We are now accepting submissions of short stories and poetry for issue 12! Please read through the guidelines below, and then follow the link at the bottom to send us your work.
The deadline for this call is midnight GMT on the 7th of April 2014.
First off, take a few minutes to read through some of our back issues. They’re free to view, and this is by far the easiest way to find out whether we might enjoy your kind of writing. If you don’t like reading on screen, you can always buy a copy!
As well as following the specific guidelines below, we would encourage everyone to take a look at this excellent article from The Review Review for some general advice on the best way to go about submitting writing to magazines.
Short stories of up to around 3,000 words will be considered, both as original stories and as new translations of foreign language texts. We will consider up to two stories per author per issue. We enjoy slipstream in particular when it comes to fiction, but submission of original and unpublished work in any genre is very welcome. The only essential is that your story makes us want to read on.
We will consider up to three previously unpublished poems or translations.
We do not accept simultaneous submissions.
Translators should submit the original text, a sub-100 word biographical note for the original author, and a brief statement regarding translation rights. The best place for this would probably be your cover note.
As the magazine is not-for-profit there is currently no payment for included work, but contributors will be sent a copy of Structo before the magazine hits the streets, with the option of picking up any extra copies at cost. As the magazine grows, subscriptions are being sent to a growing list of agents, publishers, anthologists and reviewers. We submit work to the Pushcart and Forward Poetry Prizes, and continue to support our writers long after publication.
All work is published under the protection of a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 UK: England & Wales licence. Nothing in this licence impairs or restricts the individual author’s moral rights.
Does that sound good? Great. Follow this link to send us your work using Submittable. If any of the above isn’t clear, or you have any questions, feel free to get in touch.
