The Brooklyner, to be published quarterly, is “currently reading for our inaugural issue, which will largely include fiction and nonfiction.

We are not seeking novellas or novel excerpts.” Pays: $25-$75 for prose (depending on length); $25/poem.
Attention, writers in southwest England: “A new short story competition invites writers resident in the South West of England to submit stories of between 1,000 and 3,000 set in a sustainable future at any time between five and five million years from now. Will we have succumbed to the floodwaters, or will geo-engineering save the day? Did we cure our addiction to fossil fuels, or did it turn out not to be necessary? Will your story be narrated by one of your descendants, or a computer, or a jellyfish? Or does God have something to say about it all?” Deadline is 30 June 2011, and there is no entry fee. Cash prizes: First prize (£250), Second prize (£75), and Third prize (£50). “All prizewinners will be included in the ‘Imagine There’s a Future’ Anthology to be published September 2011. Highly commended entries will be included in the anthology with the authors’ permission.”
