Zacatecas is currently accepting submissions for our Summer 2004 edition. We're particularly interested in short fiction and poetry, en inglés o español.
Our staff is looking for polished, powerful work with a contemporary feel. Some of our favorite authors are Terrence Winch, Charlie Mehrhoff, Lorrie Moore, and Miriam Sagan, but we also have a soft spot for less-living writers like Jack Kerouac, Christopher Isherwood, and Kenji Miyazawa. Above all we're looking for work that's well-written and genuine.
Fiction or poetry should be sent in the body of an e-mail along with a short (approx. 40 words) bio. Send no more than one story or 3-5 poems at a time. For audio or visual works, send a web address where the work can be viewed or downloaded. Simultaneous submissions are fine but please let us know right away if the piece is accepted elsewhere. Send submissions to:
Zacatecas acquires first time publication rights online and the right to maintain the work in our archives (online and in CD-ROM format). After publication, rights revert back to the author. We are currently unable to pay, but do occasionally put out a CD of back issues for our authors.
