Submission Roulette III
April 7, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT
Sponsored by GrubStreet’s Muse & the Marketplace conference
Tired of opaque form rejections that offer zero insights into why your submission “wasn’t a fit” or “doesn’t meet our publication’s needs”? Then join Submission Roulette III for, finally, some candid answers. Recommended Reading editors Halimah Marcus and Alyssa Songsiridej will review your anonymously submitted first pages, reading them for the first time live on screen, and share their immediate reactions as they go. What leads an editor to pass after just a few paragraphs, and what entices them to keep reading? And, since the chat has been so lively during past roulettes, we’ve added a fun new twist: we’ll all drink (or hydrate with a non-alcoholic beverage) every time we spot a POV violation.
Submission instructions: You can find the link to submit in the chat, on the righthand side of the event page. (Please note, you will only see the chat if you are registered for the event.) If you are unable to find the submission portal or have questions about submitting, email [email protected] Please submit one page of fiction, double spaced, in 12 pt, Times New Roman font by Sunday, April 3 at 11:59PM. Your submission should be the first page of a story or novel chapter that you would like to submit (to a literary magazine, agent, MFA program, etc.). Do not include any identifying information on the document. You may submit only one entry.
We will select and anonymize a dozen or so submissions to read and respond to during the salon. Prescreens will be conducted by other RR editors so Alyssa and Halimah will read the work for the first time live on Crowdcast.
Submissions are optional. You are welcome to attend the salon without submitting. Please be advised that salon submissions will not be considered for publication, and that not all submissions will be read during the salon. For information on how to submit your stories for publication in Electric Literature, please visit our submissions page.
