Reminder via Twitter from @Missouri_Review: “We are open for submissions of poetry, fiction and nonfiction all summer long, all year long. Guidelines: bit.ly/hgzpfo. (NB: No charge for submissions made via postal mail; fee for electronic submissions.)
Received via newsletter from Ploughshares: “A Note on Nonfiction: we are looking for contributions to Patricia Hampl’s all nonfiction issue for Fall 2012. Send us your essays! Or change the names back in your clearly autobiographical stories and send us those. Of course, we are still reading fiction (plus poetry) so feel free to continue to fabulate and versify.” (Same NB note from above applies here.)
“Uncle John’s Flush Fiction wants your short story! We’re looking for entertaining short fiction, suitable for bathroom (or anyroom) reading, maximum 1,000 words. Send us your best Western, mystery, horror, sci-fi, literary story, parody–all we ask if that it’s entertaining.” This print anthology will consider previously-published submissions (so long as the author retains copyright). Pays: $50, plus two copies. Deadline: August 31, 2011.
Another anthology opportunity: Trust & Treachery: Tales of Power, Intrigue, and Violence seeks ” stories that are 1000-5000 words in length. We will pay $20 per story, to be paid on January 1, 2012 or on acceptance, whichever comes later. Although the emphasis is on short stories, we will also accept select pieces of poetry for this anthology with payment at $5 per poem.” Deadline: December 15, 2011. NB: “We are very open as to genre: Mystery, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror, etc. Please no romance, YA or erotica.” (via CRWROPPS-B)
