Tidal Basin Review invites submissions of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and visual art for the next issue, "2084." This call is related to George Orwell’s prophetic novel, 1984. Not only do we ask you to reflect upon modern-day “Big Brother” in America; we also invite work that speculates on what our surveilled existence will be like in the U.S. 100 years after 1984.
Tidal Basin Review will accept submissions for this call from December 1, 2013 – January 31, 2014. Any submissions received after this deadline will not be considered and will be discarded. The response times vary. The standard response time is 2 (two) months.
Tidal Basin Review considers work in English, which has not been previously published. Tidal Basin Press, Inc. acquires North American Serial Rights, First Electronic Rights, and Electronic Archival Rights. Publication rights revert back to the author upon publication of work in an issue of Tidal Basin Review.
We accept simultaneous submissions, however, please notify us immediately upon acceptance of your work elsewhere via the Submission Manager.
For poetry submissions, submit 1-3 poems totaling no more than 5 pages in one single file in doc., rtf, or .pdf format.
For prose submissions, submit one (1) short story or one (1) stand alone novel chapter or creative non-fiction piece of no more than 2,500 words in one single file in doc., rtf, or .docx format.
