Tattoo Highway Call for Submissions

27 April 2009

Tattoo Highway, an online journal of prose, poetry and art, is now reading for TH/19: “Reflections/Refractions.” Deadline June 15, 2009.

GENERAL GUIDELINES: Our tastes are eclectic. We like fresh, vivid language, and we like stories and poems that are actually about something — that acknowledge a world beyond the writer’s own psyche. If they have an edge, if
they provoke us to think or make us laugh, so much the better. We strongly suggest reading a previous issue or two before submitting.

While we particularly welcome poetry and short “screen-reader-friendly” prose or cross-genre pieces (+/- 1000 words), we do on occasion publish longer work. We encourage hypertext and new media (e.g., Flash .swf) submissions, also photographs and original graphics.

All readings are “blind” (authors’ names and other identifiers are removed). Writers may submit up to 5 poems, prosepoems or flash fictions (500 words max), or 2 longer prose pieces. While we prefer to see work that has not
been previously published, we do consider work that has appeared in small-circulation print journals. Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please let us know promptly if you place a piece elsewhere.

As always, we’re featuring our contest: “A Picture Worth 500 Words.” Details on website.

HOW TO SUBMIT: Email submissions to as Rich Text Format (RTF) attachments or as plain text in the body of your message, and with TH19 in the subject line. For hypertext and Flash submissions, provide us with an URL where we may view the work online. Send graphics in .jpg format.
