Call for Submissions
Dwart’s Issue No. 3
deadline: 2nd March 2017
The theme for Dwart’s third issue is Uprooting. We are looking for original and compelling pieces that touch on this through such subthemes as death, spiritual disconnection, physical distancing, cultural alienation, memory loss – just anything that reminds us of a flower being pulled out of the earth. We want a portrayal of the tragedies and comedies of losing one’s root. Pieces that break stereotypes and are told with extra-ordinary confidence will appeal to us more.
- Send your works electronically through firstname.lastname@example.org
- We have interest only in works that have not been published elsewhere.
- Every submission must be accompanied by the writer’s/artist’s/photographer’s short bio. This should be in the same document as the piece.
- Please write the category you are submitting to in the Subject line of the email.

FICTION: Submissions in this category must not be more than 3,000 words long. Every submission is expected to be compelling enough to pin one down with startling sentences and fluttery story lines.
