Synchronized Chaos Magazine invites visual and written submissions
All artists and writers in this community are invited to submit work to the literary/artistic/cultural/nature and travel writing/scientific webzine Synchronized Chaos. (http://www.synchchaos.com) This includes novel excerpts - we encourage novelists to provide some description of the project along with the excerpt and a link where the whole piece may be purchased. We also do book reviews for fiction and nonfiction.

Information on the zine and how to submit, from the Facebook group http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=20763137372&ref=mf :

The brainchild of some of my friends and colleagues, along with myself, the publication provides thoughtful art/cultural/literary/scientific/social commentary/essay material. Our title comes from the mathematical concept of chaos theory - the study of whether we can find order in systems which seem to be random at first glance, whether anything in nature can be proved to be truly random or whether some systems just seem that way because we don't know enough about the initial conditions. This is a social experiment and a fun way to stay coherent without limiting our contributors' creativity or having to turn away excellent work because it isn't a fit.

This has been quiet lately ...

... but this forum has always helped kick my ass in gear when I'm in danger of falling out of Submissions Mode, so I'm going to post to it anyway. Cause I've been busy, and want to stay that way.

Recent activity:

*My short story "John Peel Died For Your Sins" has been accepted to Chiron Review.

*My poem "After the End of the World" has been accepted to the UK fantasy journal Dark Horizons.

*I have a whole mess of poems at Sage Trail Poetry Magazine, with fingers crossed. It's relatively little, but I'm very fond of it, and its had some great contributors.

Have a weird rattlebag of poems that I'm readying to send out -- some have stalled because they need revising, some I just need some distance from. None of them seem to go together, so that might be part of the problem. It's hard to put a bunch of poems in one packet that almost feel like they were written by different people. Maybe that's just me, or maybe I just need to find the right venue.

Inspired by Sand From The Urns from Mohn und Gedächtnis / Poppy and Memory
Dream and Memory

Moldgreen is
           the circus     tent of         flesh.
Before three death rings your decapitated ring
                                                                       man cries. [devouring still more]
For me         he     beat     stakes     into     the         ground and     peeled the     skin                                                 from a                 
He pulled     it off
         smooth swiping    
                movements                 and then I ate

                                the inside      [devoured]                                 was redder

                                    I remembered.

He draws my visage in blood on the decomposing corpse of the tent.
I swallow a bone and the bodies
                move again.

A quick update
Recent acceptances 'round these parts: Coal Hill Review, diode (who took THREE!), and Field.

I'm especially thrilled about Field because I've been trying to get in there for years - checked my records and my first submission to them was in 1989. :)

Good luck to everyone who's out there submitting!

Dalhousie Review question
Hello! I was wondering if anyone here has experience submitting to The Dalhousie Review, a literary magazine in Canada. I'm going to start sending out my work (poetry) this spring, and I'd like to submit to them, but I'm concerned about the fact that they have no information about reading periods, simultaneous submissions, or payment on their website or in the most recent issue of the magazine. I enjoy most of the work they publish, and because they're affiliated with Dalhousie University, I'm confident they're a reputable mag, but I would feel more comfortable knowing the aforementioned information before I send anything off. I'm a novice at this, and have no idea whether it looks bad to email the editor asking about this. If anyone has advice on the etiquette such an inquiry, or, better yet, knows of another source where I might find this information (a database/reference list for lit mags, etc), it would be much appreciated!

Call for Submissions: Garden Verse
Horticulture, the oldest and most respected magazine for avid gardeners in North America, is pleased to announce the addition of poetry to its editorial features. Cave Canem fellow (and fellow gardener) Michelle Courtney Berry's "What I Learned in the Garden" has been chosen as the debut poem, to appear in the April 2009 issue and online at Hortmag.com.

"For over 100 years, Horticulture has been dedicated to celebrating the passion of avid, influential gardeners, and there is an even longer history of poetry inspired by flowers and gardens -- from William Blake to Louise Glück, and so many great poets between them," explained publisher and editorial director, Guy LeCharles Gonzalez. "Adding garden verse to our editorial mix is simply another way to celebrate and encourage a real passion for gardening."

Horticulture is accepting submissions on a rolling basis, and is seeking poetry about, related to, or in honor of gardeners and gardening: traditional forms and free verse, the meditative lyric and the "light" or comic poem, the work of the famous and the work of the unknown. Our one limitation is length; we are unable to publish very long poems, and our limit is 42 lines.

Submissions should be sent as an email attachment (.DOC or .RTF only) per the guidelines posted at http://www.hortmag.com/submissions/

For more information on Horticulture, visit Hortmag.com.

Market for Science/Biomedicine Poems

I received this notice through a professional group - permission was included to share anywhere poets may be lurking...

If you have written any (unpublished) poetry touching on
the intersection of communication and science [including but certainly not limited to biomedicine], please submit it for consideration for "Peer-Renewed," a column that debuted in the July-August 2006 issue of Science Editor, the bimonthly journal of the Council of Science Editors (CSE), based in Reston, VA.  The ideal maximum length of each poem (or cluster of poems) is about 90 typeset lines.  Type your poetry within the body of an email, to prevent any difficulties with opening attachments.  Add a short paragraph about your educational and professional background, including whether or not you have had any poetry or other literary work published before; note that this material may be edited for inclusion in the column, if your poetry is accepted.  Email (
mknatterud@surgery.arizona.edu) to Mary E. Knatterud, PhD, Editor, "Peer-Renewed" column, Science Editor.  Thanks!

Invitation to submit to a new variety webzine, Synchronized Chaos
Hi everyone, I invite all the artists in this community, and anyone else you may know, to submit artwork or writing to our new literary/artistic/cultural/nature and travel writing/scientific webzine Synchronized Chaos!

Information on the zine and how to submit, from the Facebook group http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=20763137372&ref=mf :

This is all of our new brainchild, an art/cultural/literary/scientific/social commentary/essay webzine tentatively called "Synchronized Chaos" (referring to some kind of not-obviously-apparent logic that emerges spontaneously from randomnity, basically a fun way to have a theme without having a theme.)

Sort of a way to help the aspiring artists we constantly meet to get their names out there and spotlight some excellent work which should have an audience but the artists don't want to go through the publication process. And to give people committed to worthwhile causes a way to speak out or to use their personal experiences to educate others.

Everyone's invited to submit (and everything should be accepted, unless it's obscene or hateful). If you are interested please send a submission via email anytime this summer. We're working towards setting up a regular editing board and designating people to handle certain kinds of submissions, but for now you may use my email, cedeptula@sbcglobal.net

We're online at http://www.synchchaos.com with a lovely format designed by Tabitha Smith (http://www.tabithagracesmith.com) and invite you to check it out!

We are not a paying market as of yet but hope to become one as we grow and sell advertising and/or host contests. The magazine's online contents will remain free to provide artists and writers with the greatest level of exposure possible.

So far we have received a good variety of submissions, and look forward to more! We're also chaos_zine on LJ and would be a publishing credit for any visual artist or writer to put on his/her bio or proposal or resume.

You may either pitch or send a completed product (attachments OK but prefer writing or thumbnails or JPEG images pasted in the body of the email.) Please put "Synchronized Chaos Submission" in the subject line and please feel free to include an artist statement or bio if you would like.

Also - our magazine is as much about building community and relationships with artists as it is about publication. We'd be happy to see artists and writers post and chat with each other in chaos_zine or on the Facebook page and would be glad to comment/critique or dialogue with you about your work if you would like.
