Briarpatch Magazine’s 4th annual creative writing contest is here. Briarpatch is seeking fresh, creative writing that brings to life issues of political, social, and environmental justice. They’re looking for writing from the edges – from new writers who have something important to say, or from longtime writers who can show us a new way of seeing things. They’re looking for bold and courageous writing that pushes the boundaries between fact and fiction, journalism and prose, deconstructing tough issues in inventive ways. Non-fiction submissions should not exceed 2000 words and poems should not exceed two pages. More info here.
text magazine is looking for submissions of poetry/flash fiction/art/photography/tweets/facebook statuses, etc. Short, sharp, observant poetry and artwork, as well as unconventional forms of poetry (social media, found poetry, etc)are welcome. Full guidelines here.
