Unpublished Writers: Submit For a Chance to be Published @TC — Brooklynian

Unpublished Writers: Submit For a Chance to be Published @TC

THE COMMOTION is accepting fiction and nonfiction up to 7,500 words and poetry up to 2,500 words for publication on our site. All authors must be previously unpublished in any nationally distributed publication, print or web. (Previous locally distributed publication, such as in university literary magazines or self-made 'zines or chapbooks, is allowed and even encouraged.) Additionally, we are looking for original art and photography.

Send all text as a .pdf attachment or in the body of an e-mail, and artwork as a .jpeg or high-res image, to submissions@thecommotion.com. Include the genre in the subject line and a short print-worthy bio in the body of the e-mail. We accept only electronic submissions. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis, and newly accepted pieces are published weekly. Comments on the website will be disabled for all outsourced published work.

We will respond to all submissions within two weeks. Please allow two weeks for a response before contacting us.

All work should be original. Simultaneous submissions are discouraged, but please notify us immediately if your work has been accepted elsewhere. If you choose to re-print your work elsewhere, we ask that THE COMMOTION be acknowledged upon reprint. Authors who are published on THE COMMOTION may be considered for subsequent publication. See the Terms & Conditions page for any questions regarding copyright.

For any other questions, please e-mail us at info@thecommotion.com.

Comments

  • There seems to be a contradiction between your Terms and Conditions and your statement above:

    The Terms and Conditions states: "Submissions... should not be published elsewhere, previously or later"

    Your statement above states: "If you choose to re-print your work elsewhere, we ask that THE COMMOTION be acknowledged upon reprint."

    Which controls? Is the contributor free to republish later, with appropriate attribution to THE COMMOTION?
  • Booklaw, thank you for pointing out this oversight. The submissions statement controls, and the Terms and Conditions now reflects this. The contributor is free to republish later with proper attribution to The Commotion.
  • Excellent That is the right way to go!
  • If you'd like to meet us and hear more about what we're planning, please stop by our launch party in Boerum Hill at Linger Café tomorrow (Mon 13, 8pm - 11:30pm).
