-Joanna Walsh, Fiction Editor

 

For a limited time, 3:AM is pleased to welcome submissions of fiction and prose for online publication.

The editors share a particular interest in writing that is linguistically and formally experimental. We value the bold, the considered and the deft.

The window for submissions begins today 9th February 2016 and will remain open for five weeks: the closing date for submissions is 15th March 2016 (GMT). Any work sent after midnight on this date will unfortunately not be considered.

Please find a list of guidelines as per the submissions process below. We look forward to reading your work.


Eley Williams, Fiction Co-Editor.

 

Aslan Gaisumov - Untitled (War), 1991

Guidelines:

    • Before sending a piece, please do read previous work that has appeared on 3:AM’s Fiction pages. Many recent and archived pieces are available here.
    • Individual submissions should be no longer than 3000 words. Although the editors have a strong interest in short pieces of fiction, standalone extracts from longer works will also be considered.
    • Pieces should be previously unpublished in English. This includes publication on personal blogs or forums. New translations are welcome and encouraged. In each case, however, the written permission of the original writer/publisher must also be provided.
    • Please submit no more than one piece of work per call for submissions.
    • Entry is – of course – free. All submissions must be made electronically.
    • Please email your writing as an attached .pdf, .doc or .docx file, with your name + title in the file’s name. For example, FIRSTNAME_SURNAME-SUBMISSION_TITLE.docx.
    • Along with your work, please include a short biography in the body of your email (not in any accompanying attachment). Include any links to work elsewhere that you would like published alongside your piece if it is accepted.
    • Simultaneous submissions are welcome, but please do inform the editor at the below address immediately should your piece be accepted for publication elsewhere.
    • 3:AM seeks diverse writing by a diversity of authors. Writers of colour, non-binary and queer writers are actively encouraged to submit.
    • If your work is accepted by the journal, the editors will – excitedly – get in touch via the email address supplied during submission. Due to the volume of submissions, I’m afraid that only those authors whose work is accepted for publication will be notified. We cannot supply individual responses or editorial feedback for work that is not accepted.
    • If a response has not been received by the end of May 2016, it is unlikely that 3:AM will be using your piece at this time.
    • There is unfortunately no payment offered alongside publication.
    • To submit, please email your work as directed to Eley Williams at the address listed here; simply click on her name.
