Calls for submissions: NEON LITERARY MAGAZINE

9 January 2016

HOW TO SEND WORK FOR PUBLICATION

Before sending your work for possible publication… please read the magazine! Doing so is the only way to understand what I want to publish, and doesn’t cost much. In fact, digital issues are free and print issues cost less than a sandwich and a coffee. By subscribing, purchasing a sample copy, or making a donation you’ll be helping to keep the magazine alive, and allowing me to pay the authors I publish.

You can find a wealth of good reasons to subscribe to Neon in this article. I hope that you’ll consider doing so; if just one in ten people who submitted work also subscribed to the magazine, Neon would never be short of funds. If you do support the magazine with a purchase, subscription or donation, please mention this in your cover letter. As a thankyou for your support, I’ll try and provide some personal feedback on your submission.

 

1. What I’m Looking For

There is no set word limit, but please send enough work to cover approximately three pages of the magazine. This could be one story, a couple of flash fictions, or several poems. I prefer darker pieces, especially those with an element of the surreal or speculative. I am open to reading anything, however, and am often surprised by pieces that don’t fall into these categories.

Images, comics and graphic poems are also welcome, as are self-contained extracts. If you have any doubts about whether something is suitable, please send it anyway and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

 

2. Terms

Reprints and simultaneous submissions are okay, but please let me know if a piece is published elsewhere. On acceptance Neon takes one-time non-exclusive rights to your work, as well as the right to archive it. Accepted authors receive one contributor copy, as well as a royalty derived from sales, subscriptions and donations – usually about £8.

 

3. How To Submit

Include a covering letter and a 50-word biography in the body of the email. The subject line should include the word “Submission”. The editor is Krishan Coupland. Send work by email to subs@neonmagazine.co.uk. Paste work into the body of the email if possible.

Please add Neon to your “Safe Senders” list, and query if you have received no response after two months. You may also wish to follow Neon on Facebook, Twitter or Google+, or join the mailing list, to be kept informed of any submissions-related news.

If you are new to sending your work out for publication, you might find this guide useful.

 

4. Feedback

If you are a current subscriber to the magazine, or if you have recently made a donation orpurchased a sample copy, please mention this in your covering letter. I’ll try and give some personalised feedback in my response. All submissions are given equal consideration, regardless of whether or not the author supports the magazine.

Publishing Cycle & General Information

Sentinel Literary Quarterly is currently published on 31st January, 30th April, 31st July, and 31st October. The magazine appears in print, online and eBook formats. Due to space constraints, some items accepted for publication may only appear in the online version, while some may appear both online and in print. There will be some that will appear in print only. All items accepted for publication always appear in the eBook. What appears where is at the discretion of the editors and publisher. Please bear these options in mind while submitting to SLQ.

 

General Submissions Guidelines

 

Deadlines:

December 31st for January 31st publication.

March 31st for April 30th publication.

June 30th for July 31 publication.

September 30th for October 31st Publication.

 

Please note that if you submit your work within the window for a particular quarter and we like your work but may not be able to use it that quarter, we will write to let you know when your work will get published.

Poems: Submit up to 6 poems on any subject of 60 lines or less, or a long poem up to 200 lines plus 2 shorter poems. We generally like to see a range of poems from a poet to help us choose the very best from that author.

Fiction: Submit Short Stories, or Excerpts from Novels on any subject or theme up to 5000 words long. It is probably best to keep your story around the 3000 word mark. However a story needs to be as long or as short as it needs to be. If it has to get to 5000 words, so be it, but not a word more.

Essays: May be up to 10,000 words long.

Plays: Short plays or excerpts from longer plays no longer than 6,000 words. Plays may be on any subject.

Reviews and Interviews: These may be up to 3000 words long.

All materials submitted must be in English Language. We encourage poems written in other languages as long as they are sent together with appropriate translations.

The name of the author as he/she would like to be credited must appear on the materials.

Please send a photograph of yourself in Jpeg format to go on your page.

Copyright: Remains with the authors at all times.

Simultaneous Submissions: We discourage simultaneous submissions. The turnaround time is 8 weeks. Hopefully that is not too long for you.

 

Previously Published Work:

We discourage submissions of previously published work. If we feel strongly about a previously published work we may solicit it. If your work has been published elsewhere and you feel it has not been given the exposure it deserves, and you feel strongly about it, by all means submit it, but please mention where and when it was first published.

Payment: Sentinel Literary Quarterly does not currently pay authors any money for work accepted and published. Every author published in print will receive a complimentary contributor’s copy.

Important: Please submit only materials that are your original work. Bear in mind that Sentinel Literary Quarterly is a magazine and not a blog or discussion forum. Therefore the form and content of any work published in the magazine is final and any aspect of the work, or its authorship, may not be modified after publication. We may alter the content of your work if requested only if the work has been published online. Requests for modification of content, authorship or deletion will not be entertained.

Featured Country

From time to time we will have a section called Featured Country in which we will present a supplement on that country’s literature. If you would like to submit your work specifically for the Featured Country Supplement, please indicate that in your submission. For instance if you are submitting to the issue that will have Argentina as a featured country, in your submission subject, type: ‘Poetry Submission (Argentina Supplement)’ To be included in the Supplement, your poem, essay, short story, or interview will have relevance to the featured country. If we will feature a country in any quarterly we will make a call for submissions on this page.

Submissions by e-mail only:

Send all Poems to Mandy Pannett:  poetryeditor@sentinelquarterly.com  

Send all Short Stories, and excerpts from novels to Ngozi Chuma-Udeh:  fictioneditor@sentinelquarterly.com

Submissions are currently open. Open reading periods are held from the beginning of March through May and from the beginning of September through end of November. There is no reading fee during open reading periods.

Wag’s Revue compensates its writers $100 per piece (interview, poem or group of poems, essay, or short story).
If you’re interested in interviewing a writer, comedian or some other some such waggish luminary for an upcoming an issue, send an email introducing yourself, the figure in question, why you want to interview him or her, and whether you have access to said person already, to sandra@wagsrevue.com.

Call for submissions: Indian Ink – bi-monthly magazine

24 November 2012

Indian Ink, a bi-monthly magazine, is a locus for creative expressions in English, and aspires to address the lacunae in the little magazine circuit. The sober realization that Kerala has not been able to sustain the sporadic attempts at establishing a literary space for creative writing in English, explains the rationale for launching Indian Ink. Accommodating established and new voices in a happy mix, Indian Ink aims for a pan Indian reach, and will have room for artistic innovations, mixed genres and dialogues among languages and regions.

Indian Ink, a well-received and beautifully illustrated little magazine in print,

published from Kerala, India, is open to  flash fiction, poems, creative non-fiction,

translations, art work, jokes, reviews, sms poems and irregulars.

Submissions (of less than 120 words), with a short bio, may be mailed to: indian.ink.mag@gmail.com.
