Our sixth zine will be a collection of micro-fiction of no more than 100 words. Please read the guidelines before submitting your work because our approach to processing submissions has changed since our last issue.
What and how to submit
- The theme is ‘100 words, 100 years from now’. Please create pieces on any subject such as climate, politics, technology, consumersim, social media, life, love or death, etc. but they must somehow be set in 2119.
- Email all submissions to: EllipsisZineSubs@gmail.com and format the subject line of your email with the title of your work. For example: 2119 – My Story Title.
- Please do not use the number ‘2119’ within your submission or title.
- Paste all submissions into the body of an email. Please don’t include any attachments.
- The word count should not exceed 100, excluding the title.
- A maximum of three submissions per author.
- We may ask for, or suggest minor edits/changes to your piece before publication.
- Simultaneous submissions are fine but please let us know if you are accepted elsewhere as soon as possible.
- All submissions must be currently unpublished online or in print. Pieces previously published on your personal blog or website are okay to submit, as are reprints from lit magazines that have folded or closed. Please highlight this in your submission.
- No racism, sexism, homophobia or religious hatred. Sex is acceptable if it is relevant to the piece.
- Submissions close midnight, 12th September 2019
- Author list published, 3rd October 2019
- Zine released, 24th October 2019
