      H.O.D. (A Handful Of Dust) is seeking poetry and artwork for its second issue scheduled for October 31, 2010. While H.O.D. has no theme or limits, its editor would like to see more work that is grounded in grit-lit. The date of publication does not suggest an overall theme, but the editor will pretty much read anything (including horror). The journal is also open to flash and micro-fiction than can double as good prose poetry. Submit 3-5 poems and a cover letter in the body of an e-mail to: h.o.d.submissionsATgmailDOTcom.

      H.O.D. is also open to Artwork submissions, from b&w photography to pencil (or ink) sketches. Check the new issue for an idea of what the editor wants. Submit 1-3 pieces as low-res jpegs to: <h.o.d.submissions(at)gmail.com> (replace (at) with @).


      Check out http://hofd.wordpress.com
      for further guidelines and read the debut issue to get an idea of where the journal is headed.

        H.O.D. (A Handful Of Dust) is seeking poetry and artwork for its third
        issue scheduled for February 14, 2011. While H.O.D. has no theme or
        limits, its editor would like to see more work that is grounded in
        grit-lit. The date of publication does not suggest an overall theme,
        but the editor will pretty much read anything (including
        sexy-make-boom-boom poems). The journal is also open to
        flashy/micro-fiction that can double as good prose poetry or poetic
        fiction. Submit 3-5 poems and a cover letter in the body of an e-mail
        to: h.o.d.submissionsATgmailDOTcom. NO. ATTACHMENTS. OF. POETRY.
        EVER. (I will probably still read them (I'm a big sucker), but there
        is no guarantee you'll get a reply.)

        H.O.D. is also open to Artwork submissions, from b&w photography to
        pencil (or ink) sketches. Check the new issues for an idea of what
        the editor wants. Submit 1-3 pieces as low-res jpegs to:
        <h.o.d.submissions(at)gmailDOTcom> (replace (at) with @ in sending
        email). H.O.D. needs your beautiful, dark,
        sexy, ugly, pretty, gritty, skillful, mind-blowing artwork.
        Otherwise, the editor will continue filling in gaps with his own "art"
        and no one (NO ONE) deserves that...

        Check out http://hofd.wordpress.com for further guidelines and read
        the second issue to get an idea of where the journal is headed.


        Comments (or suggestions of other journals that may be open to your
        submitted work (mainly if it is just a manner of my taste and nothing
        unsound about the work)) on all submissions.

          H.O.D. (A Handful Of Dust) (http://hofd.wordpress.com) announces it is
          currently accepting submissions of UNPUBLISHED writing for Issue #4
          (due out 06/22/2011) and Issue #5 (10/31/2011). H.O.D. is mainly
          looking for UNPUBLISHED grit-lit poetry and short-short-short
          fiction/prose poetry (250 words--1-2 paragraphs preferred). Cut off
          date for #4 will be June 1, 2011, but all submissions will be
          considered for either issue. While the date of the next issues (First
          Day Of Summer, Halloween) may suggest themes, H.O.D. will consider any
          subject and style, even poems about what you did on your Summer
          Vacation or your mother-in-law splattered with corn syrup.

          H.O.D. asks that you send 3-5 UNPUBLISHED poems in the body of an
          e-mail to <h.o.d.submissions(at)gmail.com> No attachments. I make sure
          each poem is accurate when it goes to publish.

          H.O.D. is also seeking artwork for future issues. Black & White
          photography preferred. Gritty subject matter a plus. PREVIOUSLY
          PUBLISHED OKAY, just let me know who and when. Submit 3 pieces to
          <h.o.d.submissions(at)gmail.com> Low-res .jpeg preferred. If interested,
          H.O.D. will request higher-res copies.

            door.

            Special Call (Sort OF): I have some nice icy imagery lined up for the
            next two issues. Wintry poems, bleak poems, bare-bottom frozen to the
