Submissions are now open for the third issue of Shooter Literary Magazine, with the theme of “Surreal.”
Shooter welcomes short fiction, non-fiction and poetry that pertains to the strange and fantastical, oddballs and eccentrics, weird and wonderful, transgressive and transcendent. Writers might consider the juxtaposition of the bizarre with the everyday and the unusual within the ordinary. Other starting points include dreams, nightmares, symbolism, places where anything can happen and things that are not as they seem.
Shooter invites writers to explore the limits of their imagination, but keep in mind that writing must be of a literary standard: beautifully written, well crafted stories with compelling characters, and poetry that is rooted in meaning. Prose pieces should run between 2,000 and 7,500 words. Writers may submit one story and up to three poems per issue. The deadline is October 25th, 2015. Please visit Shooter’s Submissions page for further guidelines.
Please send work as .doc, .docx or .rtf attachments, with a brief 2-3 sentence cover letter mentioning prior publishing experience, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
