Bare Fiction Magazine is currently accepting submissions of short plays for its June 2014 issue.
What they’re looking for: In their own words:
“We want our readers to discover genre-defying boldness from exciting writers in poetry, fiction and plays, literary review, interviews and commentary. To that end, we need prose, poetry and play texts that instantly grab our minds and take us on extraordinary literary journeys. If your work is competently written but doesn’t have the kind of depth that makes the readers work just that little bit harder, then it’s probably not for us. We want you to make peoples eyes open wider and their minds race with excitement as they feast on your words.”
What to submit: Submissions for short plays or self contained play extracts should be limited to approximately 10 pages of text. Please give a full synopsis in your covering letter and, if applicable, include details of any performances of the text you have received or productions planned.
Please do not send more than one active submission at a time. We do not accept translations or work that have been previously published in print or online. Only original unpublished work submitted by the author will be considered. No submissions by publishers, presses or agents please.
How to apply: Applications can be made via their website.
Ensure that your name does not appear on the uploaded documents. The uploaded file/s will be electronically tagged to the details of the writer, but they operate a blind submission policy.
What you get: Contributors will receive a copy of the magazine issue in which their submission is printed and can also purchase extra copies at a substantially reduced rate if they wish.
Deadline: 3 May 2014
