name. Paste your work into the body of the email. Attachments will not be read. You may include a short cover letter; please include a print-ready third-person contributor’s note of ~50 words to be used on acceptance.

    Work must not have been published elsewhere previously, either in print or online. Simultaneous submissions are welcome, but please notify of acceptance elsewhere by emailing succorpressfiction@gmail.com with “withdrawal” followed by your story’s title in the subject line. Submit only once per reading period unless asked otherwise.

    Payment is two copies of the issue in which the author’s work appears.

  61. Science Fantasy: Call for stories and illustrations

    Stellar vessels flying in the depths of unknown space, but they are driven by fairies. On far away planets, chivalric orders and futuristic technology coexist. Besides the Otherworld of Sidhes and ancient gods might well be another planet, and the Trojan war is waged between intergalactic empires and kingdoms. Welcome to the world of Science Fantasy, where the frontiers between Fantasy and Science Fiction become permeable.

    For its third issue, Fantasy Art and Studies invites you to submit your best Science Fantasy stories and to reinvent the limits of the universe and the origins of what we call magic.

    Your stories (6-7 pages maximum), in English or French, are to be sent in .doc format, Times New Roman 12 points, single line spacing, before July 1st 2017 at fantasyartandstudies@outlook.com.
    If you are an illustrator, you can also submit your works in .JPEG format. We are always looking for new talents.

  62. Profane publishes poems, essays and stories. Our current reading period runs through July 31st.

    Our aim is simple: to publish good writing. To us, good writing is the sort that you find yourself turning over and over again in your head, hours and days and weeks after you’ve read it. Good writing is the writing that worms itself into your brain and won’t leave.

  63. Rat’s Ass Review is an online poetry magazine. Although our name might suggest that we are an outlet for grumpy, vulgar men, the fact is that we publish about twice as much work by women as by men.

    During the first 100 days of the Trump Administration Rat’s Ass Review is publishing an ongoing collection of political poems under the heading Such an Ugly Time. We generally post new poems twice a month.

    We are also reading submissions for our summer issue, and will be doing so until mid-April. Like most venues we want freshness, originality, grace, wisdom. However, we also are a place where you may be able to place that totally oddball, rank, sarcastic little gem that you are almost embarrassed to have written, the one you don’t want your grandmother to see, but that you are privately proud as hell to have spawned.

  64. Brickplight is an online poetry journal that exists to promote the exploration of unique identities through daring poetry. We are currently accepting submissions for Issue 6. The reading period ends April 25th with the issue scheduled to be published at the beginning of May 2017.

  65. Opportunity to further your writing passions and have your informative articles published with a brand new online publication.

    This journalistic publication defines itself by three distinct categories: politics, religion and sex. A category for personal stories also exists.

    For those interested in writing, ensure your articles are specific to one (or more) of those categories and are no longer than 750 words.

    Having shifted from newspapers to digital media, it’s more important than ever, that online platforms go about providing journalistic discourse in the best possible way – verifying facts, critiquing, holding people accountable, and giving voice to intellects who seek to express their valid opinions.

    If you are interested in writing for this fresh online publication, send your replies and ideas to tendler24@gmail.com and your articles may be some of the first to be published on the website.

  69. The XYZ’s Anthologies

    Two Current Calls for Submissions
    ONE Seeking personal essays on the theme of transitions. The theme of transitions can be broadly interpreted.
    What do we mean by transitions? Perhaps your politics have changed. Perhaps you bought a new dog leash, graduated, got fired, moved, retired, got old, received a terminal diagnosis, became a parent, lost a loved one, had a sex change, or something entirely different.

    Your essay will induce the reader to develop new insights about an aspect related to transitions. Readers don’t want words: readers want emotional and cognitive experiences. They want to laugh, cry, remember, think, cheer, gulp, smile through tears, clutch their chest and feel alive.
    Be honest. Layer meaning, and don’t bore the reader. You will manipulate your reader to have an experience.

    Essays will be 500 to 3000 words. Attach in WORD. Title your submission EXACTLY as follows. Transitions, Last Name: Title of your work. So if the essay title is ‘Morning Cup’ and my last name is Fitzgerald, the submission would list this as the title: Transitions, Fitzgerald, Morning Cup.

