“Here Comes Everyone magazine is looking for submissions of poetry,
fiction, articles and artwork. We encourage bold/striking

Share your stories, ideas and perspectives with us.”

The BIG LIT Weekend Call for short poems:
BIG LIT The Stewartry Book Festival
April 14-17 2016
Poet Chrys Salt and her colleague Chik Duncan would be grateful for short poems of any kind (published or unpublished) to be displayed in high street windows over BIG LIT weekend in the Scottish town of Gatehouse of Fleet.
The poems: “are often left up long after the event and attract punters to The Festival.”
Send in Palatino 12 point font, with your name at the bottom and include acknowledgements for published poems.
For poem length, Chrys says: ‘Sonnet length is good; shorter is even better.’ (Apparently, the windows are small, Georgian ones!)
ASAP would be good but no later than 14 March.
Please send to Chik Duncan: firstname.lastname@example.org
(P.S. I have it on good authority that, if you do send your poems, they will still be eligible for submission elsewhere, as public display does not constitute actual publication.)
You have until 30 November 2015 to submit up to five poems for the spring issue of The Dark Mountain Project.
Copied from The DMP website: “The Dark Mountain Project is a network of writers, artists and thinkers who have stopped believing the stories our civilisation tells itself. We see that the world is entering an age of ecological collapse, material contraction and social and political unravelling, and we want our cultural responses to reflect this reality rather than denying it.”

Lovely British indie publisher The Emma Press is open to pamphlet submissions until Sunday 13th December 2015. I think the submissions can be from anywhere in the world (but do check). Whilst there isn’t a fee as such, you must have bought an Emma Press publication within the same calendar year as your submission – an ebook is fine. For full details see: http://theemmapress.com/about/submissions/
The University of Toronto’s annual print anthology, Scarborough Fair, is accepting Writing and Visual Art through December 31, 2015.

The Letters Page is a journal published by Nottingham University’s English Department (in the UK). Copied from the website:
‘We want your letters for Issue 6, and we want them soon. We want stories, essays, poems, memoir, travelogue, reportage, conversation, criticism, speculation, illustration, deviation, and more. If you can fit it in an envelope and put it in the post to us at the address below, we will consider it for publication. There is no theme; there are no restrictions. Be smart about it: we are a correspondence-based literary journal with a limited number of pages, and in general shortness and smallness is a virtue. But we are looking for works of literary wonder, and we have no wish to inhibit you. Surprise us.’
Check out their page for more info: http://www.theletterspage.ac.uk/letterspage/submissions.aspx
We will pay £100 for every submission published.
Closing Date for Issue 6 is April 22, 2015.
Send your submissions to:
The Letters Page,
School of English, University of Nottingham, NG7 2RD, UK.
