The Treacle Well (Deadline 26th of July 2013)
The Treacle Well are now looking for submissions to their 2nd edition. This time the theme is Wastelands.
They are looking for writing that is unexpected and which looks at the world in a slightly different way. We accept prose, poetry and script extracts. Please follow the guidelines below:
- Submissions should be no more than 2000 words.
- We’re happy to accept multiple submissions but please don’t send us more than three stories/poems/scripts at a time. Please also be aware that if you send us more than one submission it is unlikely that we will choose to publish more than one of them. This is so that we can promote as many different writers as possible.
- We’re after work that is currently unpublished. So please don’t send us anything that has been published previously elsewhere.
- Please send your work in a word document or pdf file and remember to give your work a title. Please don’t use the theme as the title for your piece (ie. Don’t simply call it ‘Wastelands’). This is to save us confusion, but also because it makes your work stand out more.
Send your submissions to email@example.com
