Market News: Jabberwocky 5 is Now Open for Business [Dec. 1st, 2009|10:09 am]

Co-edited by Erzebet YellowBoy & Sean Wallace
Published by Prime Books.

Coming July 2010.

The elements and bedrock of Jabberwocky can be largely described as the -ical approach: lyrical, whimsical, mythical, in all its forms, particularly short fiction, poetry, and illustrative. There are no boundaries, no restrictions, no genres. If you love the art of the written word, its structure, its flow, its language, we suspect you'll love Jabberwocky.

Jabberwocky is now open for submissions . Our reading period will remain open until the collection is full. Our response time is 2 weeks.

No reprints or simultaneous submissions. Multiple submissions (within reason) are encouraged. Poetry can be any length, but for fiction the count must not exceed 4000 words. This is firm. We are not concerned with genre, but we do look for elements of the fantastic, the mythic and the surreal.

Payment: $.01 per word for fiction, $5.00 per poem. Payable on publication.

Rights: Download a copy of our contract here.

Submissions, queries or complaints should be sent to jabberwocky.magazine[at]gmail.com.

In the contract, I hope in clause five, that's meant to be $0.003 PER WORD for prose, not just $0.003...

Either, though formatting is more likely to be retained in an attachment.

I sent as plain text, because in my experience attachments are iffy beasts when one is using OpenOffice :)
