Abandon Journal: “Abandon Earth” Issue
Deadline September 30 (must be received by this date). Online lit mag Abandon Journal seeks submissions of unpublished poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, artwork, comics, book reviews, interviews, and craft essays for Issue #5, "Abandon Earth". Interpret the theme however you wish. Contributors receive $15. See website for length limits and Submittable form. Editors say, "We want to showcase writing and artwork that has been created with abandon. That term is free to be interpreted liberally, but ideally it is the kind of work that takes risks, created in a space wherein the artist doesn't care what anyone else thinks or what everyone else is doing. This means that we're open to so-called 'genre fiction,' from mystery to sci-fi to romance to fantasy to horror to whatever strikes your fancy. As long as the writing is powerful and abandons the preconceived notions of what is expected, we want to read it."
