"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

Call for Submissions Love <3 K'in Seeking Poetry, Fiction, & Nonfiction

 

Reading Now For Our Inaugural Issue! 

Submission Details

Prose: 5000 words or less, open to content, form, structure.

Fiction: We welcome short stories of all shapes and sizes, from the mind-blowing traditional story to fiction that blurs the lines between forms, genre fiction, experimental fiction, etc. We also welcome flash and micro fiction.

Nonfiction: We’re looking for slow burns in a world of hot takes, questions asked instead of answers proved. We welcome a wide variety of nonfiction—traditional essay, narrative nonfiction, micro/flash memoir—and encourage experimentation, though not at the expense of factual truth. Too many true stories go untold, and we want to offer space to honor those voices.

Poetry: 3-5 poems, open to content, form, structure. Please don’t forget the power voice, sound, and time can have in poetry.

For all submissions, simultaneous submissions are permitted, but please let us know. To withdraw one part of a submission, please add a note in Green Submissions so that the information is instantly available to all editors. We will not process emailed withdrawal requests.
Experimental, traditional, playful, prayerful, celebratory, challenging: human—try us. Show us a new way to tell one of the millions of stories under that glorious sun.

Friday Call For Submissions Love <3 Broadsided Press Seeking Ekphrastic Writing

Ekphrastic Writing Wanted

Bearing Arms:  Responding to Guns in American Culture

Deadline: December 27, 2017

Fee: $3

From their call: 

“We have, according to the constitution, the right “to keep and bear arms” in the United States.  But how, in the wake of Las Vegas, Pulse, Sandy Hook, Trayvon Martin, and other abuses of firearms—by citizens and in some cases by those trained to protect and serve—do we bear that right?  How do we bear it?

At Broadsided, we believe that art and literature belong in our daily lives. They inspire and demonstrate the vitality and depth of our connection with the world. We had to speak out—we had to make a space for you to speak out—on this issue…

We now ask you to respond with words.  Below are six works of visual art.  When you submit your writing, be sure to be clear as to which piece you are responding.

GUIDELINES: Our general guidelines for length apply.  There is a special button on Submittable for this feature.  The form asks you to indicate which artwork you are responding to.  If you respond to multiple pieces, please make sure the correlation is clear on your submission itself. Because poem and image will be presented together as a broadside, we are most interested in writing that opens new engagements with the art….”
