Call for Submissions: Your Impossible Voice

Your Impossible Voice is now accepting submissions for its second and third issue due out this winter and and in the spring. We publish fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and more. We don't charge any reading fees and do pay our contributors.

Contributors to our first issue included: Arisa White, Jessica Hagedorn, Horacio Castellanos Moya, Stacey Levine, Gillian Conoley, Christopher Hennessy and more.

For prose we're looking for quality works. We are interested in writing from around the world. We would like to receive transmissions from outer space, as well as from deep underground. We are not bored and prefer not to be. We like urgency, innovation, intelligence, risk. We’re interested in what language can do and in challenging our own preconceptions. We love lucid dreams, blurred boundaries, formal play, and stories we’ve never heard. We love the voices of deluded philosophers, hallucinating prisoners, cold-blooded rationalists and insane children. We love realism in the sense that everything is real. We have fairly open minds. Surprise us. Make us think or make us feel or make our brains explode. We are waiting.

For poetry we are looking for work that is devious and feisty. Send us work that frustrates our ideas of beauty and illuminates surreal new intersections. Ignite our understanding of form. We are drawn to sharp juxtapositions, secret codes and mysterious circumstances. Show us what lives in your peripheral vision; invite us in to your hidden rooms. Hand us the skeleton key and the magnifying glass – we’re ready to follow.
