Past Calls for Submission

For our inaugural issue we are seeking submissions of poetry (up to 3 poems per writer) as well as short fiction, creative nonfiction, and memoir of up to 2,500 words on the theme of ‘Water.’ Shorter works such as flash fiction are also welcome, as are works that challenge genre boundaries.

Water. Beaches. Coastlines. Island archipelagos. La Niña. Climate change. Floods. Thirst.

We leave the interpretation of the theme up to you!

Submissions are open to all, but we particularly welcome work from South Australian and regional writers, creative writing students, First Nations and POC writers, the LGBTQI+ community, and writers with a disability.

Please send submissions in a Word document using a plain size 12 font and 1.5 or double line spacing to by the 30th of June 2021. Please also include a 50 word biographical statement. Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but please notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.

Unfortunately, we are not able to pay contributors at this time.

We look forward to reading your writing!
