Under 25? Then this one's for you. Myths of the Near Future - 'Money' - Deadline: Fri 30 May 2014

The NAWE Young Writers' Hub journal of new writing by the under 25's is calling for submissions on the theme of  'Money'

"Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing" Oscar Wilde famously quipped.

Novels like Cosmopolis, Capital, Money have all dealt with the idea of 'money' in Literature. In a world increasingly dominated by booms and busts, rises and falls, increased extremes of wealth and inequality, what is the poetry of Money? What is the future of Money? Who or what are its voices?

This issue, we're looking for submissions of poetry, fiction, non-fiction and reviews that address the idea of 'Money'. The good and the bad. The shopping and the excess, the poverty and the division. We want challenging, new writing about an underlying force that makes the world go round.

You don't have to write on the theme, we accept general submissions too. But please -

Send up to six poems, 5000 words of fiction, or 1000 words of nonfiction as an MS Word document along with a brief a brief bio of your writing life and any links to websites, blogs, social media, audio or video you might have floating around to Wes Brown with MYTHS: MONEY in the title of the email.

Myths of the Neat Future is currently an ebook journal and will eventually be collected into an annual print compendium encompasses each year's issues. We are supported by the NAWE Young Writers' Hub and publish young writers that deserve to be read
