The Literary Bohemian
From the Editor
The Literary Bohemian is the final destination for first-class, travel-inspired writing that transports the reader, non-stop, to Elsewhere. We are only interested in pieces that move us. Cannongate Books, UK describes us like this (from their website:) Words & wanderlust is indeed the perfect strapline for The Literary Bohemian , the hippest online destination for travel-inspired poetry, “postcard” prose and snappy reviews. Updated with (almost) monthly issues, the site is bursting with intriguing content and boasts design to die for with retro luggage labels, compasses and yellowing airmail paper all making an appearance. Not content with their literary offerings, the team of witty curators behind The Literary Bohemian have also added a facility for sharing photos of those unintentionally humorous signs we all seem to encounter on our travels. And then there’s the lodging facility for writers-on-the-move, offering ideas of author-friendly accommodation in cities all over the world. With all this and more on offer The Literary Bohemian is proving that armchair travel is totally last-century. Now it’s all about getting online, on board and on the way to Elsewhere, as the site’s team so charmingly (no irony here, sorry*) put it.
poetry (three to five poems, no more than 100 lines each) postcard prose (up to two pieces, no more than 300 words each) travelogue (one piece up to 1200 words) -Please refrain from using the following words: amazing, ancient, beautiful, charming, fabulous, lovely, magical, rich, romantic, timeless or undiscovered unless you are being ironic. Literary Bohemians are more impressed with where you’ve been than where you’ve published. Include a short bio that includes publishing history (limit: five literary magazines, journals or books) and/or places you’ve recently visited with your submission. We might have to edit your bio for length, and we will only list Pushcart prizes you’ve won. A good bio: I have had works published in You’ll Poke Your Eye Out, No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service, and The Fast and Not-So-Furious. An Australian by birth, my travel credentials include escaping injuries while running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain, and sled dog racing in Alaska. I’ve also been to most of the contiguous United States. I hope you enjoy the chocolate cake, which I enclose, forthwith.
