Call for Submissions

PAYING/REPRINTS No Fee Submission Call, [SOFTNESS] Anthology, Deadline: July 15, 2016


1110 Dickinson House (Miel Books) is a small, high-quality print journal currently open for themed submissions of poetry and creative nonfiction. The current project theme is [ S O F T N E S S ] and is defined broadly, yet carefully, on their submission page. In short, softness is defined “as a way of being in the world: [ S O F T N E S S ] as ethics, aesthetics, politics, pedagogy, strategy.”

“The editors are seeking text or image-text in all forms—prose, poetry, fragments, hybrid or null forms, incomplete objects, notes—that explores, rests within, arises from, or occupies the space of the [ S O F T ].” They are encouraging “Writers of color, queer writers, trans writers, women writers, writers with disabilities” to send in their work.”

I recommend submitting early. Anthologies tend to fill their pages before the deadline. For more info on how to submit to literary magazine and journals, read my Submission Tips here.

DEADLINE: July 15, 2016

FORMS:  “all forms of text, including handwritten fragments or notes to be reproduced as images (black/white). We reserve the right to excerpt work.”

NOTES: Accepts reprints!

PAYMENT: “Once the contents of [ S O F T N E S S ] have been confirmed, we will launch a crowdfunding initiative to pay honoraria to all writers involved, and to pay for the printing and distribution of the anthology. In addition to an honorarium, writers will receive two copies of the anthology.”
