Synaesthesia Magazine call for submissions
First off, take a few minutes to read through some of their back issues. They’re free to view, and this is by far the easiest way to find out whether they might enjoy your writing. If you don’t like reading on screen, you can always buy a copy!
As well as following the specific guidelines below, they 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 any 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. They enjoy slipstream in particular when it comes to fiction, but submissions of original and unpublished work in any genre will be very welcome. The only essential is that your story should make them want to read on.
They will consider up to three previously unpublished poems or translations.
They 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.
