Call for Submissions – Avis Magazine

6927613713_9887ecde36_b

With Avis Magazine Issue 2 at the printers and on its way into a store near your (sort of), we’re opening our call up for Issue 3.

For our third issue, we want our submissions to focus on ‘Influence’. Influence: the workings of others, of alcohol, of emotion, on our own actions. Influence: the flowing in, the arrival of the foreign, the secret operations of history. Give us your Unconscious influences. Tell us the influences you wish you had, but don’t. Perhaps you want to tell us about your idol. Perhaps you want to tell us about what you did when you last got off your head. Perhaps you write to honour David Bowie. Perhaps you’re obsessed with him. Perhaps you’re obsessed with nothing, influenced by nothing: totally pure. What does it mean to be shaped and changed by another? What does it mean to shape and change?

A few stipulations. Please the rules for submission on our website closely; we are inevitably better disposed towards work that meets our requirements.

General Submissions

Closing date is 23 May 2016.

Send your work in standard manuscript format.

Send us short prose, send us poetry, send us precise non-fiction. Send us photography and illustration.

That’s all folks. Happy Spring.

The Avis Team

Run by students on the MMU’s MA Creative Writing programme, Avis Magazine seeks work from new and emerging writers on the theme of migration.

Across geographies big and small, wide and minor; across borders and boundaries, fences, walls, and lines in the sand. Think comets through the cosmos and piercings through the skin; people, their lives, their losses. Dip your fingers in your inkwells and let us have it. We support emerging writers – so if you’ve never had a story or poem published, send something across. We’re a print journal, so if your work is strange and/or lovely and you like to see it in a magazine, get in touch.

 

Prose
We are looking for your finest short stories and flash.
Submit up to 1 short story and 3 pieces of flash.
The short story word limit is 2,000 words.
The flash should range from 100 to 1000 words maximum.

 

Poetry
We are hungry for your leanest verse.
Submit up to 4 pieces of poetry.
The line-count limit is 40 lines per poem.

 

Non-fiction
We have a small section for essays and meditations on the issue’s theme.
Submit 1 piece of non-fiction  of up to 2,000 words.
