We are now accepting submissions for our SPRING 2018 ISSUE: “MUTE”
Please submit your work by Friday, March 2, 2018.
What is there to be said in silence? What sounds emerge from us in censorship? For this issue we are looking for pieces that explore the idea of MUTE in the form of poetry, visual art, photography, and creative nonfiction prose. How do we live while muted, either in silence or vibrancy? How have we muted others or ourselves, intentionally or accidentally? What is there to say about silence?
We accept all forms and genres of creative non-fiction and visual media so long as it presents a personal narrative. We ask that contributors do not submit more than 5 pieces per issue.
Please email all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name included in the subject line. We ask that you include writing submissions as .doc or .pdf attachments rather than pasting them into the body of the email.
If submitting photos or artwork, please send the files as .jpg or .png email attachments (high-resolution files preferred). If the pieces have titles, include them in the body of your email.
Submissions are welcome at any time before the March 2 deadline, and decisions will be emailed to all authors before the end of the quarter (around or before March 18). We mail two copies of the magazine to each contributor upon publication.
What we look for in written work:
- Unique personal narratives: as a creative nonfiction publication, we want to represent a wide variety of voices and experiences.
- Writing that captivates us: we love pieces that surprise us with innovative forms and techniques.
- Clarity and brevity: we think a succinct story is often more impactful than a long-winded one.
- Stories worth telling: we welcome writing that uncovers hidden meanings and teaches us something new.
