Submissions for our Summer 2013 issue close TOMORROW AT MIDNIGHT, y’all. You have until 11:59:59 on this dear Friday, March 1 to send us your fiction, creative essays, poems, artwork or photography to [email@example.com]. After that, we’re closing our doors to submissions for two whole months, until May 1; we learned with the last sub round that it (almost immediately) grew difficult to read through and weigh the subs currently under consideration while collecting myriad subs for the next issue. All four of us have day jobs; we don’t have the time, sadly, to keep rolling journal submissions the way we have in the past, not now that Broad! has grown so big.
That being said, we are instituting a monthly, themed readers’ column on this site. If Broad! is a community, it’s one of everyone –– not just us editors yammering on. We’d like to see your creative writing featured on the blog! Send us fiction, CNF, or poetry under 500 words to firstname.lastname@example.org within the timeline specified (usually a week) and it might end up featured here. This month’s theme is “clean”; please send your piece to us under the email subject “Reader Column Submission” by the end of Friday, March 8, 2013. The selected pieces will be put up on the website in the second half of the month.
Let’s say that fiction, personal essays, or poetry aren’t your thing, though. Which is totally fine! They’re not everyone’s thing. But book reviews, somehow, seem to be read by everybody and anybody. Do you ever find yourself drifting into a haze when thinking about a recent plot twist in the book you’re reading? Did you love (or hate) such a book and now can’t stop daydreaming about the lead character? If so, you should write us a book review. Email us with the review and book details; your thoughts could end up on our front page slideshow!
Happy submitting, everyone!
