We’re in the final stages of completing our new INDENT website and beginning editorial meetings this month. We are looking forward to a launch in December and I am grateful for your patience in the delay in coming to press this year. We could use a few more submissions in both poetry and fiction, or anything that traverses the two, and so I am pleased to let you know about a new submissions window:
OCT 9th – NOV 9th
Please send up to six poems (in one file, one poem per page) or prose from 500words – 3000 words.
PDF, DOC, DOX, or RTF please. No links to dropboxes, clouds or similar, if you don’t mind.
Send poetry to L[DOT]S[DOT]MANSELL[AT]STAFFS.AC.UK
Send fiction to P[DOT]E[DOT]HOUGHTON[AT]STAFFS.AC.UK
Please note the new email addresses
Manuscripts must be double spaced, page-numbered and edited to a professional standard.
We are looking for work that is evocative and provocative: bold, original, innovative writing, fresh as an electric shock: short stories, poems, cultural reviews and occasional essays. The work needs to be wholly contemporary and we want writing that is poetic and artistic as opposed to commercially-minded: fiction with an arresting writing style, strength of characterisation, sharp visualisation, unusual settings, storylines and concepts. For poetry we want to see a rich use of language and innovatory typographical presentation is welcome.
