fiction, artwork and non-fiction). We encourage bold/striking
interpretations and reflections upon the theme.

Share your stories, ideas and perspectives with us.”

An alternative to male stereotypes is sought for this anthology from Glasgow-based indie press, Galli Books. Send up to three poems that offer “radically positive models of masculinity”. Deadline is 15 April 2018. Full details here.
Make a note for 2018: submissions are open from January to March 15th for the summer issue; and between July and September 15th for the winter issue of Southword. This international online literary journal is published biannually by the Munster Literature Centre. Submission is via the Submittable portal (if you don’t already have a Submittable account, it’s free to register and use, and is used by a lot of journals these days, to manage submissions). Submit each poem in a separate document. There is payment for accepted work.
Scottish-and-Swedish-based indie publisher Word-o-Mat seeks international submissions for edition number three of its quarterly print zines, that fit into a box the size of a cigarette packet! Submissions are especially encouraged from “female and non-binary writers”. Previously published work is considered, as long as you state where it was published, and that you retain copyright.
