1. Call for Submissions: Loose Change Magazine

Call For Submissions: Loose Change Magazine 

Submissions portal.  

Loose Change, a journal of new writing from the WonderRoot Center for Arts and Social Change in Atlanta, is relaunching in January with the sexy-smart, mesmerizing work of Eric Baus, Pam Brown, Laura Carter, Bhanu Kapil, Douglas A. Martin, Miranda Mellis, Deborah Poe, and Kate Schapira, among others, and is still accepting submissions. 

We are interested in work that comes out of various traditions to move them forward, break them apart, reinvent or explode them. We want familiar modes made new and strange forms that renew us. Please review our submission guidelines before sending your previously unpublished work. We only accept electronic submissions through our submissions manager. In addition to our regular issue, we are also accepting submissions for a special portfolio, “Sexted Up—Wording In—Gen(d)re Qweery,” to be included inside the issue, and we will be happy to consider writing and art submitted to this category for our non-themed main section and vice versa. We look forward to receiving your work.

Loose Change on the Wor(l)d! Submit your challenging and ambitious best by November 15.

2. Call for Chapbook Prose Submissions: Slash Pine Press

Each academic year, Slash Pine Press publishes two chapbooks in limited runs of 125 copies. This year, the press will publish one in the Fall of 2014 and one in the Spring of 2015.

The reading period is now open for our Spring chapbook. We are in search of prose manuscripts of any prose genre, no longer than 25 pages and made up of at least five separate pieces. 

 
DEADLINE: October 31, 2014.  


To submit, go here.

Guidelines:


We’re interested in seeing manuscripts of prose in all genres: fiction, non-fiction, and prose poetry. Manuscripts should be entirely prose, and should be made up of at least five interconnected or separate pieces. We are not considering, for example, submissions of one to four stories or essays. We are more interested in flash fiction or non-fiction, a larger work made up of smaller parts, or work that is conscious of how it uses white space and the page.

 
Simultaneous submissions are OK, but no multiple submissions will be accepted.


Please include your name and full contact information only in the “cover letter” section of the submission page. Authors may also list acknowledgments on the manuscript if desired.


All manuscripts receive a blind reading. The author’s name should not appear anywhere on the manuscript or in the title of file (on Submittable blind readers can still see the name of the file). Those manuscripts that include the author's name will be disqualified.


Manuscripts should be between 15-25 pages not counting cover page, acknowledgment page, or contents page (if included).


Collaborations are OK, but only by two authors.


The accepted manuscript will be determined by the editors and interns of Slash Pine Press. Decisions will be announced early 2015.


The $5 reading fee will go to printing and administrative fees. The author of the accepted manuscript will receive 15 copies as well as the option to buy additional copies at a reduced cost.


Faculty, students, and graduates of the University of Alabama are not eligible for publication.


As always, Slash Pine books are carefully designed and hand bound. To see examples of the books Slash Pine has published in the past, go to Slashpinepress.com.

3. Call for Submissions: Lockjaw Magazine

Lockjaw Magazine is currently accepting submissions for its first issue! YES! 

Submissions email:

submissionsATlockjawmagazineDOTcom (Change AT to @ and DOT to . ) 


Website 

We're a biannual, online-only journal publishing literary ephemera, visual art, music, and video. Obviously we want your best work, it hardly needs to be said (but we'll say it, just to put you at ease.) Beyond that: we don’t care about genre. There are lots of places to get Poetry and Fiction and while we’ll almost certainly publish some, we’re more interested in your unclassifiables, your orphans. This isn’t to say we’re averse to stanzas or stories (we’re not), but if you’re sending us a formal sonnet about your dog because that’s what poetry is supposed to look like, we will probably acknowledge that your dog seems awesome and politely leave it at that. We’re interested in the words and the sounds and the images, not so much conventional interpretations of genre.

Hopping off the soapbox: submissions are open through November 30; please visit our website for detailed guidelines and other stuff. Or throw caution to the wind and send your stuff to:


submissions(at)lockjawmagazine(dot)com (Change (at) to @ and (dot) to . )

But yeah, read the guidelines first. They're kind of funny.

Lockjaw Loves You,

6. Call for Submissions: New Delta Review

New Delta Review is currently seeking submissions in all genres (poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and art). We are especially interested in submissions by writers and artists who are underrepresented in literary publications in terms of race, gender, and sexual identity.

NDR is a literary journal produced by graduate students in the MFA Program in Creative Writing at Louisiana State University. Since 1984, NDR has published the work of emerging and established writers. Each issue includes original fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, reviews, interviews, and artwork. In our 30 years of publication, authors of international renown–National Book Award finalist Patricia Smith, Puschcart Prize-winning Stacey Richter, and former Poet Laureate Billy Collins, to name a few–have shared our pages with tomorrow’s literary stars. Our contributors are regularly included in anthologies such as Best American Short Stories, New Stories from the South, and Best American Poetry.

