Rolling Ongoing Submissions: Typewriter Emergencies

Payment: 1 cent per word
Note: This magazine opens and closes without dates. They’re open at the time of scheduling but ho knows when they’ll close and re-open next?

Typewriter Emergencies is seeking works featuring furry characters. We’re looking for stories, book reviews, articles, and any other form of furry material. The journal accepts work that is considered rated R or Less. You can throw in the word “fuck” around a few times, but no excessive sex, blood, and guts pretty much. Typewriter Emergencies publishes under the philosophy of degenerate literature. We’re not here to be proper, we’re here to make art. We don’t have a specific theme for our issues, therefore it’s free reign. Themes may be implemented in the future. 

Typewriter Emergencies is an online only literary journal. We do not print issues upon publication. All issues of Typewriter Emergencies can be read for free through ISSUU or a downloadable PDF, or a Kindle/Nook version can be purchased for $0.99.

We plan on publishing at least twice a year. If we feel we can take on a heavier load, we’ll open up for more issues.

 

 

Payment is $0.01 per word.

All rights revert back to the author. We simply ask for the right to publish the story for the period this journal is active. 

Simultaneous submissions are fine. It is your responsibility to notify us if your work is accepted elsewhere.

Ongoing Submissions: Terse

Payment: $10.00 USD

We have a rolling and open submissions policy (we accept unsolicited submissions year round). There are no fees associated with submissions. This is a volunteer run, not for profit publication.

Contributor Q & A

What topics/themes are you looking for?

worlding, futures, identity, technology, hyperreality, embodiment, healing, mourning, the tarot/divination, memory, small press culture, captivity/confinement/incarceration, disability

What mediums can I use in this space?

poetry (erasure poetry, found poetry, experimental poetry, all poetry!), collage, critical essays (academic-style essays are considered), reviews, interviews, mixed media, audio recordings, visual art (drawings, paintings, photographs), creative non-fiction, science fiction, flash fiction, letters, mix tapes

How do you accept audio files? Why would I consider submitting in audio format? 

In the past we’ve designed videos to accompany the work of poets. They turned out pretty cool! Here is one you can check out for yourself: Four Poems by Noelia Young. 

We’d like to do this more! Know that it takes time and we cannot do this for every writer, but let us know if it’s something that interests you.

Do I relinquish my rights to my piece once you publish it?

No. We actually don’t mind if you’d like to submit your work for consideration somewhere else after we’ve published it. However, we’d like to receive credit for publishing it first. We also understand people grow and change, so if there’s ever a time when you’d like us to remove a piece just let us know.

Do ya pay?

Yes. We don’t have much in the way of resources, but we feel writers should receive a show of good faith for publishing with us. We also do this to pressure outlets with more resources to pay their writers. We will pay $10.00 USD via PayPal for any work published with us.

What is the length requirement for essays to be considered?

For anything considered an essay we’d expect it to be however long it needs to be in order to do its job. We’re also volunteers, so please: nothing over 7,000 words. If it’s longer than that we’d maybe consider breaking it down into a series. Pitch us if you are toying with sending us a super long piece.

Who can submit?

Creative people who want opportunities in publishing and have an affinity to social justice and activist worlding technologies.

How much can I send at one time?

2-3 finished pieces of any medium.

How long do you usually spend reviewing submissions?

Due to the high volume of submissions coming our way we are unable to respond to each one in kind. When sending a submission you will receive an automated message letting you know your transmission got through to us.

What’s a sure way to be rejected immediately?

You’ll be rejected immediately if there are any racist, homophobic, sexist, transphobic, xenophobic, ableist or otherwise abusive issues. Your piece will also be removed without explanation if we find out you are publishing this trash elsewhere and we just didn’t know about it when we published you. This also goes for the email you send along with your submission.

Do you accept simultaneous submissions?

Yes. We think it is unrealistic to assume you only have eyes for us. Yet we’d like you to tell us RIGHT AWAY if your piece is accepted elsewhere. Like RIGHT when you get the email from another pub. This saves us from reviewing something you have no intention of publishing with us. Seems reasonable!

How often do you publish?

Monthly and as pieces are accepted.

Anything else I should add to my submission?

Yes. Please include biographical information along with any social media links or blog info. We like to know more about our contributors before we work with them.

Who are the editors?

Mauve Perle Tahat  {executive editor}

Wes Bishop {assistant editor}

Karissa Lang {poetry editor}

Ben Berman Ghan {prose editor}

Moriah M. Mylod {contributing editor}

How do I submit?

Sample submission:

“Dear [find editors’ names above for submission],

Here is my piece _______. It is [explain what your piece is about and what your intention was in writing it in one or two sentences].

This is my short bio:

Here are my social media links:”

Anything else I should know?

Submit via our email: [email protected]

We’ve been fortunate: over a short time we’ve worked with tremendous contributors who’ve written about art, technology, embodiment, critical theory, and self-discovery (among other topics). Take a look around to see what we’ve published to get a feel for TERSE.

All submitted stories and poems go through an initial blind reading process so we ask you to help by ensuring that your document does not contain any identifying author information. Please especially check any headers or footers. Your document should only contain the title and the story.

Do not include any identifying information (name, pen name, address, phone or email address) in your document.

