I have opened UP SUBMISSIONS TO ALL. I realize that writing students (virtually everyone has been a writing student) as well as teachers need to have a voice in Teach. Write. However, I do request that in your required third person bio that you include your composition teacher experience, if you have any, or explain the impact writing instruction has had on you. I am open to both positive and negative experiences as long as writers don’t blame English teachers for everything that has gone wrong in their lives.
- No previous publication experience necessary. I am looking for work in the following categories:
- Flash Fiction, any theme or genre except erotica, extremely violent pieces or those laden with profanity. Under 1,ooo words
- Short Fiction, any theme or genre, 1,000-5,000 words, ditto on the exceptions
- Poetry, any theme or genre (note exceptions above)–up to 100 lines
- Creative non-fiction–up to 2,000 words (same exceptions as those above)
- Write Your Own–writing or poetry inspired by your own writing prompts that you have used successfully in class–up to 2,000 words (prose), 100 lines (poetry). Include 50-250 word prompt and/or explanation of prompt.
- Submissions for the Fall/Winter 2019 issue are being accepted until August 1, 2019.
- Submit previously unpublished works–single-spaced (no extra spacing), Times New Roman/12-point font, doc, docx or in rtf to the following e-mail–firstname.lastname@example.org.
- In the subject line of your submission e-mail write the word “submission” your name, category of piece and title (Example: submission_Winkler_flash fiction_What a Life!)
- REQUIRED! Include in your e-mail a 50-100 word third-person bio explaining your experience as a writing teacher OR explaining the impact writing instruction has had on you. .
- I will acquire first time and archival rights. Copyright remains with the author.
- Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please let me know if your work is accepted elsewhere.
- This is a one-woman show, so I can’t pay much, but I believe writers should be paid for their work, so I’m offering a token payment of $10 for short stories, $5 for all other categories, upon publication, payable via PayPal.
- The primary reasons for rejection are not following the guidelines and poor editing. If you have questions, please use the following contact form:
