Blood Pudding Press


NEW CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Blood Pudding Press to publish ECTOPLASMIC NECROPOLIS in April 2008.

Submissions are being accepted from January 20th-March 20th 2008.

Blood Pudding Press will be accepting submissions for its next one-off, multi-writer project from January 20th through March 20th 2008. The new magazine will be published in April 2008 and will serve as an evil sister to [GROWLING SOFTLY], which was published in October 2007. The new magazine will be called ECTOPLASMIC NECROPOLIS.

Blood Pudding Press specializes in poetry and artsy little misfit offerings, so preference will indeed be devoted to poetry submissions. However, in addition to poetry, I will also be willing to consider poetic flash fiction, hybrids, collaborations, poetic blog excerpts/journal entries/dream blurbs, short poetic essays, and poetry chapbook reviews.

You may familiarize yourself with Blood Pudding Press sensibilities by reading any of the press’s previously released materials (information is available via the Blood Pudding blog--the materials themselves are available via the Blood Pudding Etsy shop), but here are a few little hints as to what the editor does and does not tend to adore.

WE DON’T WANT YOUR BLAND VANILLA SNACK PACK PUDDING.

WE WANT WEIRDLY BLENDED BLOOD PUDDING UP IN HERE.

THINK OF LIVE BOMBS PLANTED IN INNOCENT CREAM PUFFS.

THINK OF METASTASIZING EVIL TWINS.

No previously published in other print or online magazines, but posted on a personal blog is okay. Simultaneous submissions are fine; just promptly inform if any of your submitted pieces are accepted elsewhere. An extensive cover letter is not necessary, but a brief introduction would be appreciated. If you’re someone who has a tendency to bitch at editors who reject your poems, then please don’t bother submitting to Blood Pudding Press. I will have to reject some quality work because it doesn’t suit my particular sensibilities and that’s the way it is. If you think your material might be a delicious fit for my sensibilities, then please submit 3-5 pieces (not one piece; not six pieces) to JulietX@Bust.com either in the body or as one attachment and include a brief bio note. Feel free to let me know if you have queries. I will be accepting material
from 15-30 different writers—and each accepted contributor will receive one complimentary copy of ECTOPLASMIC NECROPOLIS.

Let the fermentation begin.
