About

This contest is for the derelicts out there. We are looking for new and innovative approaches to the creative process. That means anything goes. We want your experiments: with language, with plot, with format, with medium. We’d love to read/see/hear your most exciting and daring projects, your collaborations, your darlings that don’t fit anywhere else, your basement-dwelling monsters revealed in all their grotesquery onto the medium of your choice. If you have been developing an interpretive dance that makes use of pesto, drone metal, and the classic aubade, WE WANT IT. If your words figuratively and/or literally fall off the page, GIVE IT TO US. All of it.

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for all submissions.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
