Oklahoma Writing @ Sugar Mule Call for Submissions

7 June 2009

Announcing a Special Issue of Sugar Mule
www.SugarMule.com
Writing Oklahoma into the 21st Century

We invite all writers currently living in Oklahoma to submit to this special issue of Sugar Mule; all genres are solicited. Only writers who are current residents of Oklahoma may submit. While the editor does not require that Oklahoma is topic or theme of the writing (the editor wishes to encourage experimental submissions), she will admit to a bias for stories, poems, and essays that capture the near-ineffable oddness and beauty and pain of living in the State. All work submitted will be considered for the Sugar Mule Oklahoma Special Edition (February 2009); Mongrel Empire Press, in partnership with Sugar Mule, is also planning an expanded, print edition and all submissions will be considered for the print edition as well.

SEND:
three to five poems (no more than 15 pages)
up to 15 pages of prose, fiction and/or non-fiction
(page counts are based on 12 point Times New Roman, double-spaced)

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 1 NOVEMBER 2009
PLEASE READ AND FOLLOW ALL SUBMISSION DETAILS BELOW
SUBMISSIONS THAT DO NOT FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.

SUBMISSION DETAILS/GUIDELINES:
Sugar Mule does not pay for accepted work(s) at this time.
We wish had grant or advertising money to pay for such–we are always exploring possibilities so check back if that is a concern for you.

Sugar Mule wishes to use only new material not seen before elsewhere on the internet.

As to rights, you retain all rights to your work; we retain none.

Otherwise, we welcome submissions of poetry, fiction, and all genres of non-fiction–however search engine restrictions force SM to put certain words in this form: “f—” for example.

Submit ONLY VIA EMAIL with the actual submission included as an email file attachment. You MUST write “SUGAR MULE OK ISSUE SUBMISSION” IN THE SUBJECT HEADER. Send submissions to the Oklahoma Special Issue
editor, Jeanetta Calhoun Mish at tonguetiedwoman@gmail.com.

DO NOT send submissions for the Oklahoma Writing Issue to the Sugar Mule main address.

In your file attachment be SURE to include YOURNAME and EMAIL ADDRESS on every page of the attached file
send files in any version of an MS Word, iWork Pages, rtf, ascii, html or .txt file to: tonguetiedwoman@gmail.com

If accepted you will be required to bracket any italicized or bolded words in your work with the HTML marks and ; and and , respectively–but you can submit work without doing that.

NOTE: if your poetry uses irregular lines that are horizontally spaced like:
the rain
in Spain

DO NOT send them with the spacing dependent on the word-processing MARGIN RIGHT command or TABS; REPLACE all such with spacing based on the space bar;–the reason is that it is difficult to reproduce such spacing in HTML code for the website unless it is done with the space bar.

For the Oklahoma Special Issue, email submissions to Jeanetta Calhoun Mish: tonguetiedwoman@gmail.com.

IF YOUR WORK IS CHOSEN WE WILL REQUEST A VERY SHORT BIO
