SUBMISSIONS

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.

Guidelines for Submission

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
Happy 2013, I hope that all your poetry hopes and wishes will be come to pass.
We are looking for 3 or 4 more people to serve on our welcoming committee and program book table for Visual Inverse on Saturday Jan 26, please let me know as soon as possible. We would also accept some food donations for the reception contact Rene Schwiesow please.
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.  Irene Koronas Jan 11 and Rene Schwiesow Jan 25 are the poets scheduled to be featured. The can all be seen by going www.masspoetry.org
