Pixel Heart Literary Magazine is currently open for submissions for its first ever issue. The theme is ‘Love’, and the magazine accepts flash fiction (under 750 words), poetry (of any length), and short stories (1,000 – 2,500 words).
There is no submission fee, and we’d love to read anything you’d like to send to us, whether you’re a new or experienced writer – as long as your submission sticks to the theme in some way. (But in what way is up to you!)
For our more specific submission guidelines and info on how to submit, please click here. Submissions for Issue One are currently open until midnight BST on June 30th, 2018. ❤
Dublin-based print and digital literary magazine, Into the Void, seeks fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and visual art for Issue Three. There is no theme. We want work that screams out from inside you and grabs hold of us. We want to read what you have no choice but to write. Unpublished and less established writers have as good a chance as any—it’s all about the writing. The deadline is December 25th and there is no fee to submit: https://intothevoidmagazine.com/submissions/
The annual Into the Void Poetry Competition is also currently ongoing. Judged by Heath Brougher, poetry editor of Five 2 One Magazine. Prizes of up to €150 + published on website + others. All details here.
We accept poems of all forms and styles of up to 80 lines with no minimum line or word count. We’re looking for musicality, economy of words, vividness, evoking of the senses, voice. Poems can be about anything at all, and of all shapes.
We publish almost exclusively literary fiction, however, we’re open to anything if it’s extremely well-written and has some sense of depth. We’re 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.
We accept essays of up to 4,000 words, on any topic, that convey passion and truth, be it personal or issue-focused. We want essays that bite.
Structo is celebrating the launch of its 12th issue with a competition. As the magazine contains a new interview with Margaret Atwood, it seems only right that the competition prize is a signed copy of Atwood’s latest novel Maddaddam.
In addition to the 20-page interview, the new issue contains 10 short stories, 14 poems (four in translation, from the German, Serbian and Spanish), an instructional score, and an essay about the life and death of Jean Rhys. It’s also in colour for the first time!
And because sleep is for the weak, the Structo team are now accepting submissions for issue 13. Head to the magazine’s website for more information, and for the link to submit your writing.
