Taking Submissions: SubTerrain Issue #68

May 1, 2014


Deadline: May 1st, 2014
Payment: Poetry: $50 per poem, Prose: $50 per page

Issue #68 (Summer/Fall) — “PULP FICTION”

With a nod of the hat to the popular pulp writing of the early 20th century, this issue will feature fiction that epitomizes the pulp genre—larger-than-life (often hardboiled) characters in sensational scenarios (detective, mystery, adventure, spicy). We’re looking for material that either satirizes or parodies the genre or spins a gripping tale in the style of the day.
