We've just finished the second issue of our zine 'Lovely Little Nutmegs', a collection of verses made up of football (soccer) commentary.

Dear Labrinthians,

We are writing to inform you that Issue #001 is now live on the site. It will remain live until August 5th, 2012. Then, it will remain in our archives, indefinitely. There is a link at the very bottom of this month's issue for you to download the .pdf version of Issue #001.

This also means that the reading period for "the in-between" and Issue #002 is now open. So, send us your work! Issue #002 will not be published until September 5th, but during the month of August we will publish and "feature" one poem every other day. So, by submitting during the reading period, you are consenting to be considered for both "the in-between" and "Issue #002". If you would only like to be considered for one of these things, please specify in your submission.

Thanks!

--The Editors

Aberration Labyrinth wants to read YOUR work!

http://aberrationlabyrinth.blogspot.com/p/submission-guidelines.html

 

Welcome To The Edge....

  • If you do not write about sailboats, you've come to the right place. If you're not boring, we love you. If you are an underground writer looking for a place where you can muck up the internet with your filthy mind, please come in.


Aberration Labyrinth is a baby as far as poetry rags go, but our claws are out and ready to strike the web with gusto. Our goal is to publish a small amount of AMAZING work (about 10 poems every month). But, we're not looking for just anything. This is a publication that plans to blur the lines of traditional poetry. Too many publications have a narrow definition of what poetry is or what it should be. We done. In fact, we treasure poetry that strays from the path. We want raw, evocative, emotional poetry. We love imagery. While we don't traditionally like rhymes, we are not opposed to them if they are done well. We love the free verse; we also love the aubade. The form is up to you.
 
We do not want:
  • Nature Poems
  • Religious Poems
  • Boring Poems
Instead, please send us:
  • Trash Poetry
  • Nerdy Poetry
  • Horror Poetry
For more on what we're looking for, please visit our submissions page.


At this time, we cannot offer compensation for our work (other than some potential web fame). We will, however, post a .pdf version of each issue, available for download. This blog is the beginning of our adventure and we hope to move towards a print edition in the future. We may even be able to pay... one day... in the future.


For now, please submit your work so we can make this happen. If you're not a writer, please check back often. We promise to give you something good.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: ASUANG by PAPER MONSTER PRESS

Asuang is an umbrella term for creatures that people our imagination. As blood suckers, they engender in us, a fear of the dark, of morbidity, of paleness, of incense. The fear that desires, the fear that suffocates, not just creatures but open spaces and high places. Fear of beings that when looked at mirrors or through other eyes, resemble perhaps, ourselves? Then here maybe, there be monsters?

Asuang then calls not just for darkness but for hallucinogen, psychedelia, kaleidoscopic narratives in whatever genre.

Specifically, we ask for:
1. 1-3 poems/ essays/ flash fiction (less than 500 words, English or Filipino)

2. 1-3 artworks in black/ white (in JPEG format)

3. 1-3 sound pieces in MP3 or Wav format

4. Critical essays about the small press/ underground publishing/ the culture of fanzines (also under 500 words)

5. Reviews of any issue of Paper Monster Press (and we’ve done 6 so far)
a. Pyrotechnic Poetry 1
b. Pyrotechnic Poetry 2
c. S/trip-hop
d. Dream(pop)
e. Queer Punk
f. SANDIGmaan

6. A theme for 1 print year
Ex. LOST IN TRANSLATION year
a. Issue 1: Atlantis (about forgetting/ resurfacing/ the abyss/ depths/ drowning/ swan diving)
b. Issue 2: Free Tibet (about culture clash/ Buddhism/ heights/ climbing/ pure dizziness of clouds)
c. Issue 3: Time-space Warp (about timezones/ cultural differences/ time and space/ reincarnation/ and the endless echoes we can never reach)
d. Issue 4: Labyrinths (canals/ road bridges/ the strange and devious routes we take to fantasy/ intoxication/ escape)

THE FINE PRINT
1. Send all submissions to papermonsterpress@yahoo.com with the heading: ATTN: ASUANG SUBMISSION
2. The deadline for submissions is on May 31, 2012.
3. Payment is one contributor copy and that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from seeing your name in print. ;)
VIVA SMALL PRESS!

Whoops, looks like the previous link disappeared...Here it is again, the .pdf version of our zine from Columbus, Ohio: Night Janitors One: Zombie Aeon.

Hi guys! Jess here, from Electric Windmill Press (we do poetry books & chapbooks and a literary & arts zine!) to let you know we have a New Year's promotion going at the moment where a donation of ANY amount gets you an e-book copy of Brian Le Lay's full-length poetry book, "Don't Bury Me in New Jersey" 40 poems, 98 pages, 6in x 9in. You can read the e-book on your computer, smartphone, ipod or ipad, e-reader, or even print out a hard copy.

Read excerpts of the book here: http://electricwindmillpress.com/dbminj.html

Donate any amount and get your e-book here: http://electricwindmillpress.com/donate.html Send us fifty cents, $1, $5. Anything goes!! We just want to share some great poems. If you enjoy honest, confessional, hard-hitting poetry, these poems are for you. There's also quite a bit of humor, and overall, I found the book to be incredibly thought-provoking and refreshing. It's hard for me to believe this is Brian's first book and I couldn't be prouder of what he's done here.

Also, just in case you are interested in the print edition of the book (6x9inches, perfect bound): Go HERE and use the coupon code ONEMORETHING at checkout for a total of $7.65+shipping until January 6th at 11:59pm PST.

The Fourth Annual Love Unlimited Film Festival & Art Exhibition is welcoming Poetry Zine Writers the chance to read an excerpt of their poetry zine in either Austin, Texas (2/26/2012 )or Los Angeles (4/16/2012).  Contact Love Unlimited through their contact page.  Poetry Submissions for the competitive portion of the event are closed so all readings would be accepted, at no fee, on a non-competitive basis.  There is no fee to apply to read an excerpt of zines and poetry zines.

Thanks.  Take care.

Hi guys! This is literary related but not quite a zine. Brian Le Lay (does the perzine Humility Wave & is also the editor of monthly literary-arts zine Electric Windmill) has finished and released his first full-length book of poetry! 98 pages, 40 poems. Check it out here: http://electricwindmillpress.com/dbminj.html -- There you will find excerpts and links to purchase the print book and e-book. Until 12/6, there's free ground shipping with the code SLEIGHRIDES for the print version.

Want stuff that's either free or more zine-related instead? Brian contributes every month to Electric Windmill, so have at it! =) If you enjoy literary stuff, you would enjoy the 'zine. We usually offer poems, stories, articles, essays, along with visual art as well from contributors who are from all over! 

http://electricwindmillpress.com/3.html

http://electricwindmillpress.com/2.html

http://electricwindmillpress.com/1.html

View 'em for free online as a PDF, or order 'em for cheap!

One more thing... If you are seeking publication for your own work, Electric Windmill accepts submissions on a rolling basis. Find out more here: http://electricwindmillpress.com/faq.html

Electric Windmill is an independent book publisher and monthly literary-arts publication. We've nothing to do with windmills or electricity in a literal sense, but we do hope to generate a self-empowering community where artists and thinkers of different, but equally important mediums and ideologies can co-exist.  

This isn't about the avant-garde, or the underground, or promoting one specific type of literary expression. People are more important than art. This is about people. Their stories. Their suffering. Their ideas about the world.
