580 Split

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Call for submissions
580 Split is seeking submissions for its 16th issue. Submissions will be accepted September 1st, 2013 through October 31st, 2013.  We welcome exemplary works of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and visual art.  Experimental work, international writers, and marginalized perspectives are highly encouraged.

The theme for the next issue is Mischief. What we create as artists and writers is not always nice and orderly. But there is value in disregarding traditional notions of what is good to create something real. Give us your brats, your troublemakers and your anti-heroes, and we will give back an issue to be proud of.

Submission guidelines
We use Submittable to manage all submissions.  Sign up for free online.  Please do not send any submissions via mail or email: they will not be considered.

Do not submit previously published work.  We accept simultaneous submissions, however, please notify us immediately upon acceptance of your work elsewhere via the Submission Manager.  All rights revert to the author(s) upon publication.  Include your contact information in the separate box on the Submissions page.  Please do not include contact information (name, address, etc.) in the file of your work.  Unfortunately we cannot pay you for your work, but those accepted for publication will receive a free copy of the journal.
