Kill the mood. Kill the moment. Kill your darlings. The theme of Issue #2 of The Carrot is: killing.
Whether that’s an exploration of the Death of the Author, or a good old-fashioned who-dunnit, we want your words, and other things, for The Carrot: New Writing Cumbria’s digital magazine of new writing.
Who can submit? Anyone from or living in Cumbria.
What can I submit? We’re looking for writing, as well as for other types of artwork: poetry, prose, crosswords, reviews, scripts, memoir, journalism, photos, pictures, video, music, animation… The list goes on. The only rule? It has to fit in some way with the theme.
When’s the deadline? Thursday 30th April 2015.
How do I submit my work? Email your work to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line ‘The Carrot issue 2’. Make sure you include a short writer’s bio (approx. 50 words).
How long should my work be? This is entirely up to you, but bear in mind that this is a magazine featuring a number of pieces of work, so we’re unlikely to include your whole novel.
Anything else I should know? We favour work that’s accompanied by an image, whether this is an illustration, artwork that sheds some light on your piece, or just a (quality) photo of you. This isn’t a prerequisite, and we won’t disregard any piece because it doesn’t have an image – it just makes the magazine look more visually exciting.
