call for submissions: Flywheel Magazine
- Flywheel Magazine seeks submissions in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.
Inspired in part by a magazine of the same name produced in a German
prison camp by British soldiers, the editors of Flywheel take our name
seriously. We see the flywheel as a symbol of the transfer of
energyâ"both the vital energy that sustains people in unthinkable
situations (like prison camps) and the cultural energy that connects
human beings across time, space, and circumstance.
Our mission, as such, is to provide our readers with stories, essays,
and poems that whomp you in the face with the energy of the writers. As
our guidelines note:
We discourage quiet epiphanies. But if your story has one that makes
Dave run and tackle Geoff and yell, âDid you read the end of this
yet?!â and Geoff says, âI did! Nothing happened, and it blew my
brains out!â, and then the sprinklers go off, then, yeah, by all
means, send us that story.
