Superstition Review is just getting started again for the new semester. This term we have 25 dedicated interns, which means expanded departments and teams, more editing staff, and, we hope, a higher submission pool to keep them all busy!
That’s right: it’s submission season for the journal!
Now through the end of October is the time when SR opens its inboxes to reading over manuscripts and perusing works of art in preparation for the Fall 2009 issue, which launches the week of November 24th.
We’re looking for fresh material in all four of our fields: art, fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. If you’re considering submitting something to SR, please read the submission page and check out our guidelines before you submit. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
No previously published works are accepted. Simultaneous submissions are permitted, but please alert Superstition Review to a piece’s potential publication elsewhere.
All submissions must be done electronically. No paper submissions will be considered for publication.
Superstition Review acquires one-time rights. All rights subsequently revert to author.
If you believe you have something that follows those guidelines and are interested in seeing it published in the fourth issue of SR, head on over to our submission page for full details and information about sending us your work!
Even though the deadline for the potential authors of Superstition Review has already passed, the deadlines are only just beginning for us here at the magazine.
After receiving hundreds of submissions, we need to have all of the final selections for our Inaugural issue decided by March 24th at the latest. The prospect is overwhelming to say the least, especially with all of the amazingly creative and high-quality work that we have received.
We here at Superstition Review can’t thank everyone who submitted their work enough; sending in your work to a publication takes a lot of courage, and we know that for many of you, your writing is a small part of yourself. But we can’t reinforce enough that even if your piece is not published in Superstition Review, we are honored that you shared it with us.
So here’s to a wonderful start of a busy week, and to a wonderful cast of authors, editors, and a wellspring of incredible writing for all!
