SUBMIT!

Please contemplate our MANIFESTO before sending your work, then CLICK HERE to visit our submittable page.

Send us your stories, poems, and essays, your work pulsing with beats, haunted by melodies. We pay $200 for short stories and essays, and $75 for poems and flash fiction and non-fiction. You can submit multiple works in a single or in multiple genres, but please use your best judgment about sending us the best work you have that is appropriate to our music-driven mission. We also accept multiple submissions. Please inform us if work we are considering has been accepted elsewhere.

PLEASE NOTE: We are looking for written work to evaluate on the page. We are not seeking recordings, songs, or readings with musical accompaniment. Work will be considered for publication as an audio recording after we have accepted it for print.

Because we want to encourage work that relates to music in subtle, oblique, and surprising ways, we ask you to include a brief artist’s statement illuminating your work’s relationship to specific musical forms and artifacts. You are welcome to include an author bio as part of your artist’s statement, and we would also love to hear how you heard about us.

If you have questions, you can get in touch with John Edgar at opossum.jedgar@gmail.com and with Jon Ross at opossum.jonross@gmail.com.
