Submit to Altered Scale

Submission Policy: For the blog associated with this journal, thealteredscale.blogspot.com, submissions are always open. I am looking for poetry, flash fiction, nonfiction, and reviews; as well as visual, audio, musical, and multimedia pieces. Submissions for AlteredScale.com 3 will open in November. Before submitting, please fully read, view, and listen to both AlteredScale.com 1 and AlteredScale.com 2. Send material via email with attachments. Include a biography. With videos, I generally use an embedded link to YouTube or Vimeo. Ideally, sound files are Soundcloud and photos are either jpg, flickr or contain some way to embed html. If this confuses you, don’t worry; send your stuff. If I like it, we will make a way for it to work.

Submit to Extract(s)

Extract(s) is looking for submissions for our Poems, Stories, and Haiku features, as well as excerpts from upcoming novels, memoirs, and poetry and story collections. We will take submissions via our online submission manager only. We are not yet accepting self-published work.
If you are interested in having “In Place” feature your writing program/group, please send a formal query to us here.
Poetry
Please submit up to five (5) poems. We are looking for smart, fresh,well-crafted pieces to consider. If you took a look through our personal poetry collection you would find writers who challenge us, who move us, and who we cannot help but share with others. Do you think you have a poem that will take off the top of our head? Submit now! Our submission period is always open, but please wait at least six months before sending another.
Prose
Please submit one short story (fiction or non-fiction) of no more than 1,000 words. We are looking for fresh, well-crafted stories that make us cry and laugh and think. We want to be moved in some fundamental way in as few words as possible. Our readers should carry your characters with them as they go about the rest of their day—or longer. Our submission period is always open, but please wait at least six months before sending another.
Haiku
Please submit up to three pieces of original artwork in any medium with an original haiku for each. The haiku need not be an explanation of the image, merely a companion to it. As Japanese and English syllables are not the same, do not worry about meeting the “5/7/5″ syllable count. Instead, think of the lines as “short/long/short.”
Excerpts
Please submit no more than 1,000 words of prose and three poems from a book that has been published in the past three months or will be published in the coming weeks/months/year. We will accept excerpts from publishers and writers, but are not yet accepting self-published work.
BITS AND PIECES
I am pleased to announce that five poems and pieces of visual art from last year Visual Inverse have been selected by MassPoetryFestival as the poem of the week. Regie O Gibson will appear the week beginning Nov 30, Charles Harper Dec 14, Lawrence Kessanich Dec 28, Irene Koronas Jan 11 and Rene Schwiesow Jan 25. They can all be seen by going to www.masspoetry.org
Plymouth resident, Elizabeth Hanson, a regular at PTAOW as well as responsible for our monthly music feature has a poem in Ibbetson Street #32.
Circle Saturday January 26 on your calendar, that will be the date of our public reading for this year’s Visual Inverse.
Got some spare time on a Friday afternoon, then why not join Renee Summers at the Talking Information Center, in Marshfield [at WATD radio station] and tape a session of poetry reading, either your own or some of your favorite poems.  The program is broadcasted for the ‘visual impaired’ so why not spread your poetry among those who on their own can not easily access it. Renee can be reached at reneesummers@umn.edu or call her at 781-545-3197.
