"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Friday Call For Submissions Love! EXPERIMEMENTOS

Call for Submissions: EXPERIMEMENTOS, Third Issue

Deadline: February 29, 2016

Formerly based in San Francisco, EXPERIMEMENTOS has relocated to Rochester, NY and is preparing its third issue. The primary focus is poetry, though short prose works, as well as pretty much any type of writing/art, are considered. We are attracted to experimentation, so give us your envelope pushers, your external boxers, your noodle scratchers.
For more information about our editing process (which is very different from most magazines!), please read the submission guidelines found herewww.experimementos.com/submissions/.


Submit a poem, story, excerpt, essay, e-mail, chat log, whatever! Strong preference toward experimental works and/or a desire to obtain an experimental work through the editing process. Anything deemed not experimental or “good” enough may be edited. [see below]*. Artwork submissions will also be considered (and possibly edited).

Please limit submissions to 500 words, unless it’s REALLY REALLY REALLY good. There is not much space in this magazine and each page adds a headache. Submissions over 500 words are liable to being thrown out.

*By submitting, you agree to many things:

  • Your piece may be edited into an entirely different work, though you will receive credit as the primary author. [NOTE: no words will be added to your piece without your permission; they will only be subtracted and/or rearranged.]
  • EXPERIMEMENTOS acquires first serial rights. After publication, all rights revert to you, except in cases involving editing like the above, in which rights will be shared jointly by author and editor.
  • Your piece will be featured in print and on this website, in the form of an online magazine and possibly quotes in the SCRAPS section.

Submissions and questions go to here:

Friday Call For Submissions :-) Got Book? Send It Out!

I’m working on sending out a new book of prose poems, so I thought I’d share some of the calls for books I’ve found. Thanks to Poets & Writers, to all the good folks on Facebook who host Call for Submissions groups, and especially to Allison Joseph for all of the amazingly generous work she does for the writing community on her fabulous group CWROPPS!

The list here is for current open calls for poetry, for book-length collections, but many of these presses also have calls for prose and for chapbooks at other times of the year, so check them out 🙂 Some of these are contests; others are open readings periods with reading fees.

Got book? Send it out!
