Into The Void Magazine invites you to submit your finest fiction, nonfiction, poetry and visual art for Issue Two.
The deadline for submissions is September 25th.
They say: “We want work that screams out from inside you and grabs hold of us. We want to hear what you have no choice but to tell. Unpublished and less established writers have as good a chance as any – it’s all about the writing.”
Submit stories in any genre and style of up to 4,000 words. “Although literary fiction tends to be our favourite, we love any kind of story that blows us away, from science fiction to speculative to fantasy to horror. The only requirement is writing your little heart out!”
Aim to enthral. “We prize beautiful, unique prose but clarity is a must. The most important thing we can tell you is this: Stories, always, always, always, are about people. Everything else is secondary. Write the story you simply must write – the one that screams its way out of your fingers because it needs to be read.”
Submit essays of up to 4,000 words on any topic whatsoever that conveys passion and truth, be it personal or issue-focused. “We want essays that bite!”
Submit poems in all forms and styles of up to 80 lines with no minimum line or word count.
“The key here is two-fold: A clear display of the intention to create a beautiful sounding poem, and an economical use of well-chosen words of powerful meaning and description. Poems can be about anything at all, and of all shapes.”
The magazine needs submissions of cover and internal art, in any medium including photography, provided it is submitted as a high quality jpeg image.
Submit the highest quality version of your work, so the editors can see how big it will be on the page at print quality. Don’t send a lower quality version and tell us we can have a higher one if requested.
All contributors accepted for publication will receive a cash payment of €5 via Paypal, and will receive a copy of the magazine in both print and digital. Contributors will also have the opportunity to be featured as part of the ‘Interviews with Our Contributors’ section.
Top contributors will be nominated for The Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net.
There is a submission fee of €1.40 (around $1.54/£1.17) to submit your written work.
