Submissions for poetry and pros are now open. The theme of the next issue is 'People We Have Left Behind'.
Submissions will close on March 1st 2017
There is no theme for art (image) submissions. There is also no deadline on submissions for art pieces.
We STRONGLY suggest that you download a copy of our previous issues to see what kind of things we go for - trust us, if you know what we like then you are way ahead of the pack.
Submission Guidelines (aka “The Technical Stuff”):
All submissions MUST be original, previously unpublished works (however, if a piece was previously published on a personal blog we will consider it as long as you make this fact known to us). Plagiarism will not be tolerated and is punishable by death (ok, not really…but we will be very annoyed with you!).
We accept submissions in all genres – including genres that many other publications overlook such as horror, science fiction, fantasy, children's literature, graphic novel art, anything you can think of. If your work resonates with us we will publish it!
We strongly recommend you have a read of our previous issue, to see the type of pieces we are inclined to accept. Think, quirky with a sense of fun and humour. Much like ourselves.
Please email all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with the header “Submission” followed by the type of submission and the title of your piece.
E.g. Submission: Poetry – Rain on the Windowpane
Please also include a short bio (max 50 words).
All writing submissions (short fiction/poetry/one act plays etc.) must be submitted as a .doc or .docx attachment, double spaced, Times New Roman, 12 point font.
We will accept 2 short story, creative non-fiction and one-act play submissions per author, with a maximum word count of 3,000 words for each piece.
We will accept up to 3 poetry submissions.
Each submission must be saved to a separate Word document and the file must be clearly named. We are sorry but we do not accept simulanious submissions. If you have submitted elsewhere please do not send us your work for consideration. We hate choosing work we love, only to have it take away. It's like you're teasing us with chocolate during Lent.
Art/Photography/Comic submissions must be sent as a high resolution .jpg attachment. The file must be clearly named. We will accept up to 3 artwork submissions per person. Art submissions are not limited to our themes. They can be submitted throughout the year for consideration.
Copyright (aka The Legal Stuff)
The author, artist, photographer etc. retains copyright of his/her individual piece, however, Silver Apples Magazine has the right of first publication.
If your work is later published elsewhere, we would appreciate it if you would mention that it was previously published by Silver Apples Magazine (we want to get our name out there and let the world know the quality of our contributors)
By submitting you agree to be on our mailing list, just FYI.
