ok this has been a long time coming !! boost house is accepting submisions !! right now we’re mainly looking for stuff for our anthology (The YOLO Pages), and for our ongoing internet presence (tumblr / instagram / twitter / facebook). however, many of the contributors we find from these submissions will likely be people who we return to, again and again, soliciting more material, possibly publishing full books by them, etc… so if you’re interested in being a boost house author/artist, please send us some stuff now!!
our submission guidelines:
no strict rules about genre/artform: mainelyyy we want short-form creative writing, but we’re not limited to “poetry” per se—we want tweets and visual pieces, activist calls-to-action, etc. no format is off-limits on principle. even sound recordings and video can be shared thru our internet presence.
we accept previously published stuff: we’d like to think our audience is diferent from other publishers, so your work will be new to our followers anyway. we aim to reach many non-poets, and people who aren’t familiar with much of the small-press lit world. and so:
we want writing that could be a gateway for new poetry readers: we’re interested in “accessible” writing—but mainly “accessible” by internet standards. often that means short or visualy interesting
we invite you to submit a bunch of material: include a bunch of poems, attach pdf’s of your (e-)books, a link to your twitter, a link to the “poetry” tag on your blog, etc. include it all in one email, so we can freely choose our favorite stuff to publish from it.
call our attention to your stuff which most fits our mission: we’re most interested in writing that has an activist spirit of critiquing oppressive systems or calling others to action; and/or writing that has a “positive” message of hope, appreciation for existence, or spreading kindness. if possible, call our attention to your pieces which especialy have this kind of orientation; we’re most likely to publish those.
submit any time before february 17th. send it all to email@example.com. our plan is to select and notify all our contributors by the end of february. if you did’t get notified by march 1st, we probably didnt choose you for this round of submissions, im sorry :( there wil be more in the future !!!!!
THANK YOU in advance to everybody who submits :)Feb 03 2014 / 274 notes
