Submissions Reopened and Celebrated
Letter from the Editor.
Story Bleed Magazine is once again accepting submissions!
After a year of submissions on hold due to a backlog in the hundreds, we are proud to announce that we have reopened submissions and are ready to celebrate with you.
Join the Story Bleed Editors this Thursday for a one hour open twitter chat about the craft of writing.
What: Writing indulgence in the company of friends, writers, and editors
Where: Twitter #storied (click the hashtag and join in or simply follow along)
When: Thursday, March 24, 2011, at 9pm ET/ 8CT/ 6PT
Reopening submissions is worth celebrating. Not only does it breathe new life into our conversation, once again enlivening the push and pull of living art, but we are also broadening our embrace. Story Bleed Magazine now accepts original submissions both previously published and unpublished in the following areas:
- nonfiction (essays, memoirs)
- fiction (short pieces, please)
Submit your work to Story Bleed through our revamped submissions manager today.
Timeless. Published. Unpublished. Singular. Bold.
As ever, we are interested in pieces that are timeless. New for us, however, is the acceptance of original, previously unpublished pieces.
Since our first incarnation years ago, we have received countless requests to accept previously unpublished work. As one of our missions is to encourage writers and artists to first publish within their own platforms before farming out their efforts to other venues, we have hesitated to publish unpublished work. You and your audience deserve that priority attention. However, over time we have realized that some work does not fit in the author’s existing platform or the author does not have his own venue. We are happy to evolve and excited to see where your bold experiments move us.
Story Bleed publishes both online and in print. You will see in our new submission guidelines that one of the responsibilities of our Editors is to identify in which venue your work would be best featured. All submissions are therefore considered for both our Online and Print editions. Which, frankly, has us pretty damn excited.
Celebrate. Write. Indulge.
Our first twitter chat with the Story Bleed Editors was a resounding success in terms of both turnout and content. In case you missed it or simply want to revisit some of your favorite moments, we have archived select tweets from the one hour event at our #storied page .
Be sure to follow us on twitter @StoryBleed and join us this Thursday at 9pm ET for our second #storied event, celebrating our reopening submissions! Prepare to discover inspiration and explore the place between us where stories blur the lines.Megan Jordan | March 21st, 2011 | Category: Featured 2, Letter from the Editor, Monday 1, Storied Editor Chats | 14 comments
