Black Rabbit

Issue No. One is now open for submissions with the deadline being 31 January 2017!

Submit your work to blackrabbit.submissions@gmail.com as an attachment.

Fiction:

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.

Non-Fiction:

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.

Audio:

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.

Visual Arts:

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.

We want writers that get birds and their people. Maybe you’re the person who refers to birds as “birbs.” Maybe you’re the person who all your friends call the “crazy bird lady/man.” If so, let’s talk.

What else are we looking for? People who care: about the craft of writing, about the subject matter, about our readers’ interests.  Read More.

The guest blogger positions are paid positions. If you would like to be a guest blogger for The Introspectionist, please submit a brief description of your topic idea, including several specific post ideas, and two blog posts as examples of your writing style. You can submit your ideas to GuestBlogger@TheIntrospectionist.com

When it comes to winter, nothing could be more Knittylike. We need layers to stay warm, lots of yummy sweaters especially. Cardigans, pullovers, vests…maybe not dickies. But also hats, socks, mittens, gloves, scarves…and what else? What have you created that our readers can’t wait to see? Think traditional shapes knit in an untraditional way, innovative techniques or innovative uses of traditional techniques. Get creative!

Remember that we love new things that have only existed previously in your imagination (remember this and this?)! Be creative! Innovate! We exist to give your work a very visible platform so you can reach thousands and thousands of knitters. So give it your best shot!

To get some ideas about what we love for Winter, take a peek at some of our previous issues.

New West is a smart guide to the issues, trends and events that impact the fabric of the region and it stands for forward thinking about the big picture.

The main topics we cover and discuss on New West are broadly: Culture, politics, growth, demographics, energy, environmental issues, new economy (tech, biotech, venture capital, etc.), tourism and travel, lifestyle, outdoors, wildlife, Western literature, film and food.

The majority of our content is provided by our network of editors and writers but we do offer several ways to write with NewWest.Net:

All queries should be sent via email to editor@newwest.net.

If you are a published print book author or anthology editor who is interested in being a part of this award-winning publication, then welcome! Perceptive Travel is designed to plug a hole, to fill a niche, to serve an unserved need for quality writing aimed at independent travelers.

Paleo Recipe Book
If you want to eat truly healthy, lose body fat consistently, normalize your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, prevent cancer, and even boost your brain health and energy levels, you may have heard all over the news that the Paleo Diet has been found to be one of THE best methods of achieving all of these benefits compared to any other popular “fad” diets out there. Buy Your Paleo Recipe Book Here