    TWO Seeking artful first-person essays up to 4000 words for an anthology that explores the quest for inclusiveness and the effects of the creation of “the other.” How can we counter hate and bigotry? How can we deal with our own prejudices? Can individuals who come together with shared histories and culture celebrate that richness without fostering alienation? What happens to the other? How do we move away from racism, classism, and otherness? If God is love, why does religion often construct an other? How does society foster separation? How do we reach across the divide and what can happen when we do?

    To be published as print and ebook by Jack Walker Press (the XYZs anthology series). Reprints considered.

    Profits to be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center:
    It’s difficult to explore issues of gender, sexuality, age, race, political party, disability, and more without offending—so we often stay silent. Let’s try to understand otherness and tell our stories. We may risk offending, yet seek to expand love and tolerance. We seek stories of personal experience and inner explorations: hopefully essays will have at least two threads (what happened/first-person exploration for meaning). Any quotations or academic inclusions (not necessary) should include endnotes for fact checking. Anger is okay: Hate not okay. Make us laugh, cry, and think. Help us to love rather than judge. It’s okay if you don’t have all the answers. Small insights that honor the complexity of truth are preferred to sermons with all the answers.

    Submissions accepted thought December 31, 2017. Working Title ‘Exclusion and the Other.’

    Essays will be 500 to 3000 words. Attach in WORD. Title your submission EXACTLY as follows, Exclusion, Last Name: Title of your work. So if the essay title is ‘Morning Cup’ and my last name is Fitzgerald, the submission would list this as the title: Exclusion, Fitzgerald, Morning Cup

  71. Call for Submissions!
    Theme: Technology
    Deadline: February 28th, 2017

    The theme for the upcoming issue is “Technology.” Interpret this as you wish; technology is a word that has come to encompass a vast amount of human culture and history. Writing itself could be viewed as a form of technology, but we want to get more specific than that. We want to know how technology affects writers, readers, and the world at large: how it transforms, entrances, and empowers its users, as well as how it can be used to discriminate, erase, and oppress some of the most valuable parts of our collective humanity. As always, the more experimental the work, the better it may fit with Obra / Artifact’s editorial ethos. The deadline for this issue is February 28th, 2017, with a tentative release date set for March 31st, 2017. Check out our updated submission guidelines if you have questions about what we’re looking for (and how it should be formatted), and don’t hesitate to contact us via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram if your curiosities are still unsatisfied.

  82. Call For Submissions: A3 Review December Contest

    The Theme: Orange Things

    The Deadline: 24th December 2016

    Prizes: The two winning entries from each month’s contest will be published in Issue #6 of The A3 Review (the unique arts magazine that folds like a map). Winners will also receive contributor copies and Writing Maps goodies. Three overall winners of the September till February contests will receive cash prizes of £150 for 1st; £75 for 2nd; and £50 for 3rd.

    Entry fee is $5 (approx £3) per submission. Multiple submissions welcome. All genres welcome. All writers and artists welcome. Entry only accepted via our Submittable page: https://writingmaps.submittable.com/submit/62655/contest-34-dec-2016-orange-things

    The Contest:
    At first glance orange seems straightforward: the fruit or the colour. But it’s far more resonant. The word was first recorded in the 13th Century and derived from ancient languages. It’s one of the few words which has no direct rhyme in English, only half-rhymes. Think about this diversity when creating your pieces. As the Hemingway quote goes on to say: “write one true sentence, and then go on from there.”

    Write about an orange, the heft of it, the act of peeling, the smell of the zest and taste of the fruit, the sticky juice on fingers and chins. Who is eating the orange, why and where? Write about the colour orange and its associations with places – an orange beach under an orange sun with cool orange lollies! Write or draw the moods and situations associated with orange – warmth, fire, energy, danger. Dramatic situations with orange – warning signs and hi-visibility clothes. Explore the association of orange and religion – the Irish Protestant links with Orange in France, the symbolic nature of the colour for Hindus and Buddhists. The Dutch House of Orange. Prison uniforms in the US. Include some of nature’s orange food – sweet potatoes, carrots, pumpkins, turmeric and saffron, mangoes, apricots and satsumas at Christmas. For a different kind of inspiration, look at the use of orange by the Pre-Raphaelites or the Impressionist painters of 19th Century France.

