Zeugma Literary Journal

Zeugma Literary Journal is currently accepting submissions for our August issue.

We’re looking to fill our pages with quality writing from out of left field.

We accept:

• Original Fiction, Poetry, and Erotica
• Non-fiction, Personal Essays
• Reviews of the Printed and Electronic Word
• Comics, Line Drawings and Photography

We value alternative perspectives, good stories, insightful commentary and command of the English language. No academic essays, no political tracts, no bad philosophy. Please note: this doesn’t mean we’re opposed to work with an academic or philosophical bent. It just means we don’t
want to read the first chapter of your thesis. We’re looking for work that appeals to a broad yet literate audience, so if you can rock philosophy or any -ology in a way that will interest people without graduate degrees, we’d love to see it.

Unpublished and published contributors are equally welcome.

Contributors are paid with a small honorarium and two copies of the issue in which their work is printed.

DEADLINE: June 30, 2006.

Submissions and queries to Tomasz Mrozewski and Meghan Beresford at: zeugmamag@gmail.com

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:

Please send your submission with “Submission” and your name in the header.

Word Limit: 3000 words, though serial publication may be considered for longer works.

Submissions Limit: We ask contributors to respect a limit of five submissions per quarterly submission period.

Please notify us in advance of any prior publications of the work in any form. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but we’d like to know if someone snaps up your work before we do.

We prefer to receive our submissions as Word attachments (Word ‘97 or higher) but failing that, you can always cut and paste your submission into the body of your email. We’ll figure it out either way. Please be aware, however, that any special formatting may be lost if you opt to
cut-and-paste.

Plain-type, black 12-point font is appreciated. Curlicues and hot pink type are hard on our eyes, and if we can’t read it, we can’t print it.

Word count and bio are appreciated, though not mandatory.
