Absence, our fourth anthology for 2016, invites original and previously unpublished poetry and flash fiction in the theme of Absence, however you choose to interpret or include that theme, to its pages. . .
Deadline for Submissions: November 30, 2016
Send 1-3 poems or 1 flash fiction piece (750 words or less) or in the body of an email to: kindofahurricanepress(at)yahoo(dot)com
Subject line of email: "[author's name] [Genre] Submission for Absence"
Please include a third-person author bio with your submission.
By submitting their work, upon acceptance the author grants Kind of a Hurricane Press one time print/electronic publication rights. Upon publication, all rights revert immediately to the author. If a piece published in Absence is later published elsewhere, we respectfully ask that you credit us as the original market.
Absolutely NO simultaneous submissions. The editor will do her best to review work and respond in as timely a manner as humanly possible. Simultaneous submissions just add unnecessary complications that interfere with that process.
Absolutely NO attachments.Any submission received that has an attachment will be deleted.(Please do not make me banish potentially excellent work for such a pointless mistake in following directions.)
What the editors want to see:
- High quality Free Verse poetry – literary, mainstream, and experimental forms are welcome
- High quality Flash Fiction
- Imagery that makes her feel something strongly – whatever that something is
- Prose Poetry is also welcome, but must be exceptional
- Please note overtly violent (i.e. gore for the sake of gore) or racist materials are not welcome or appreciated.
Payment: contributors to our anthologies receive a free copy of the ebook version of that anthology. The ebook will be made available to the contributors prior to the print publication going to press. In the future, we hope to be able to provide monetary payment to our contributors, but we are not quite at that point yet.
We look forward to seeing your work!
