Genre fiction, experimental work, Literature (with a capital L): whatever you have that you’d like to throw our way, just so long as it’s unpublished. We are also looking for two dimensional representation of all forms of visual art. For submissions across all genres we would prefer works that in some way highlights this year’s theme: Resurgam, a latin word that means ‘I will rise again’.” Pays: “We pay contributors in one copy, and $20 per poem and/or printed page of prose. We pay visual contributors $30 per piece.” (via Duotrope.com)
