Taking Submissions: Flytrap Issue #11

October 31, 2013


Deadline: October 31st, 2013
Payment: $0.05/ word for fiction, and a copy of the digital issue on publication

Flytrap, the little zine with teeth, will open to submissions for issue #11 on September 3, 2013. Fiction: I will consider work up to 5,000 words (query for longer, but don’t let it hurt your feelings if I say no). Any form, any style, any genre welcome; cross-genre and experimental work especially appreciated. I consider vignettes, fantasias, and hallucinagenia in addition to more traditional narrative approaches. Surprise me, or delight me, or both. I like stories with sex and feminism and apocalypses and snarky humor in them, but don’t let that limit you. Straightforward adult content and conventional horror are unlikely to find a home here, but otherwise, I’m happy to consider pretty much anything. Send stories to Heather Shaw at [email protected]. Send in the body of an e-mail, or as Word or RTF attachments.

Non-Fiction: Due to enthusiastic pre-soliciting, we are full on non-fiction for this issue.

Poetry: We are not open to poetry submissions for issue #11. We’re having a featured poet instead. But you might be able to slip a prose poem past the fiction editor. Multiple submissions are okay, within reason (that is, sending two pieces won’t annoy us too much, but sending three probably will).

No simultaneous submissions (but we’ll try to answer every submission by mid-November, so it shouldn’t cramp your submitting style too much).

Deadline: We open September 3, 2013, and close October 31, 2013. Payment: $0.05/ word for fiction, and a copy of the digital issue on publication.

Via: Kickstarter.
