Taking Submissions: Eye to the Telescope #46

Deadline: September 15th, 2022
Payment: US 4¢/word rounded up to nearest dollar; minimum US $4, maximum $25
Theme: poems inspired by works of art that exist only in your own imagination (or that of others), from any period in time or space.

Eye to the Telescope 46, Quest, will be edited by Wendy Van Camp.

The hero’s journey is one of the oldest forms of storytelling.  It has many components that can go in a thousand directions with a thousand faces.  Your quest, should you care to accept, is to use one part of the hero’s journey as the focus of your quest poem.  It could be a call to adventure or the refusal of that call.  Meeting of a new mentor and its consequences, or facing an ordeal that creates inner change.  Perhaps it is the moment of return when the hero brings new understanding to her people.  Let the twelve steps of the Hero’s Journey be your inspiration.  Your poem could be fantasy, science fiction or horror based.  Let your imagination be your guide.

We are eager to read what you send!

Taking Submissions: The Cafe Irreal Summer Window 2022

Deadline: July 1st, 2022
Payment: One cent U.S. per word ($2 minimum)
Theme: Fantastic Fiction You really NEED to read the description below.

The Cafe Irreal is a quarterly webzine that presents a kind of fantastic fiction infrequently published in English. This fiction, which we would describe as irreal, resembles the work of writers such as Franz Kafka, Kobo Abe, Clarice Lispector and Jorge Luis Borges. As a type of fiction it rejects the tendency to portray people and places realistically and the need for a full resolution to the story; instead, it shows us a reality constantly being undermined. Therefore, we’re interested in stories by writers who write about what they don’t know, take us places we couldn’t possibly go, and don’t try to make us care about the characters. We would also suggest you take a look at the current issue, archives, and theory (especially the essay, “What is irrealism?”) pages on this web site.
