Call for Submissions: Sugared Water Magazine

Sugared Water is seeking submissions of creative nonfiction, poetry, and prose for its third and fourth issues (the second’s just been released). SW is a limited edition, handbound lit mag featuring a hand pulled print as cover. 
(For previous issues and to submit, please see our website.) Reading now through July 1, 2014.

If we could candy words, we’d eat them to bellyaches every afternoon. We carry journals and collect chapbooks like Smaug ripping through a gold-sequin disco. If we’re lucky enough to leave something behind that enriches the dialogue of writerly types around the world, so much the better. Send us your stuff—we’ll only hoard it for a little while.
- up to 5 poems
- up to 4,500 words of fiction (we adore flash and micro forms too!)
- up to 4,500 words of creative nonfiction
- up to 5 pages of comics, art, & sequential art

We look for the juxtaposition of sweet and dark, funny and serious, odd and beautiful. We consider literary works and works of some genre, with a particular interest in small elements of mysticism and magic and wonder. Talking goldfish, hurricane gardens, and mad science have appeared within our pages, but so have lost lovers, drowning surfers, and prose poems about the fine art of engine repair. Show us what you've got!

We read via Submittable, and do our best to reply in under 6 weeks, but may take as long as 12 weeks. We pay in one contrib. copy and request FNASR.
