Calls for Submissions:
Drafthorse Literary Journal is seeking submissions for its Summer 2013 issue. Drafthorse is a biannual online publication of fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, visual narrative, and other media art where work, occupation, labor—or lack of the same—is in some way intrinsic to a narrative’s potential for epiphany. They are interested in how work (or the absence of it) affects people and communities on an intimate level. While they’re open to various interpretations, they expect the subject to be fundamental to your submission in some way. Deadline for the summer issue is April 30, 2013.
2. The Journal
The Journal is interested in quality fiction, poetry, non-fiction, and reviews of new books of poetry and prose. There are no restrictions on category or type of submission for fiction, poetry, and non-fiction. They are happy to consider long stories and self-contained excerpts of novels.
3. Shadow Road Quarterly
Currently accepting original fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction. Deadline for the summer issue is May 15, 2013.
As always, Black Fox Literary Magazine is accepting submissions of fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, art and photography. The Winter Issue (#7) is out! Happy Writing!
