Dear Colleagues (and with the submission of the moderator):
On behalf of International Authors I am happy to announce a second Call for Submissions for Emanations IV, an annual international anthology of fiction, poetry and essays.
Reflecting the "experimental" nature of the project, the language used in the Call is somewhat hyperbolic--and this is in order to encourage submissions that are truly innovative. Thus far we have been successful in attracting very high quality material from writers, artists, academics and professionals from around the world.
I should remark that this forum has played a key role in the formation of the Board of Editors, as well as in establishing contacts with a number of outstanding writers and artists. With this in mind, allow me to tender our thanks to the Milton community.

Call for Submissions: Emanations IV
International Authors and the editors of Emanations are happy to announce a Call for Submissions:
Emanations is an anthology series featuring fiction, poetry,
essays, manifestos and reviews. The emphasis is on alternative narrative
structures, new epistemologies, peculiar settings, esoteric themes,
sharp breaks from reality, ecstatic revelations, and vivid and abundant
The editors are interested in recognizable genres—science fiction,
fantasy, horror, mystery, local color, romance, realism, surrealism,
postmodernism--but the idea is to make something new, and along these
lines the illusion of something new can be just as important. If a story
or poem makes someone say, "Yes, but what is it?" then it's right for Emanations.
Essays should be exuberant, daring, and free of pedantry. Length is a
consideration in making publication decisions, but in keeping with the
spirit of the project contributors should consider length to be “open.”
Our editorial vision is evolving. Contributors should see themselves as actively shaping the "vision" of Emanations.
Send files with brief cover note to Carter Kaplan:
IAsubmissions at hotmail.com
Deadline: February 1, 2014
Emanations is a not-for-profit literary project and contributors cannot be compensated at this time. All proceeds from the sale of Emanations will support
the efforts of International Authors to publish new voices from around
the world. Contributors receive a copy upon publication.
Please post questions, suggestions and ideas. The project is a
collaborative effort, and as we share ideas the "vision" transforms,
evolves, and grows. When we write stories and poems we hope to bring to
bear the entire battery of modern and postmodern literary devices. More
simply: we like good, strong writing. Our essays are incisive, precise,
keen, challenging, and driven by the writer's desire to advance an
intelligent audience's understanding of important subjects.
The Fine Print:
1) Submit files as follows: double space, Microsoft Word, Times New
Roman size #11. Set Tabs for .2" and set spacing at 15. The book will
be formatted by the editors before publication.
2) No simultaneous submissions (contributors should get fairly quick
feedback anyway, especially if their submission meets our needs).
Material that is obviously pulled from a file and has nothing to do with
the goals of the anthology won't get any feedback beyond the initial
3) Word count/line count? See details above. We're flexible, but
contributors should be sensible when considering what they send in. A
novella? Well, maybe, and so on.... Rules of thumb: a) Stories: very
short to 20-30 pages. b) Poems: send in 5-10 pages. c) Essays: 5-10-30
4) Published as hard copy only—Emanations will be available on
Amazon. Participants who make a substantial contribution of material,
editorial work, or art will get a copy. It can take some time to get
copies to contributors outside of North America. In the case of our
first anthology, for example, it took forty-five days to get a copy to a
contributor in to Nepal.
5) In the past, International Authors has made it possible for
contributors to purchases copies “at cost” using coupon codes, and so
on. International Authors is a consortium, and as such every contributor
is a “member” or our community, and contributors are encouraged to help
promote the anthology by sending review copies to newspapers, journals
and relevant Web sites.
6) Copyright "reverts" to contributors upon publication. That is, after a
piece appears in Emanations, the contributor can seek to publish their
piece elsewhere. Contributors should understand that Emanations will
remain for sale on Amazon indefinitely. All materials appearing in
Emanations are under the exclusive copyright of the contributing writers
7) Note to poets: Please do not send poems
as individual files. All poetry submissions should be sent as a SINGLE
MircosoftWord file formatted in Times New Roman, size 11. Please submit
three to ten pages.
