Call for Submissions

PAYING/NO FEE Submission call – concīs, new charitable lit mag

I recently came across concīs, a fairly new lit mag that not only pays contributors, but also supports Room to Read, an organization dedicated to educating children in need in Asia and Africa. You can opt to donate your payment and concīs will double it. They also provide a Donation Tracker so you can see how much they have donated so far.

concisconcīs magazine—the first project from concīs publishing—is an online and e-pub journal devoted to brevity: the succinct, pithy, condensed, laconic, crisp, compressed and compendious. It’s simple in approach and simple in design…but not simple-minded. Genre—if you believe in such labels—is unimportant: poems, prose poems, flash fictions, micro-essays, reviews in miniature, sudden fictions, haiku, tanka, American Sentences, insights, epigrams, the unclassifiable…they’re all good.”

To learn more about what they are looking for, you can read this interview with the editor: Six Questions for Chris Lott. You can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter.

concīs pays $12.50 per piece for publication on the web site and as part of a seasonal collection/ebook/PDF (possibly in multiple e-reading formats). Upon acceptance, authors will be given an option to donate their payments to Room to Read (a 4-star charity promoting literacy and gender equality in education across Asia and Africa). Donations will be matched by concīs.”
