Issue No. One is now open for submissions with the deadline being 31 January 2017!
Submit your work to firstname.lastname@example.org as an attachment.
In Issue No. One we will be publishing one fiction piece 900 words or fewer. Genre and content guidelines are loose, though our fiction editor is inclined to take work with a literary tone more seriously than work without it. Creativity and experimentation are encouraged in all cases. Publication comes with a $25 payment.
Issue No. One will also include one persuasive or personal essay 250 words or fewer. Engaging, intelligent, and appropriately relaxed tone is encouraged; think of the tone of David Foster Wallace’s nonfiction. Essays should express a point of view, be able to defend it, and exhibit the personality and artistry of their author, all within around one page. Creativity and flexibility are encouraged, though the word limit is hard. Publication comes with a $25 payment.
Should Black Rabbit get competent, creative, intriguing submissions in this extremely specific category Issue No. One will feature one non-musical abstract sound clip under or around 90 seconds long. Sound collage, dramatic scenes, monologue, pseudo-music, which is left up to artists to define but should not rely too heavily on the mechanics and conventions of true music as defined by the editors, and indeed any other audio recording within the time guidelines set out above are all welcome. The editors are partial to weird and innovative works. Publication comes with a $25 payment.
Issue No. One will feature one work of abstract expressionist painting, drawing, or collage. The term ‘abstract expressionism’ is meant to be interpreted loosely, but taken seriously. Directly representative images should be avoided, or if included should be done so with intention and grace afforded to the constraints of genre noted above. Publication comes with a $25 payment. Submit with a brief (1-3 sentence) statement describing where and when you painted, drew, or collaged this piece, and, if there is a clear inspiration for or theme to it, what that might be.
Artists and authors should feel free, and indeed are encouraged, to make simultaneous submissions, although Black Rabbit asks that you notify our staff immediately if such submissions should be accepted elsewhere.
Artists and authors are encouraged to submit to every open category of submissions that they have work within the guidelines of, though they are limited to one piece in each category.
