Gathering Storm Magazine (GSM) publishes fictional short stories of 2,000 words or less based on the themes for that issue, always an old saying, proverb, or maxim. All genres accepted, but preference to horror, sic-fi, and fantasy.
See Submission Guidelines for Best Possible Outcome because the instructions are very important.
Theme: RITUALS. Deadline: 1st February 2019. Here Comes Everyone (HCE) is a literary magazine of poetry, fiction, articles & artwork based around topical & interesting themes. We aim to provide innovative content & an accessible platform for readers & contributors.
Please read our submissions guidelines for full details. Submissions must be sent via the form on our website - work submitted to email addresses will not be accepted. We encourage bold/striking interpretations of the theme (RITUALS); if the link isn’t clear, include a few lines in your bio/at the start to provide context.
We have no restrictions on the content we publish, except that we’re passionate about publishing new perspectives — new ideas, new voices, new worlds, new challenges, new ways of seeing, etc.— a theme that can take an infinite number of shapes, including speculative fiction, experimental poetry, political essays, narrative reportage, and virtually everything else.
To submit your work, email the editors at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please address the appropriate editor (see the masthead at the bottom of the About page) and use the subject line: GENRE: Title of Work (ex. FICTION: My Story). Provide a brief introduction and attach your work as either a Word Doc or PDF. We normally respond to submissions within one (1) month.
The Scores is the literary journal of the University of St Andrews, under an advisory team of esteemed professors and instructors, including Don Paterson, Robert Crawford, Kathleen Jamie, Oli Hazzard, and Peter McKay. We seek to publish a very wide range of poetry (as can be seen in our current issue) in English and the languages of Scotland, along with poems translated into English and reviews of recent work in our bi-annual issues. We like work that thrills, work that moves, work that plays along the cliff edge.
Scrib seeks work that explore the human experience with honesty & authenticity. Spirituality permeates our experiences and is therefore an inherent element in our art. We look for unique work that will connect on a personal level, provoke reflection about our lives, & linger in the viewer’s mind after reaching the end. Your work need not have tidy Sunday School answers or easy resolutions to be published; struggles, complexity, and ambiguity are part of the human experience, too.
Scrib desires to provide authentic art and writing while maintaining Christian values. Any artist or writer might need to portray a variety of beliefs and worldviews to accurately represent the diversity of our world. Scrib draws the line at work that doesn’t show clear respect for the basic tenets of the Christian faith. The topic of sexuality is not off-limits, but we don’t publish graphic sexual content or work that condones sexual activity outside marriage. Swearing should be artistically essential, if used.
Seeking micro stories and poetry from the speculative realm. Send prose or poetry at 66 words. No more, no less.
Multiple and simultaneous submissions are welcome, but please let me know ASAP if you accept publication elsewhere.
Stretch the possibilities of 66 words. Inspire envy. Break hearts with your prose. Scare readers into sleeping with the lights on. Send universes in raindrops, magical realism, dragons that slay, potions and toadstools, spaceships, other dimensions, grit and butterfly wings, alternate history, and the indefinable.
