Call for Submissions: [out of nothing]

call for submissions: [out of nothing]

[out of nothing], an electronic publication interested in new works in
image, sound, text, and the intersections between these media, is now
open to submissions for our fourth online edition of the journal—with
the theme, "In excess of all that is proper, shapely"—as
well as for a special print anthology. As usual, we ask that you
submit to us, at shelling.peanuts(at) [replace (at) with @],
your textual, aural, visual, poly/ambi-medial work, that we may
publish it in both/either of these formats.

Deadline: April 30th, 2010.

Prospective contributors would be well-advised to consult our earlier publications as a guide to the type of work we're interested in: to supplement this understanding and ideally stimulate your thinking about a new piece made particularly to address the issues that consume, or rather, are consumed by us, we offer the
following potential topics:
  • the vacuum
  • salvage / remainders
  • imaginary spaces possessed of imaginary dimensions
  • darkness / lightlessness
  • reduced or infinitesimal means
  • the exponential
  • self-abnegating symbols
  • the blank
  • obliteration
  • the inconsequential
  • refusal
  • the contentless/general contentlessness
  • the generic and/or undifferentiated and / or the contra-original
  • adhesive agents in search of clients to bind
  • none of the above or below
Our submissions guidelines
*We ask that you do not submit previously published work; we will draw from our own reserves for The Familiar.
