I WANT YOUR WORDS: Interfictions Call for Submissions
Friends! Writers! Wanderers! People who got here by mistake! I want your words for the new Interfictions: A Journal of Interstitial Arts.
Interfictions started as an anthology of interstitial fiction: the first one was edited by Delia Sherman and Theodora Goss, the second by Delia Sherman and Christopher Barzak. The new, online Interfictions, launching in spring 2013, supported by the non-profit Interstitial Arts Foundation, will publish fiction, nonfiction and poetry. And of course, everything in between, because everything is actually in between! I am the editor for poetry and nonfiction; Christopher Barzak and Meghan McCarron are the fiction editors. The whole thing is going to be amazing and I am thrilled about it and you should go here to see the guidelines and submit when we open on February 1!
We'll be open Feb. 1-Feb. 28. So get ready and write that weird thing you were going to write except you were worried it wasn't a thing, and polish up the old things that everybody told you were not things, because we may very well think they are things, and want to publish them.
Pay rates: Fiction, 5 cents/word; Nonfiction, 3 cents/word; Poetry, $20/poem (flat rate)
I am really excited about this project. I hope I see some prose poems, and some prose/verse mixes. I hope I see some sort of raw essay-writing. You know, stuff that's as erudite as any academic essay, but takes risks an academic essay never could. Think Reza Negarestani's The Dust Enforcer. Think Anne Carson's The Glass Essay. Think weird, wonderful, important writing--ideas that should be Out There. Ideas that ARE Out There. Think in between.
