I’m currently Guest Editor over at the A3 Review
, the literary magazine that acts like a map, from the people who bring you Writing Maps
Each month there’s a writing contest and May’s theme is: Five Senses.
Smell, taste, touch, sound, vision. DEADLINE: 28 May 2016! Entries only accepted via Submittable
What would it be like to lose one, or two, or all the senses. Or maybe have a sense greatly enhanced. Is there a sixth sense? Think about relationships between the senses, about situations like a meal or a kiss or a dangerous meeting where senses are heightened. Maybe a character is forced to undergo sensory deprivation. Think how the senses can trigger evocative memories. Or think about animals and how differently they perceive the world through their senses.
The A3 Review welcome short stories, flash fiction, comics, graphic stories, a snippet of memoir, photographs, illustrations, and any combination of the above. The only restriction is a word-limit of 150 and images should fit well into an A6 panel.
For more inspiration, visit A3 Review on Twitter. Please make sure to view full guidelines here.
Entry fee is $5 (approx £3) per submission. Multiple submissions welcome.
All genres welcome. All writers and artists welcome. Welcome is the key word here…
The two winning entries will be published in Issue #5 of The A3 Review, the Writing Maps Journal. Winners will also receive Writing Maps and other goodies.
The three overall winners of the March till August contests will receive cash prizes of £150 for 1st; £75 for 2nd; and £50 for 3rd.
So, now I’ve told you, the rest is up to you. I look forward to reading your entries.
