“Exhaustion: Limited Reserves”

Chapbook – Poetry and Flash Fiction

Deadline: May 31, 2022

A common human experience is exhaustion in its many guises. Feeling used up or worn out. Reaching the limits of our personal and collective resources. Tapping out. Laying waste to the planet. Burning fuel until there’s nothing left but fumes. Covering a topic in its entirety, until everything that could be said has been said.

This chapbook will engage these and other notions of exhaustion.

Submission Guidelines:

Flash Fiction: maximum 1000 words (no minimum). All genres welcome. The more imaginative, the better.

Poems: maximum 60 lines each INCLUDING BLANK LINES (shorter is preferred – long pieces will need to earn their length). All styles welcome.

Payment$15 CAD upon publication ($10 for reprints)
All payments through PayPal, Wise, or bank transfer.

No submission fee.

Multiple submissions: Yes. You can submit as many pieces as you like. Please submit each poem or story as a NEW SUBMISSION.

Simultaneous submissions: Yes. Please email [email protected] right away if your piece is accepted elsewhere.

Reprints: Previously published pieces will be considered, although we prefer original works. If you do send a reprint, please provide the name of the journal/date of publication, so that we can give proper attribution.

Format: We aren’t too hung up on formatting. Just make it easy for us to read. No PAGES files. DOC or DOCX preferred. PDF accepted for poetry. Please title your file as follows: Title – Author Name
