Call for Submissions from American and Swedish Writers: Rufous Press


Rufous Press will publish an anthology of contemporary writers from the United States and Sweden. The book will be available worldwide as a paperback. It will be called Over Yonder.

We editors believe that there are many interesting parallels and differences between these countries. Americans do not need to have Swedish ancestry to participate in the project, of course.

We are looking for poetry, short stories and flash fiction. There is no particular theme, despite the Swedish/American focus. Yet, we are looking for work that is chiselled, concise and vibrant. All texts should be written in English. The deadline is 30 January 2012.

How to Submit:

Poetry: 1-3 pieces in the body of an email. Visual poetry or images with integrated poems should be in black and white and in the jpg. format.

Short short stories or short stories: 1 piece as a Word/Works attachment.
Include your full name and a short bio (10-60 words) in the third person. Mark the email as “American/Swedish” and indicate whether you are submitting poetry or fiction. We do not consider previously published material or simultaneous submissions. All rights remain with the creators. However, Rufous Salon and Rufous Press will claim the rights to archive links to the publication.

We will not read submissions that do not follow these guidelines!

Please send your submission to:
journal(at) (replace (at) with @ in sending e-mail)
