Today, as I put the stamps on most of the very popular Issue 17s fixing to be mailed, we’re open to submissions again. The details, which can be found on our submissions page , are basically this: paste up to five of your best poems and/or the best story you’ve got under 3,000 words into the body of an email, along with a short third person bio, and click send. We’d also love to receive submissions of cover art, if you’re a talented photographer who works in black and white.
We’ve also got a contest. as always, and the theme is fathers. Do with the theme what you will. Happy, sad, mournful, emo, how much he loves you, how much you hate him. Write a poem about the Founding Fathers. Hell, write a story about my dad (oh, and if you find him, mention that in the email, would you?). Just make it good. $20 to best poem, $20 to best story. The deadline and submission guidelines are the same as for general submissions, but also mention you want your work considered for the contest.
That’s all I got. Good luck to everyone!