All submissions should be sent through the submissions engine.

Your piece should be sent as an attached RTF file

Do:

  • use a fixed width font (ie Courier New)
  • size 12.indent the first line of each paragraph by 1cm
  • double-space lines (except in poetry)
  • indicate section breaks with a centered * * *
  • use Australian spelling (ie “s” instead of “z”)

  • centre justify your paragraphs
  • use strange fonts
  • include your name in the document header
  • put anything in the document footer.

You CAN:

  • use a pen-name
  • add page numbers.

Why do we do things this way?

    • The editorial team of ASM is scattered over most of Australia, and since nearly all our communications are electronic, printed submissions are less useful than they might otherwise be. While we will accept printed submissions for people who for some reason or another can’t manage email, it will get scanned into electronic format and emailed to the various readers and editors anyway. So sending electronically saves the editors a labour-intensive step and saves you postage.
    •  The reason for an attached RTF rather than plain text is the submissions editor finds them easier to manipulate, and prefers to see the things like italics presented as the author intended, rather than the makeshifts required by plain text.
    • All stories submitted go through an initial blind reading process. That means that the stories are sent to our panel of readers with no author information attached. This is why we want the author information in one place where it is easily removed.
    • Since this is an Australian publication, we’d like all of our stories to be written with Aussie spelling for the sake of consistency.

Ongoing Submissions: Every Day Fiction

Payment: $3

Every Day Fiction is looking for very short (flash) fiction, of up to 1000 words. There’s no such thing as too short — if you can do the job in 50 words, have at it! — but our readers prefer pieces that tell or at least hint at a complete story (some sort of action or tension rising to a moment of climax, and at least a clue toward a resolution, though it doesn’t have to be all spelled out).

All fiction genres are acceptable, and stories that don’t fit neatly into any genre are welcome too. While personal experiences and other non-fiction can be great sources of inspiration, please turn them into fiction for us, or send them elsewhere.

Our readership is adult, so children’s stories are unlikely to be accepted unless they are relevant to adults as well. On the other hand, we are not impressed by gratuitous sex and violence, or pointlessly foul language; edgy content should be necessary and appropriate to the plot and characters.

It ought to go without saying that any story submitted to Every Day Fiction must be your own unpublished original creation. If you publish a story on a blog, even your own personal blog, or any website accessible to the general public (i.e., if the story can be found and read online without a password or friend status or other limitation), it is considered published and therefore inappropriate for our market.

Ongoing Submissions: Glintmoon

Payment: $5 USD per unpublished poem

Glintmoon exclusively publishes poems of ten (10) lines or fewer. We will consider any and all poetry that follows this one rule. However, it must be said that we are not partial to traditional forms, such as the haiku or the tanka, nor do we particularly enjoy rhymed or metred work. This doesn’t mean that we’re not looking for poems of three or five lines. In fact, we absolutely do want to read three and five line poems. We simply aren’t interested in many of the structures and intentions behind traditional forms.

We are a diversity-oriented publication and encourage submissions from underrepresented voices. In particular, we’re looking for work that considers race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, identity, and disability in original and meaningful ways. We want to see fervent, unorthodox poetry that stretches and reimagines what the short form is and what it can do. Give us life and depth, the human and the now.

It should go without saying but do not send us work appropriating experiences and/or identities not your own. We do not tolerate bigotry of any kind. This means no racism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, transmisogyny, ableism, fatphobia, exoticizing/fetishizing of cultures, communities, and peoples, Islamophobia, etc. Should you send us work blatantly containing any of the above, your submission will be deleted without response, as will all subsequent queries. It is a waste of our time to respond to submissions that do not respect basic human decency.

Some poets whom we are fond of include (in no notable order): Amy Clampitt, Chen Chen, Louise Glück, Eileen Myles, Lucie Brock-Broido, Gertrude Stein, Danez Smith, Timothy Liu, H.D., Richie Hofmann, John Ashbery, Maggie Smith, Audre Lorde, sam sax, Rita Dove, Maggie Nelson, Rickey Laurentiis, Mary Szybist, Seamus Heaney, Mark Doty, Hieu Minh Nguyen, and many, many others.

We accept submissions year-round on a rolling basis. Issues are published in February, May, August, and November.

We only accept electronic submissions. Please use our editorial address: editor at glintmoon dot com.

We do accept simultaneous submissions. We do not accept unsolicited reprints.

Send up to five poems per submission and a bio. All poems must be unpublished. This includes personal websites, blogs, etc. Please wait for a response before supplying us with new work.

Please use “SUBMISSION: Poet’s Name” as the subject line of your submission. If you do not follow this simple request, your submission will not be read.

We strongly prefer that you paste your poems in the body of the email in plain text. However, if your work has special formatting, you may attach it as a Word, Pages, PDF, or RTF file.

We endeavor to respond to every submission within two months. If you have not heard from us after two months, please send us a query with “QUERY: Poet’s Name” in the subject line.

We currently pay $5 USD per unpublished poem via PayPal. We purchase First North American Serial Rights and First World Electronic Rights, as well as Non-Exclusive Anthology and Non-Exclusive Archival Rights. All rights revert to the poet upon publication.