    We welcome short stories, flash fiction, poetry, comics, graphic stories, a snippet of memoir, photographs, illustrations, and any combination of the above. The only restriction is a word-limit of 150 and images should fit well into an A6 panel.

    Good luck and we look forward to seeing your work!

  90. Descansos, or roadside memorials, mark an interrupted journey; the spot where a drunk driver struck a beloved son, or where a fatigued mother fell asleep at the wheel and veered herself and her family into eternity.

    While the word “descanso” means simply, rest, in Spanish, it has come to represent all kinds of memorials that mark the place where an intended path came to an unintended end. Descansos take many forms: from crosses festooned with ribbons and pinwheels, to a shattered motorcycle helmet nailed to a tree; from a collection of teddy bears affixed to a roadside fence, to a stone alter filled with photographs, candles, and milagros; to a stark white bicycle anchored in concrete.

    Consider the descansos of the heart, the smell, or song, or thought that brings us back for a moment to a time or a person now lost.

    While born of grief and loss, descansos memorialize love, and as such, represent the terrible beauty we all contend with as creatures who, by living, are condemned to die.

    Darkhouse Books is looking for flash fiction, traditional short stories, poetry, and essays that embrace the spirit of the descanso. There are no restrictions on genre. We just want your best work.

    Please limit your submission to 3000 words or less, and format appropriately (1-inch margins, 12-point Times New Roman font). Submissions that do not follow these guidelines or match the theme will not be read. Previously published work will be considered, provided the publication date is prior to March of 2016, and the other publisher does not still have an exclusive for it.

    Authors will share equally in fifty percent of the royalties. The submission deadline is midnight (PST), December 31st, 2016.

    Please send submissions to submissions@darkhousebooks.com.

    More details at: http://darkhousebooks.com/submissions/

  92. James and I were together for 3 years and lived together for two until he was moved to another state for job in March of last year.Sept was the last time we spent time together.We went for a vacation and had a fabulous time,not knowing it would be the last time I would see him.He stopped calling Nov,and just sent me a text saying he did not want to talk.I did not pursue it because I thought he just needed some space.March came rolling in,and I found out he got married.How could it be?I found out,shortly before we started dating,he was communicating with a girl from another country and made a trip there once and proposed to her.He made another trip in 2015.She finally came to the country Jan of this year and I figured the reason he dumped me was when he found out she was approved to come to the US.I made the huge mistake of going to the social media and found the woman’s posts of their wedding and trips,etc.That hurt me more than I could imagine.It has been 8 months since I’ve seen him but just can’t get him out of my head.Honestly,I feel very jealous of his now.I wake up in the morning feeling nonexistent,empty and wishing I don’t wake up so I don’t have to feel the same pain I could never get accustomed to.The deceit and the fact that I was used and hurt so bad that I don’t think I could move past it.I decide to seek the help of a psychologist because I knew I was losing it. As I searched the internet, I found cases similar to mine and some,even worse.But all of them sang praises of a man whom helped them restoring their broken relationships,marriages and family…Dr Kene Dilli. I was supprised and decided to give it a try as I contacted his email I found in those testimonies; kenedillitemples AT yahoo DOT com. Behold,after doing all he instructed,he sent me a parcel plus the steps needed as reguarding the parcel.Now,I have got back my lover…James,and he has filed for a divorce with the other lady he married. #HappyToBeBackWithJames.

  93. The Museum of Science Fiction is pleased to announce an open call for submissions for short science fiction stories to be included in Catalysts, Explorers, and Secret Keepers, an anthology of science fiction showcasing how women have been an integral part of science fiction as authors, as readers, and as characters for more than a century.

    Our team at the Museum of Science Fiction believes an anthology of science fiction is the perfect take-home exhibit. Many museums publish books to provide context and background to highlight their special, temporary exhibits. We’ve decided to build on this principle and create a curated science fiction anthology as an exhibit meant to be taken home, experienced at your own pace, and shared.

    Catalysts, Explorers & Secret Keepers will feature cover art by Julie Dillon and a mix of original and reprinted works by Eleanor Arnason, Catherine Asaro, Monica Byrne, N.K. Jemisin, Nancy Kress, Naomi Kritzer, Karen Lord, Seanan McGuire, Sarah Pinsker, Kiini Ibura Salaam, Carrie Vaughn, Jane Yolen, and Sarah Zettel. To help round out the take-home exhibit, we will also publish several short stories collected through this call for submissions.

    Submissions will be accepted until December 1, 2016 at 11:59PM EST.

    This call for submissions for Catalysts, Explorers & Secret Keepers is made possible by funds raised through our Kickstarter campaign (active until November 1, 2016 at 11:59PM EST).

    We are looking for short science fiction pieces 2,000 – 5,000 words in length that celebrate women with agency in science fiction. We want to see stories about women who take initiative, who take matters into their own hands, who can make changes. Women with agency includes catalysts who spark changes and challenge societal norms, explorers hunting for something different, and secret keepers operating behind the scenes. To be clear, we’re not just looking for stories about women who kick butt or standard trope reversals, and we are still interested in stories that pay homage to classic works.

    Anyone may submit work to this call for submissions. Our list of solicited contributors is entirely made up of women, but we’ll gladly publish work written by non-females so long as it fits our theme.

    Authors of original fiction published in Catalysts, Explorers & Secret Keepers will receive at least the SFWA-standard pro-rate of US$0.06 per word. The pay rate will be higher if the Kickstarter campaign funding Catalysts, Explorers & Secret Keepers reaches its first stretch goal.

    All authors published in this take-home exhibit will be invited to discuss their work as presenters and panelists in late summer 2017 at Escape Velocity, the Museum of Science Fiction’s annual celebration of all things science fiction.

    Please format your manuscript according to the Shunn manuscript format for short stories (found here: http://www.shunn.net/format/story.html). Please use italics rather than underlining when you intend for something to be italics—underlining is a holdover from outdated printing traditions. Please submit your work in .DOC or .DOCX format.

  94. Submissions are now open for Operate in Your Faith, to be featured in November. This includes a month’s feature on the website and the social media accounts. Mainly interested in Christian poetry 500 words maximum. Manuscripts may be mailed or submitted online: http://www.operateinyourfaith.com/featured-writers. Email operateinyourfaith@gmail.com

  112. ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS

    We’re currently accepting submissions for Short Humor and Personal Essays. This is the Angry Dave Trading Post, not the Mommy Blog, so a sarcastic, sardonic tone works best. We like to look at the world through a cynical, yet funny, lens.

    HUMOR

    We’re looking for pieces that cover current events, pop culture, entertainment, relationships, religion, politics and lifestyle, in a satirical or humorous way.

    There is really no set rule on length, but generally between 750-1500 words. If it’s funny and captivating, but doesn’t quite fit that mold, that’s fine too. It’s also not Buzzfeed, or the Huffington Post. Not only do we not have anywhere near their audience, we don’t give a shit what Kanye thinks about Clinton’s email server.

    The style tends to be satirical, snarky or otherwise irritated, but the humor still has to be there. Nothing sexist or racist. Political humor is fine as long as it’s not mean-spirited.

    ESSAYS

    Essays can be really any length as long as they’re interesting but generally no more than 2,500 words. Just remember, this isn’t The Atlantic. We’re not doing long-form journalism here. These are short essays that have a strong personal opinion. They can be on any subject as long as you’re passionate about it and the reader is entertained.

  113. InTandem is a quarterly publication both online and in print, that fuses social and environmental issues with the arts. It aims to make these issues more accessible and relevant to new audiences through the arts.

We are currently working on InTandem, Ethno England and Tandem Festival. Tandem Collective is registered as a Community Interest Company in the UK.

    Volume Four of InTandem will be published in October 2016 and will have the theme:

    Coming Up for Air: Ongoing Issues of Air Pollution in the 21st Century.

