2. Call for Flash Fiction: "Baby Shoes" Anthology

Thank you for wanting to be a part of the “Baby Shoes” anthology. We’re excited about this and hope you will be too.

Top – Level Concept

There aren’t enough flash fiction anthologies in the world, and those that are tend to focus on a specific genre. We want a little bit of everything, from a little bit of everybody.

For Sale: Baby Shoes. Never Used. Will feature 100 pieces of flash fiction from 100 different authors. All genres are open. No holds barred in terms of content or language (within reason – you’ll get rejected for child porn or needless hate speech, for example).

We’re funding the project via Kickstarter to make sure we can hire top editors, get awesome cover art and pay all of our contributors.

What we want from you

#1: A piece of awesome fiction less than 1,000 words long. We want it by the 5th of December sent as a .doc file you’ve already spellchecked and gone over for typos.

#2: Your help making the Kickstarter campaign go viral. You don’t have to contribute, but if each contributor gets two friends to back the book we’ll be well over our goals.

#3: Your help promoting the anthology once it’s released. You’ll probably do this anyway since you’ll be jazzed about being in print, but we’ll help you do it well.

What you get from us:

#1: You get paid up front, assuming the Kickstarter succeeds.
Authors already professionally published get to choose between (a) $10 and an electronic contributor’s copy and (b) $5 and a print contributor’s copy.
Authors for whom this will be the first professional publication choose between (a) $5 and an electronic contributor’s copy and (b) a print contributor’s copy.

You’ll see some mention of other arrangements for our “anchor” authors – rock stars like Joe R. Lansdale, Larry Brooks and Linda Needham who have graciously agreed to be involved. Don’t let that hurt your feelings. You and I aren’t at that level…yet.

#2: You receive some royalties.
Half of the profits from the anthology go to the publisher. Half of the remainder goes to the anchor authors. The remaining quarter gets split between the other contributors.
Fair warning: There are 100 authors involved and we don’t expect to sell millions of copies. Your cut of the profits will not amount to a whole lot more than bragging rights and a few bucks in your PayPal account. Don’t buy a new car on credit just because you got into the anthology, okay?

That’s the basics. We plan to launch the Kickstarter in early November and receive the submissions in late November/early December. If all goes well, we’ll print in time for Christmas.

If you’re as excited as we are about this, just shoot me a line at:

brickcommajasonATgmailDOTcom (Change AT to @ and DOT to . )

and we’ll get you started.

11. 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.

14. 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.

15. 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,
