Shooter seeks submissions for Identity issue

Shooter Literary Magazine has opened submissions for its summer issue (#10), which will be Identity.

The biannual lit mag (recently reviewed in the TLS) wants stories, essays, reported narratives and poetry on anything to do with the sense of self, whether personal or cultural. What defines someone – character, actions, associations, appearance? Why is identity important? What happens when it’s threatened? Shooter particularly seeks content that addresses topical issues of gender, sexuality, race, nationality, religion and occupation, but the theme is open to wide interpretation.

For anyone with stories outside that theme (and keen to reap a rather larger cash reward), Shooter’s 2019 Short Story Competition is also open for entries. The winner will collect a £500 prize, with publication online and in the summer issue, while the runner-up receives £100 and online publication.

Deadline for both general and competition submissions is April 21st. Please visit Shooter’s Submissions or Competition pages for guidelines on how to submit.

Into The Void Call for Submissions Issue 2

Into The Void Magazine seeks fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and visual art for Issue Two. There is no theme. We want work that screams out from inside you and grabs hold of us. We want to hear what you have no choice but to tell. Unpublished and less established writers have as good a chance as any—it’s all about the writing. The deadline is September 25th. https://intothevoidmagazine.com/submissions/ cover
 
POETRY
We accept poems of all forms and styles of up to 80 lines with no minimum line or word count. The key here is two-fold: A clear display of the intention to create a beautiful sounding poem, and an economical use of well-chosen words of powerful meaning and description. Poems can be about anything at all, and of all shapes.
 
FICTION
We are open to all genres and styles of up to 4,000 words with no minimum. Although literary fiction tends to be our favourite, we love any kind of story that blows us away, from science fiction to speculative to fantasy to horror. The only requirement is writing your little heart out! We aren’t too fussed about flawless grammar and technique; we’re much more interested in stories that grab and enthral and refuse to let go. We prize beautiful, unique prose but clarity is a must. The most important thing we can tell you is this: Stories, always, always, always, are about people. Everything else is secondary. Write the story you simply must write–the one that screams its way out of your fingers because it needs to be read.
NON-FICTION
We accept essays of up to 4,000 words on any topic whatsoever that conveys passion and truth, be it personal or issue-focused. We want essays that bite!

Some work that doesn’t make it into the magazine will be accepted for publication on our website.

Published writers receive a token payment as well as two copies of the magazine–one print and one digital.
