Call for submissions: grain short/grain long
The inaugural issue of grain short/grain long
is now available,
featuring excellent work by Suzanne Grazyna, Virginia Reeves,
Elizabeth Kate Switaj, & C. R. E. Wells in response to the theme
"grain short/grain long."
Our next issue will center around the theme "Collaboration / Stimulus
/ Response." We are looking for works that collaborate with, are
stimulated by, &/or respond to other writers & artists. The vehicle --
be it ekphrasis, tag-team writing, plain ol' inspiration, etc. -- is
immaterial. We want to see what you come up with. This is a broad
topic, so we hope to get a variety of interpretations.
grain short/grain long is open to all types of poetry, prose, visual,
& hybrid works. We are especially interested in submissions from
women; Southerners; unknown, unpublished, & under-represented artists;
or anyone whose projects have been described as "innovative,"
"experimental," "avant-garde," "post-avant," "eccentric," or just
Potential contributors may submit up to four (4) poems, four thousand
(4,000) words of prose, or images up to 2 MB in response to the
current call to <flaming.giblet(at)gmail.com>
(replace (at) with @)
Accepted file formats include JPG, TIFF, BMP, ODT, DOC, & RTF. Other
formats will be considered on an individual basis -- query first.
Projects that stretch the limits of print are welcome, so long as
their execution is feasible within our (alas, oh so=2
resources. Hint: Make it great. The more we love it, the more likely
we are to finesse something for you.
Submissions in response to "Collaboration / Stimulus / Response" will
be accepted until December 31, 2008.
