Special Issue: Literary Horror will mingle with our usual literary fare in the October 16th issue. Send your creepy and dark flash fiction, prose poetry and art. Not quite sure if it is horror? Send it along. Broken and twisted misfits are welcome. Deadline: October 1st.
Flash Fiction: Please send one piece of flash fiction of no more than 800 words to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a short bio, and do not send previously published work. Do send lyrical prose, wondrous prose, fierce prose. Do send words that successfully skate on the edge of realities. Arresting prose lodged in one reality is also well received.
Prose Poetry: Please send up to three prose poems to email@example.com. Include a short bio, and do not send previously published work. Do send lyrical poems and surprising poems. Do send poems that unravel, ending with a lump in the editor’s throat. DO NOT SEND POETRY BROKEN INTO VERSE LINES.
Art: Please send one JPG image to firstname.lastname@example.org. The editor appreciates acrylics, pen-and-ink line art, pencil drawings, collage, watercolor, experimental, impressionistic and abstract pieces, both black-and-white and color. The editor will pass on photography. Please send a brief description of the medium of the piece. Artists are encouraged to send a website link where more works are showcased.
Rights: We ask for first North American Serial Rights.
Responses to writers will be quick because the editor is busy and utilizes every minute of her day. Note: Respect will be given when respect is received; submissions shot to the editor without an accompanying few words will not be read. Multiple submissions will not be read.
Only send your best work. Proofread. Work with sloppy errors makes the editor think you don’t care or don’t know any better.
Send your work in docx, doc or in the body of the email.
