SUBMISSIONS

 Chronopolis, an online journal of experimental prose and poetry, will be accepting submissions for its debut edition (March 2014) through January 31. Chronopolis was created in the spirit of its progenitors, from the avant-garde publications Documents, VVV, and Minotaure to contemporary literary magazines such as > kill author. Named after Piotr Kamler’s seminal surrealist 1982 film, it seeks to promote experimental and avant-garde poetry, fiction and non-fiction. Prose should fall under 3000 words, while poems should be no more than 40 lines.
Submissions page: http://www.chronopolismag.com/submissions/

Mad Rush’s 3rd website, but same quality poems. This was the first print magazine to have picked up my writing, and I was stoked. It’s cool to see how they’ve evolved since their first edition, and built up to the zine they are today.

HOT OFF THE PRESS

 What Good’s a View of the Charles: poems of tribute, volume two published by, ALL CAPS Publishing, by Mignon Ariel King. [$9.00
@  Amazon ]
Travel along the Charles River by “T” or by foot with a Beantown-born woman writer, a bookworm and hard Rock fan who has common sense but loves a good time. What happens when a traditionally-raised New England scholar lets her nonconformist self-loving Black woman night owl spirit be inspired by the gruff-voiced poetry of Charles Bukowski? Pick up volume two of her autobiographical poetry trilogy to find out. But don’t let your teenage daughter read it – unless you’re trying to raise a troublemaker!
