CRATE: Still Taking Submissions

Filed under: General — Neil Aitken @ 1:24 pm

(UPDATED: Theme broadened, Submission deadline moved to Dec 31)

Time to put on my editor cap and do a little promoting…

We’re still seeking submissions for the Spring 2006 issue of CRATE. Open reading period ends Dec 31, so please mail us something before then. Our theme for this issue is “Beyond Pandora’s Box.”

What do we want? Poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, one-act plays, anything that surprises and delights. We want to be impressed — wowed by your submission. With this issue’s theme, we’d like to see some wild and creative takes on the darker elements of our world.
