Eclectic literary journal THEMA is open for its next themed issue, asking writers to use the peculiar prompt, “Is There a Word for That?” as a starting point and to jumpstart their imagination.
Virginia Howard, Editor, welcomes submissions of short stories, poetry, and artwork related to the theme. The theme must add significance to the plot but does not need to be the central focus of the work.
Prose length: under 20 double-spaced pages. Short pieces average under 1K words.
Payment: up to $25/story; $10/poem; $25 for coverart; and $10 for interior art. Writers retain full copyright after publication.
Submissions close March 1, 2017. Submit here: themaliterarysociety.com/submissions.html
