We are looking for poetry, short fiction, and non-fiction in line with our submission guidelines on the theme of Identity and Truth.
We wanted something that would allow contributors to explore the myriad of experiences of our current moment. Investigate yourselves and our world. Confront the contradiction of truths we've been told. Dig deep and don't hold back.
Whatever these mean to you, however you experience them, whoever you are: We want to hear from you.
Submissions open 16 October and close 14 December 2020, 23:59 GMT.
Square Wheel Press currently only accepts submissions during set submission windows, announced alongside each new edition's theme.
POETRY: You may send up to five poems—no more than seven pages—in a single document, single-spaced. Each poem should begin on a new page, which should be numbered.
PROSE: One piece of either fiction or creative non-fiction, up to 3,000 words, double-spaced.
FORMATTING: Please number your pages and ensure that the title(s), word/line count and author name are clearly displayed in the document.
SIMULTANEOUS SUBMISSIONS: 100% acceptable, but please be sure to let us know if any of your pieces are accepted elsewhere. (To withdraw a piece from consideration, just shoot us an email at squarewheelpress [at] gmail.com)
When you are ready to submit, send your work in a .doc or .docx file & a short author bio of up to 50 words to SquareWheelPress [at] Gmail.Com, with the subject line: “SUBMISSION: IDENTITY & TRUTH”.
All submissions are initially read through a blind process in an attempt to reduce bias.
While we are, unfortunately, not a paying market at this time, we do nominate for industry awards, such as Best of Net and the Pushcart Prize.
