Bare Fiction magazine is now open to submissions of poetry, fiction and plays for their next issue.
What they are looking for:
“We want our readers to discover genre-defying boldness from exciting writers in poetry, fiction and plays, literary review, interviews and commentary. To that end, we need prose, poetry and play texts that instantly grab our minds and take us on extraordinary literary journeys. If your work is competently written but doesn’t have the kind of depth that makes the readers work just that little bit harder, then it’s probably not for us. We want you to make peoples eyes open wider and their minds race with excitement as they feast on your words.”
What to submit: Submissions for short plays of around 15 minutes in length or approximately 10 pages of text are preferred. Please give a brief synopsis in your covering letter and, if applicable, include details of any performances of the text you have received or productions planned.
PLEASE ONLY MAKE A SINGLE SUBMISSION FOR ANY DEADLINE. Accepted Document Types: pdf, doc, docx, rtf.
They do not accept translations or work that has been previously published in print or online. Only original unpublished work submitted by the author will be considered. No submissions by publishers, presses or agents please.
How to apply: Ensure that your name does NOT appear on the uploaded documents. They operate a blind submission policy so that we can truly appraise your work on merit alone, with at least 2 or 3 different editors reviewing all submissions before passing comments to the editor. Uploaded file/s are electronically tagged so that the submissions team knows who they’re from.
Applications can be made via their website (scroll to the theatre submissions section).
Deadline: 6 June 2015
