blackbird

South Broadway Ghost Society has an open call for submissions to its first-ever print journal, out this October in celebration of our one year anniversary.

The print edition of South Broadway Ghost Society will be distributed firstly in local bookstores and metaphysical stores in Denver, Colorado and on the Front Range. It will also be available online, and we hope in time that it will be largely distributed across the United States and internationally.

We are looking for words and images to fill the pages of this journal.

LGBTQIA+ and people of color are encouraged to submit.

Words

We are looking for words in most any short form:
poetry, short fiction, non-fiction, essay, recipes, spells, experimental pieces, anything

For an idea of what words we are looking for, please review the content that South Broadway Ghost Society has posted online over the last several months.

We will be selecting approximately ten pieces of writing to be included in the first print edition of the journal.

Please submit no more than three pieces of writing as a .doc if you’re able to.

You can submit both pieces of writing and pieces of visual art, or mixed media of both, if you wish to.

If selected, writers and artists will receive $10 and a free contributor’s copy of the journal to be mailed, or picked up at a Denver release party. The funds to support this have been raised through our GoFundMe, which is still active.

Please submit words as “GHOST ONE – WORDS – <YOUR NAME>” to submissions@soboghoso.org.

Submissions are open March 1st through June 31st of 2019.

All inquiries will be responded to no later than October 1st of 2019.

In tandem with this call for submissions, South Broadway Ghost Society is running a contest seeking pieces on the subject of “The Fool” with a chance to be the first piece featured in the print journal and a $100 prize. You can find details for that here.