    Submissions will close on Friday 30th September 2016. Please email all questions and submissions to n.brown@tandemfestival.com

  114. Conium Press seeks fiction focused on the theme “Fragmented.” Guest edited by Melissa Reddish, author of My Father is an Angry Storm Cloud (Tailwinds Press, 2015), The Distance Between Us (Red Bird Chapbooks, 2013), and the forthcoming novella Girl & Flame (Conium Press, 2016). If your piece is selected by the guest editor, it will be published as a limited-run micro-chapbook for distribution alongside Girl & Flame. The published author will also receive a complimentary copy of Girl & Flame.

    You may interpret the theme loosely, but your story should involve some form of fragmentation.

    2,000 words or fewer. No reading fee. All submissions must be received between July 1st and July 15th, 2016. Visit our website for complete guidelines.

  118. SATIREandMORE call for Submissions:

    We are a new blog trying to do our part to alleviate the serious shortage of humour and satire in today’s world. Our goal is to provide entertainment and information, primarily in the form of satire and humour, for the benefit of readers and authors.

    We are seeking writers of quality material to contribute blogs in the form of articles, sketches, critiques, short stories, plays, screenplays and other approved formats. Although we welcome writers from all over the world, material must be in the English language. We are looking for originality from writers who know how to spell correctly and proofread their work carefully.

    Registration is required for individuals who wish to become blog contributors, but not for those who merely want to submit comments. You must be at least 18 years of age in order to register and to submit blogs. Please review our website to have an idea of what type of material we are seeking, particularly the following pages: WELCOME PAGE, ABOUT US, and SUBMISSION GUIDELINES.

    We believe in freedom of expression and the exchange of ideas and different opinions, and offer writers the opportunity to express their creativity, but do not compensate blog contributors as we provide all content on our website free of charge.

    We look forward to seeing your work, and encourage university creative writing students and others as well as established writers.

  119. Why are some able to push through excruciating agony while others are not? How is it possible that a monk can calmly sit in a cross-legged position while his skin burns off the bone? Can our stories of pain and healing help each other? And if so, can sharing these stories help challenge miscast narratives surrounding a sensation so integral to life?

    ENDPAIN seeks your help in answering these questions. We’re looking for high quality non-fiction narratives from writers, photographers, and artists of every stripe. Stories can be funny, horribly dark, or anything in between. But all should be intimate, emotionally honest, and moving. And all should help us to further understand something universally experienced and uniformly under discussed—pain.

    Submit your work at endpain.com/tell-us-your-story and sign up for our newsletter to learn more about what we’ll be rolling out over the coming months.

    There are no strict guidelines with respect to form or content.

    Essentially, we’re open to the “profane” (however you want to define it), but we don’t require it.

    In addition to general submissions, we’re thrilled to announce The Profane Nonfiction Prize, judged by Brevity editor and author Dinty W. Moore. The winner will receive $1,000 and a blurb from the contest judge, and finalists will be announced and considered for publication.

    But in all seriousness, we seek to take back publishing from an establishment dominated by both big businesses and out-of-touch academics. Write what you want! Are you constantly frustrated with thoughts of how you could outdo a lot of what is widely circulated by big book companies and Ivory Tower journals? Here’s your chance to prove your worth.

    We accept all pieces of writing you have–short stories, flash fiction, novellas, novels, poems, essays, reviews, you name it. We also encourage submissions of original artwork for our interiors and covers.

    NOW ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS FOR OUR SECOND ISSUE! This issue’s theme will be noir–noir fiction, noir poetry, articles about noir topics, you name it–and don’t forget that noir is more than detective stories. Show us your dark, your discouraged, your hopeless, but also your light at the end of the tunnel.

  134. The Papermachine is now accepting submissions for its inaugural issue! We are an online multi-genre publication committed to inspiring conversation about the human experience as explored through the creation of thoughtful artwork, writing, and music. We’re dedicated to the idea that this art should be shared, discussed, and written about, and that arts journalism itself should be as compelling as the subject matter it explores.

    We’re seeking to publish between 3 and 5 works of literary short fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry or essays for the first issue. We’re particularly interested in writing that examines the experience of a character’s or writer’s relation to a particular place.

    Send submissions for consideration to: submissions@thepapermachine.com.

If you want to support Tanka Journal, consider buying our paperback issues as they become available, or ask us how you can help.

  136. Call for haiku:

    The art of Haiku spans centuries and extends itself to all countries, originally revered by Japanese poets and now enjoyed by the whole world. Haiku themes are traditionally based in nature, but today all themes are practiced and accepted.

