Call for submissions – Avis Magazine

CanadianGeeseV-Large

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.

 

For more details, include the format for submissions, deadlines, etc. go here. You’ll find contact details on the website if you have any queries.

 

Happy winter

PAPER AND INK LITERARY ZINE ISSUE #6

Banner PNG

Issue #6 of PAPER AND INK is all designed and ready to go and let me tell you… It really is our biggest and best issue yet. Over forty writers and artists from all over the world are featured. There are some amazing stories and fantastic artwork. The only problem is that we now need to raise the funds to get the mag printed. I don’t normally do this but I have turned to Indiegogo for a little helping hand. There are some awesome perks and rewards up for grabs so please lend your support if you’re able to. If you can’t help out financially then please share the campaign on your networks. It would be a big help and very much appreciated!

THE REVIEWS ARE IN!

Here at PAPER AND INK LITERARY ZINE we love to hear what our readers think of the zine, good or bad, all feedback is helpful (Well, most of it). Steve Nash of Sabotage Reviews recently got hold of our fifth issue and had some very kind words to say about it (I promise, we did not bribe or blackmail him into saying such things). Check out the review here.

We would love to know what you thought of the zine, too, so if you’d like to sing our praises or tell us why you hated it, drop us an email at paperandinkzine@outlook.com
