Call for Submissions: Suburban Diaspora

Suburban Diaspora , an independent online literary journal, is accepting submissions for its first issue, due out in July. We’re interested in placeless writing: prose and poetry without strong ties to place or setting.

We do not have word or line limits, and we will consider one story, up to three flash fiction pieces (up to 1000 words), three to five poems, or one long poem (over fifty lines). We’re interested in work from emerging and established writers. We also accept simultaneous submissions.

Suburban Diaspora was created as a happy counterpoint to the many regional journals and presses that exist. Our home is proudly in the digital space, and our allegiances lie with digital natives, literary nomads, and the creative miscellany. If you’re interested in submitting, see our submissions page on Submittable, or look for us on Facebook or Twitter.
