Submissions wanted

Worldwide submissions are invited by bi-monthly magazine Here Comes Everyone, on the theme of East and West. Deadline for the next themed issue is 6 October 2016. The following is in the editors’ own words:
Here Comes Everyone magazine is looking for submissions of poetry,
fiction, articles and artwork. We encourage bold and/or striking
interpretations upon the theme East and West.
“Is there truly a cultural dichotomy between East and West, or is it all
just lines etched on a map? With immigration increasingly becoming a
bread-and-butter issue for politicians, the media is in conflict: does
integration enhance diversity for all, or dilute the respective
cultures? Share your stories and perspectives with us. Some thinking
points to get you started:
– Is it a small world, after all?
– Do people living on the east side and west sides of cities experience
those cities differently?
– Is ‘The West’ a place or a state of mind? (Where are Australia and New
Zealand?)
-Dual heritage, cultural pluralisms. What are some experiences of people
whose lives are a mix of both East and West?
– What sort of future could the globalisation trend bring about?
– Have western impressions of the East changed over time? (Since the
Cold War? Since WWII? Since the Crusades?)
-What might the implications of migration be on urban cultural policy?”

Anthology submissions

The Chicken Soup for the Soul feel-good publishers have a lot of submissions opportunities on their website.

Call for Short Poems for Public Display

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Poet Chrys Salt and her colleague Chik Duncan would be grateful for short poems of any kind (published or unpublished) to be displayed in high street windows over BIG LIT weekend in the Scottish town of Gatehouse of Fleet.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: chik@swet.co.uk
(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.)
