Call for Bizarro
Closes September 15, 2014
Please send up to three unpublished 500-word or shorter pieces of bizarro or one that is over 500 words. Please send bizarro (poetry, fiction, nonfiction, genreless, unpublishable, etc.) as a doc, docx, rtf, jpeg, or pdf file. When sending a pdf file, please accompany it by a doc, docx, or rtf file when possible. All submissions should include a 100-word bio in third person and an author image for consideration. A single document is preferable. With no particular aesthetic, we are looking for interesting, engaging, challenging work, work that will make us laugh, cry, dance, discuss, or swear.
All authors are responsible for editing their own work before submitting. Unedited or sloppy work will not be considered.
We acquire first rights or one-time rights. Copyright reverts back to the author/artist after publication. We ask that whenever an author or artist republishes work that first appeared here at Festival Writer that we be given acknowledgement for that specific work or version of that work. If your work appears on your own website or blog, it is considered published.
Email submissions to:
festivaloflanguageATgmailDOTcom (Change AT to @ and DOT to . )
with bizarro, Yourlastname" as the subject line.
Authors will be notified by the end of October. Selected works will be published in a special issue.
