Call for Submissions: Big Lucks

Big Lucks is a fledging not-for-profit literary journal that plans to publish its first printed issue in January 2010. We seek unique voices in prose and poetry, and wish to highlight the finest visual art we can get our greasy little hands on.

FICTION: If your story fulfills the guidelines and expectations of a particular genre (horror, sci-fi, fantasy), then it probably (but not certainly) doesn't have a place in Big Lucks. We seek new and unique prose that moves its audience. We do accept multiple pieces; however, we ask than you submit no more than 3,500 words of prose at a time.

POETRY: You may submit up to five poems at a time. Strong voices and work that makes us think, feel, or wonder something different will be looked at fondly. An eighty-line limit is asked of all poetry submissions. Send all pieces in separate attachments in ONE single e-mail, stating the titles of the attached works in the body of your email, along with the information asked above for everyone.

VISUAL ART: Big Lucks seeks various visual art for publication within our magazine and for cover art. We currently accept color submissions; however, to keep costs down, we're forced to print all images in black and white. Some formats we're particularly fond of are:

photography (both film and digital)
mixed media & collage
vector drawings
scans of paintings and sketches
Please send all submissions as JPEGs.

E-mail all submissions to:
editors(at) (replace (at) with @).

Please use "SUBMISSION" and the type of work you are submitting(fiction/poetry/art) as the subject line. Please use standard manuscript formatting, and be sure to include your name, e-mail address, and a short biography in the body of your email. As writers ourselves, we not only welcome simultaneous submissions but encourage it.
