submission guidelines

diaphanous micro 2018 – submission guidelines
Please see our MISSION STATEMENT and the SPRING 2017 and Fall 2017 issues of Diaphanous on our website BEFORE submitting your own original, UNPUBLISHED literary and visual art.

PLEASE NOTE: our aesthetic / poetics is on the spectrum of EXPERIMENTAL AND POSTMODERN per our more detailed mission statement. We welcome creative work that challenges and blurs the boundaries of genre and styles/schools of literature and visual art. We champion polyphony, multiple POVs, language-centered texts vs. the conventional “I-centered” lyric, poetic and narrative “density” (compression), prose poetry, hybrid, hyper-text, micro-fiction; literature that is beautiful and/or unusual.

READING PERIOD: please contact Krysia Jopek at diaphanouspress@gmail.com to query before submitting your art or writing.

LITERARY ART
POETRY: Submit 5 – 8 poems (beginning a new page for each poem) or a longer sequence poem (10 pages maximum) — each separate poem should have a title or an overarching title of a sequence or selection from a larger, unpublished work. We welcome poems of all lengths and colloborative poetical texts also (ten pages maximum for total submission).

FICTION: Submit 5 – 7 very short fiction pieces (maximum 750 words) of micro-fiction (up to three pages total for micro-fiction with a title for each), flash, and hybrid.

VISUAL ART
Please submit 8 – 18 images of original paintings (traditional and digital), photography (traditional and digital), architecture (models photographed or digital).
Minimum resolution 96 dpi. Please note: we need to format in a minimum of 500 pixels for the best possible viewing of our journal.
