Get in the Mix: Our submissions period for the Spring 2013 issue has closed. We will begin taking submissions for our Fall 2013 issue on July 1, so check back with us then. Our descriptions below will tell you a bit about the sort of work we’re looking for, though we’re open to suggestion. If you’ve got something that you think will fit in the mix, submit via our submissions manager. We look forward to seeing your work!
Prose- about 1000 words
Poetry – up to 5 poems
Visual art – up to 5 images in PDF or JPEG
Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please let us know if we’ve held on to your work too long or if you end up getting a gig with someone else before we make a commitment to you. It’s the right thing to do. We’ll do our best to get back to you about your submission within two or three months.
Please don’t send us previously published work. We want your new stuff, your wallflowers, your wonderful stuff no one else has yet recognized as wonderful.
Please include a very brief bio and full contact information in your cover letter. Tell us a little bit about how you think your piece reflects an interest in collaboration, and/or tell us something about the collaborative process that went into making the piece.
Are you a couple? You don’t have to hold hands or wear each other’s high school letter jackets to participate in couples’ skate. Any two people who roll together are a couple. Sisters, brothers, brothers from other mothers, roommates, heterolifemates, soul mates, best-friends-forever, domestic partners, life partners, dance partners, lovers, or old fashioned married couples are welcome. Create something together, or tell us what it’s like being together. If you’ve done something stupid together (partners in crime), we DEFINITELY need to know.
Chain stories, chain poems, chain letters (not the ones that tell us that we’ll have bad luck for all eternity if we do not forward this to twenty-five friends), dialogues, trialogues, chaotic conversations, sequels, prequels, artistic connect-the-dots, sampling, photo stories, causes, effects and aftereffects.
Ekphrastics, Appreciations, Riffs, Remixes, Translations, etc.
Do you make art in response to art? Are you a polyglot? Show us!
Analysis of collaborative works and processes, informed (but not burdened) by research.
Original recipes for drinks, eatables, poisons, potions, real or imagined.
Hate group work? It hates you back. Give it hell here.
This is Awkward
Got something that’s sort of collaborative but doesn’t fit into any of our control-freak categories? Okay, we’ll take a look, just because we’re curious.
