I’m delighted to announce that Issue 1 of DNA Magazine is available for your viewing pleasure! With work from 19 featured writers, each piece delves into the stories behind every day lists. Sing-a-long with Sue E. Barsby in The Family Business, crave caffeine relief with Christopher Stanley in Survivor Guilt and observe your fellow passengers with Tino Prinzi’s The Same People At the Bus Stop! Reading these stories should definitely be on your list of things to do today.
The magazine is available to read free online but you can also order one of 50 free limited print copies of the magazine from the website (please note: we do charge a small £2.50 P&P fee national fee and £5.50 international fee). For those who like their print magazines, we’ve added a soft-touch laminate to the cover to give it a luxurious feel.
Here are some kind reviews from people who have already read the first issue:
We’re also delighted to announce that submissions are now open for Issue 2 which is due for release in September. For this issue, we’re looking for interesting and unique insights behind identity and the multitude of things (from hobbies, relationships, schools, interests, beliefs, events or places to name but a few) which form a key part of who we are as individuals. We want to get to know you, the person you see when you look in the mirror. We want to see the places that have made an impact on your life, share in the experiences that have shaped your life.
As with the first issue, we’re looking for 300-500 word pieces of non-fiction poetry and prose – we’ll even accept prose poetry – or 144 character long pieces of Twitterature. If you have any photographs or images which could accompany the piece to help illustrate it, please also send us a copy of the file (either as a .jpg, .png or .psd). The closing date for submissions for issue 2 is Midnight on 24th July, 2017. Send them to us at email@example.com
Many thanks and we hope you enjoy Issue 1,
DNA Magazine UK Editor
Submissions are now open for issue #2 of The Ham.
We’re looking for short-fiction, poetry, art, and photography based around the theme(s) of ‘Change & Stasis’. Please see the submissions page for guidelines and further details.
Copies of issue #1 of The Ham can now be ordered online. This first issue contains work from a whopping 51 contributors, and is free of charge – you will only be charged for the price of postage.
Finally, we are very excited to announce plans for a launch party to celebrate the release of our inaugural issue. The venue is the wonderful community owned Ivy House in Nunhead, the date is Tuesday 13th December, and we’ll be kicking things off from around 7.30pm. There will be live readings from contributors, and music from the amazing Whiskey Moonface. The event is free, open to the public, and there will be lots of copies of issue #1 to take away for free. Come along if you can, the more the merrier, it should be a great way to meet other lovers of short-stories and poetry, and to hear some wonderful readings and music. Drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to do a reading of your work too!
The first issue of The Nottingham Review is now available! It includes 12 original short stories, with a cover by David Sillitoe, and can be read on the website (recommended for mobile users), downloaded/viewed as a PDF, downloaded for Kindle or read online at Issuu here: http://www.thenottinghamreview.com/read/
Submissions are now open for Issue 2 (December 2015). There is no theme, so general submissions are welcome, but I am also looking for a few winter-themed stories for the collection. Please see the website for submission guidelines.
Submissions for Issue 1 (September 2015) of The Nottingham Review close on Friday the 21st of August! However, anything received after this date will still be considered for Issue 2 (December 2015). The first issue is almost complete, but there’s still room for one or two more stories, so if you’ve got something you’d like to be considered for the inaugural issue then please submit! (Submission guidelines available here).
If anyone is a reviewer/blogger (or please pass this along if you know anyone who is) and would be interested in receiving an advance digital copy of Issue 1, please get in touch at email@example.com
