Stymie Magazine, a journal of sport & literature, is seeking submissions for their upcoming 2010 issues (Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter). Past contributors and those already slated to appear in the near future include: Matt Ferrence, Daniel Orozco, Brian Oliu, Lee Gruenfeld, Ben Loory, Dawn Corrigan and many others.
In terms of what we’re about, our magazine is focused on sport in literature, be it through fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction or essay. We love the sport themed work (i.e. baseball) published at places like Hobart and The Southern Review, and other places like Golf World (in their annual fiction issue). We're partial to the essays of David Foster Wallace. We'd be ecstatic to get an essay on 1986's Double Dribble for the NES.
We are currently reading submissions, our complete guidelines can be found here.
