STORY #2: THE MONSTERS ISSUE
Deadline: July 15, 2014
The new Story magazine is seeking work for our upcoming issue dedicated to monsters---in whatever form they might come: physical or psychological, imaginary or real, inherited or invented.
Story is a biannual magazine about the human need for story. We’re looking for stories in whatever shape and form they come: fiction, poetry, computer code, graphic design, lyric essay, comic strip, grocery list, memoir, conceptual art, and so on.
We're looking for work that addresses the theme (depicts monsters), deconstructs the theme (unpacks monster ideologies), or even expands upon the theme (adds to the monster canon).
A traditional short story? Certainly. A poem-comic? Yes please. A zoology report on scorpions? We'd love to check it out. An essay about your Nazi-sympathizing father? Send it. A mathematical theorem? Why not. A political treatise? You bet.
The theme is meant to be broad. Story + monster. In whatever form.
We are looking for high quality work that transports, mesmerizes, disturbs. Authors are paid for original material.
