GIMME FICTION: Chicago Reader, Bushwick Review #2

In Writer's Front on September 26, 2010 at 3:27 pm

Though it’s not nearly NaNoWriMo yet, start warming up, kids: Chicago Reader‘s annual “Pure Fiction” issue is slated for December, and they’ve already begun accepting submissions.

We’ll be considering submissions from now until November 3. Please send them to We prefer text pasted into e-mail rather than attachments. It’s hard to find room these days for pieces over 10,000 words, but to a degree we’re flexible on length. We pay for those we publish.

You can find more info on submitting here, and check out their decade-old archive as well.

Also, some news from the illustrious zinester Kristen Felicetti–deadline for submissions is coming up next weekend for the second issue of the raddest New York zine ever, The Bushwick Review (I lived in Bushwick, I’m biased). That means it’s only a matter of time before some of us get to chain smoke while reading and viewing each others’ work in the dusty corners of our apartments.

Chicagoans may still be able to find a copy of the zine’s first issue at Quimby’s Bookstore, otherwise you can purchase a copy online by clicking here. NYC distros: St. Mark’s Bookshop, Bluestockings, Desert Island Comics, Academy Records, and Spoonbill & Sugartown.
