For this reading period, After Happy Hour is running a contest with a visual theme. The 5 theme images are available on their website. They are not looking for works written about these images, but instead for finished, polished stories, poems, and essays that are in conversation with one or more of the images.
Since we've already selected the images, After Happy Hour is only accepting word-based submissions for this reading period. More details about the contest and the theme images can be found at their website.
Tips From the Editor
The editorial crew is a weird bunch. We count among us a Klingon-speaking demigirl, a poet who carves words into food, and the author of a cannibal comedy. We would love to publish more genre, genre-bending, and experimental work but get unfortunately little of publishable quality. Be that writer, and you’ll make our little oddball hearts happy.
