Call for Submissions: A Handful of Dust (H.O.D.)

With its 5th Issue just published H.O.D. (A Handful Of Dust) announces it is currently accepting submissions of UNPUBLISHED writing for Issue Issue #6 (02/14/2011) and Issue #7 (06/2?/2012). H.O.D. is mainly looking for UNPUBLISHED grit-lit poetry and short-short-short fiction/prose poetry (200 words--1-2 paragraphs preferred) submitted in the body of an e-mail.

Cut off date for #6 will be January 15th or so, but all submissions will be considered for either issue. While the dates of the next issues (Valentine's Day and The First Day Of Summer) may suggest themes, H.O.D. will consider any subject and style, even poems about eating leftover chocolate hearts on your summer vacation.

H.O.D. asks that you send 3-5 UNPUBLISHED poems in the body of an e-mail:

h.o.d.submissions(at) (at) with @) no attachments. No Attachments. NO ATTACHMENTS. I make sure each poem is accurate when it goes to publish.

H.O.D. is also seeking artwork for future issues. Black & White photography preferred. Gritty subject matter a plus. PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED OKAY, just let me know who and when. Submit 3 pieces to:


Low-res .jpeg Attachments preferred. If interested, H.O.D. will request higher-res copies.
