Current Submissions

Pure Slush is working through a 7-volume series around the 7 deadly sins, to celebrate 7 years of publishing. (We celebrated our 7th anniversary in December 2017.)

Lust Vol. 1, Gluttony Vol. 2, Greed Vol. 3, Sloth Vol. 4 and Wrath Vol. 5 have all been published and submissions for Envy Vol. 6 have closed … which means …

submissions for Pride Vol. 7 are open!

The theme for the volume is pride.

PLEASE NOTE: this is not about LGBTIQ pride. This is about the sin of pride. This is about being too proud, about being haughty and obsessive and untouchable and unreasonable.

(If you have stories about LGBTIQ pride, save them and adapt them for the Truth Serum Press project Stories My Gay Uncle Told Me. Submissions for Stories My Gay Uncle Told Me open 10th April 2019.)

 

For Pride 7 Deadly Sins Vol. 7, your submission must be:

  • original, so previously unpublished online or in print (so that includes authors’ websites and blogs);
  • 1000 maximum word limit for each submission: fiction and non-fiction, stories, essays and poetry;
  • 100 word minimum for stories and essays; 50 word minimum for poetry;
  • must somehow incorporate ‘pride’. This can be as simple as including the word ‘pride’, or making it a major theme or subject. As always, we are flexible with how writers interpret this theme. BUT ‘pride’ as a word or a concept must be included somehow.

If you wish to be involved or have questions, email edpureslush@live.com.au.

Please submit your stories, poems, essays, etc with Pride / Title / Word Length in Submission Title by clicking here.

Submissions close 9th April 2019.
