Submit! The Long and the Short of It

Harpur Palate, the lit journal out of SUNY Bighamton, is now accepting submissions for their Summer 2009 themed issue. Its focus is the short-short - perfect for those who have been inspired by the Dime Stories project and Second Sundays Open Mic in Laguna.

Deadline for submissions: April 15th.

Here's what they say:

Starting in January 2009 we will be seeking submissions of poetry, fiction, & creative non-fiction for our next themed issue, The Long and Short of It, featuring short prose (1000 words or less) and long poems (3 pages or longer).

Please send 1-3 stories or 1 poem, and mark your submission "themed issue."

We're trying to shake up the genres a little bit and publish some pieces a "normal" journal might not accept, so send us what you got and please tell your friends.

The issue is scheduled for release in Summer 2009.

Mail a copy of your manuscript with cover letter and (very important) a business-sized self-addressed stamped envelope (#10 SASE) for our response. Manuscripts without SASEs will be discarded unread. Copies of manuscripts will NOT be returned. If submitting both fiction and poetry, please use separate envelopes.

Simultaneous submissions are acceptable as long as you let us know in your cover letter that you are simultaneously submitting; also, if your work is accepted elsewhere, please let us know immediately.

Send submissions to the appropriate editor (Attention: Poetry Editors or Prose Editors) at:

Harpur Palate
English Department
Binghamton University
PO Box 6000
Binghamton, NY 13902-6000

They DO NOT ACCEPT email submissions.