    Although it is common to find constrained forms of Haiku, counting morae and marking the kigo etc., 50 Haikus looks only to the content of the poem. We want short lines with meaning. Poems should say a great deal in what amounts to a handful of words.

    50 Haikus is a literary journal featuring only Haiku poetry in open form. Each issue contains exactly 50 Haiku poems by established and emerging poets.
    It is interesting to note that the word Haiku is both singular and plural. We selected the “50 Haikus” name because our editor’s son always called his first poetry book, his “Haikus Book” (Hi-Kuz) and that was adorable enough to remember.

  142. Syntax and Salt publishes 13 magical realism pieces a season. We are accepting submissions for our first issue until March 18, 2016. The issue will be published April 1, 2016.

    Syntax and Salt pays $10USD by PayPal for each story, regardless of length, with the exception of one Editor’s Choice story per issue, which will garner a $25USD payment via PayPal. Payment is guaranteed within 10 business days of the current issue going live. http://syntaxandsalt.com/submit

    Here is how you win our hearts and minds:

    *Magical Realism
    *Stories that take up 3500 words or less
    *Proofread, polished manuscripts
    *Old stories told in a new way
    *New stories told in an old way
    *Sad endings that don’t rely on gimmicks or shock value
    *Happy endings that hurt a little bit
    *Beautiful prose and well developed plot

    Thank you, but no thank you to:

    *Violence for the sake of violence
    *We’re good with profanity, but it needs to fit the story
    *Poetry – the thing is, we love it, but we’re not there yet
    *Rape stories are vital stories. 1 in 4 women report being raped, and men are often silent victims of assault. However, many of the rape stories we’ve read in our careers as writers and slushers and editors do not explore the nuances of character available, and use the act of rape for shock value or to create a victimized character who can be saved.

    Deadline: March 18, 2016

  201. #PurgeYourSoul and submit your work to Soul Vomit. Raise money and awareness for an important cause!

    For 2015, the main topic is domestic violence reversed. This year, we want to focus on female abusers targeting men and emotional abuse, manipulation, guilt and fear tactics, mind-games, and the effects that can have on victims.

    Please note that we’ll still consider & accept stories that aren’t 100% on topic! Raising awareness is the top priority!

    What we’re looking for:

    Poetry, short stories, prose pieces, and essays about domestic violence (emotional abuse, manipulation, etc.). Those who have been through emotional abuse with someone who utilizes mind-games and fear tactics to manipulate and coerce know that this kind of abuse is extremely damaging to the victim’s mental health, sometimes for the rest of his or her life.

    The purpose in publishing this year’s anthology is to raise awareness in the general population about the effects of emotional abuse and that women can be abusive, too.

    Short story submissions should be no longer than 5,000 words.

    Essays should be kept at 3,000 words or less.

    Prose and poetry should be 4 pages or less.

    Art and photography must be at 300dpi/ppi resolution or higher in order to be printed. Please note that at this time we are sticking to black and white interior printing for the sake of keeping book prices reasonable, so make sure it looks good in black and white!

  213. In the King Arthur mythology, it is said the the wizard Merlin lives backwards through time. But what if Merlin was actually advising multiple reincarnations of King Arthur during various different points, and places, in time and history?

    For example, Arthur as a 15th century pirate king, sailing the Caribbean and uniting with several other pirates, with Merlin as his first mate? (note: someone already committed to this idea/story)

    King Arthur as a Japanese warlord who unifies several clans in Sengoku period (Warring States period) in Japan (circa 1467 – 1603), with Merlin, a Buddhist monk or Shinto priest, as his trusted advisor.

    King Arthur as an American Indian chief who unites several tribes to fight off European settlers in the early 1700s, with Merlin as a medicine man.

    King Arthur in modern times, uniting his people and fighting guerilla-warfare style against an oppressive regime (Eastern European Communists, Middle-Eastern Taliban, etc.), with Merlin as his number-one lieutenant.

    Or perhaps even a story about King Arthur living in a dystopian future, uniting the people to fight back against an oppressive government, with Merlin as a robot, computer, or some sort of electronic device.

