DNA Magazine UK is extending its call for creative nonfiction submissions on the theme of Lies and Confessions until 13th April, 2018.
There is a certain measure of subjectivity in life. Each journey from crib to coffin is different, and with every step, our moral outlook evolves. We are each the hero of our own story but one man’s hero is another man’s villain. In issues 2 and 3, we asked you to tell us about identity and how the places in your life have left their mark, issue 4 asks you to dig deeper and examine the question of truth.
We want to hear about those times when you were a victim of dishonesty or when your honest self fled into the undergrowth. This can be a small white lie told to screw over a sibling or that time you told your mum her cake wasn’t eggy. We’re looking for big lies, small lies and shake to your core lies. What was the outcome of the dishonesty, and what happened when and if the truth came out?
DNA is open for submissions until midnight (BST) on 13th April 2018. We accept 300 – 500 words of prose or poetry (prose poetry is also welcome) and twitterature that is up to 144 characters long. If you have any photographs or documents which relate to your story, these can also be submitted alongside your work. Check our submission guidelines for more information.
Send us your submission, images and a short bio to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Issue 4 is expected to be published in June of 2018.