To learn more about NDR, please visit our website.
 
 
Poetry  
New Delta Review publishes poems that show distinct artistry (“a poem within each line”) and usually find a way to subvert form (e.g. prose poems reinventing the form of prose poetry). We are looking for work that represents a diversity of experiences through craft and content and demonstrates an awareness of current conversations about poetics. We want to understand what kind of writer you are; include several poems (five max) so that we get a sense of the scope of your art. Please read New Delta Review, particularly our current issue, since our aesthetics shift from year to year.
To submit, please go here.
 
 
Fiction  
We publish fiction in wildly different styles and modes. It’s easy to say, “Please read our journal to get a sense of our aesthetic,” so we will! Please read our journal to get a sense of our aesthetic; current and back issues are available for free, right here, on the internet. After you’ve read, please send us fiction that is emotionally engaging. We also appreciate your (carefully considered) risks with language, content, and form.
While we often publish longer pieces, we prefer our stories to come in at around 3,000 words. We also have a special interest in flash fiction, and brief series of flash pieces.

For more information about the Ryan R. Gibbs Award in Short Fiction judged by Roxane Gay (deadline: October 11, 2014), please visit here.

For general submissions, please visit here.
 
 
Nonfiction  
At New Delta Review, we are looking for experimental essays that explore personal experience though hybrid forms and engage the reader on an emotional and intellectual level. We enjoy work that celebrates the complexity of the nonfiction genre by pairing compelling content with innovative structure. We want to see you, the writer, exploring ­­­­­­ and questioning through your work, so that we may experience the journey alongside you. In this genre, questions are as valuable as answers—show us your vulnerability.
To submit, please visit here.
 
 
Art  
We will consider artwork in any medium, from traditional (painting, drawing, photography, images of installation/sculpture) to new media (video, animation, and hypertext). Please consider our online format, and the possibilities of art on the web, when submitting your work.
For more information about the Ryan R. Gibbs Award in Photography judged by Jesse Morgan Barnett (deadline: October 15, 2014), please visit here.

19. The Weekend Writer: Can We Learn About Writing In General From Writing Flash Fiction In Particular?

I've spent the better part of a month obsessing over a 1,000 word flash story, not one I was reading, one I was writing. I thought I was going to knock it off fast because I had a goal for my character, and I actually had an ending for the story. Or so I thought.

Flash Draft and Flash Revision


I wrote six or seven drafts before I got almost to the end of one. I'm at a point where I can put it away for a while. While I was going through this ordeal, I wondered if writing flash fiction could be a way to train to write other forms. Because flash is so short, you go through drafts faster and you can try different things faster, the way scientists use mice because their life cycles are shorter than humans so they can work faster. Over the course of my drafts, I worked on eliminating build-up and focusing specifically on the climactic moment.

Flash Addresses Writing Problems


Christopher Ramsey in Why I Teach Flash Fiction says, "In my class, flash has been a valuable teaching tool because it addresses all the issues a new writer might have in the context of their own writing." He says "the usual problems with new writers" include "too much backstory, too much filtering, authorial intrusion, and too many adverbs." Limiting yourself to 1,000 words addresses all kinds of "too much" problems.

23. Call for Submissions: NonBinary Review

NonBinary Review, the quarterly literary publication of Zoetic Press, wants art and literature that tiptoes the tightrope between now and then. Art that makes us see our literary offerings in new ways. We want language that makes us reach for a dictionary, a tissue, or both. Words in combinations and patterns that leave the faint of heart a little dizzy. We want insight, deep diving, broad connections, literary conspiracies, personal revelations, or anything you want to tell us about the themes we’ve chosen. Literary forms are changing as we use technology and typography to find new ways to tell stories—for work that doesn’t fit neatly into any one genre, we’ve created a separate category to properly evaluate submissions of a hybrid or experimental nature.

Each issue will focus on a single theme.
 

Issue #1 (June 2014): Grimm’s Fairy Tales is available for free download from the Apple store.


Upcoming themes:
 

Issue #3 (reading period closes Oct. 31, publication December 2014): L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz
 

Issue #4 (reading period closes Jan. 31, 2015; publication March 2015): Bulfinch's Mythology: The Age of Fable 

We are a paying market--1 cent per word for prose/hybrid work, $10 flat fee per poem, and $25 flat fee for art.

Please note that at present, the Zoetic app is accessible through iPad only, with future updates to include iPhone and Android versions. When submitting your work, please note that if selected for publication, your work will appear in electronic form only.

For more detailed guidelines, please expand the guidelines box of the genre you’re submitting to on our Submittable page.

We acquire first rights or one-time rights. Copyright reverts back to the author/artist after publication.