    Choose any of the above concepts, or propose your own: King Arthur in ancient Greece, King Arthur in ancient Egypt, King Arthur in Tang Dynasty China, King Arthur as a Norse Viking explorer, King Arthur in a futuristic zombie apocalypse, etc.

  214. The reading period for the upcoming issue of Badlands Literary Journal lasts from Jan 1 to Apr 30, 2015. Writers, poets, and visual artists who wish to appear in this innovative magazine should submit their best, cutting-edge work through its portal at https://badlandsliteraryjournal.submittable.com/submit. Sense of Place, Sense of Community stands as the theme for this issue. Works that speak to this theme will receive special consideration.

    In particular, Badlands maintains a dedication to immigrant and indigenous voices and is especially interested in work crafted in non-English languages, whether Cahuilla or Ojibwa, Spanish or Tagalog, that lends itself to side-by-side publication of original and translation. Also, the journal upholds the proposition that the Coachella Valley and its adjoining regions are domains worthy of on-the-page portrayal and are attracted to creative efforts that explore its urban and wild land locales, such as the cityscapes of Palm Springs and Cabazan, or the landscapes of Joshua Tree National Park and the Salton Sea State Recreation Area. Above all, Badlands strives to make a place for voices overlooked by other journals in its pages; submitters who argue such points in their cover letters can often sway the Badlands staff toward acceptance.

    Wait are you waiting for? You wouldn’t be reading this unless you yearned to earn the eternal glory of small press publication. Send something now!

  224. After a 4 year absence, WritingRaw.com is back and looking for submissions! To all of our new readers we say welcome; and to those returning, we apologize for vanishing without notice. You may be asking yourself: “What the HELL happened? I spent years with you and you dumped me like yesterday’s trash. No phone call, no email…” For this, we are sorry. There is no better explanation except to say that life took over and suddenly became complicated and I lost my creative spirit for a while. Well, guess what, I’ve found it again. It took some time and soul searching to realize that my truest love in the world is the written word, and nothing can ever change that – no matter what complications occur. So with that said, let us begin again. To quote the immortal words of T. S. Eliot: “So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.” With that being said, baby, I’m ready to dance in the creative light of words again.

    To those who don’t really know the whole concept of WritingRaw, let me explain briefly. When we first started in 2007, we saw a little hole in the writing world that needed filling. With the disappearance of markets that published unsolicited manuscripts, WritingRaw was created to provide an outlet for any writer who wished to have their work “published” online for the world to see and to help build a name for themselves. Our goal was to create something different – a thought-provoking online magazine dedicated to all forms of the written word without judgment. What appeared within the “pages” of WritingRaw was exactly what the author wanted. This open format allowed writers to think outside the box and create what THEY wanted in content and style. Thus, the “Raw” aspect of the site. Unfortunately, while WritingRaw cannot compensate authors monetarily for accepted pieces (this is all a labor of love and maintained through our own time and pockets), we believe that the exposure an author receives is compensation enough. In this day of vanishing literary markets, the actual building of a name – in our humble opinion – is just as valuable.

We are looking for writers and visual artists to submit work that pushes the limits of their craft and adds to an exhibition of progressive ideas from all over the world. Every issue is designed around a specific theme so artists will create new work directly connected to that theme. Please see details below:

    The theme for Issue #3 is: Memory

    We are looking for people to write about the fluidity of memory and how it shapes lives. How does the past influence the future? What is the distinction between reality and fantasy? Consider the following realms:

    ~ The dichotomy between reality and fantasy within memory

    ~ False Glorification/misrepresentation of moments, ages, years and eras “before it was so bad”. Were things ever better? What authenticity or lack of authenticity exists in this type of nostalgia?

    ~ False memories

    ~ How memories can traumatize a person and shape their future experiences/decision making or mold identity

    ~ Selective memory as a defense mechanism

    ~ The collective memory of the human experience and consciousness: Is there a universal memory that all humans tap into? Is this universal memory a part of our dreamscape, subconscious thoughts, impulses or our genetic predispositions?

    ~ Memories of past lives

    Submission Requirements:

    ~ Send by January 5, 2015
    ~ Writers: No more than two single spaced, typed pages (1500 words)
