Vine Leaves Literary Journal

What they want:
"Vignette" is a word that originally meant "something that may be written on a vine-leaf." It’s a snapshot in words. It differs from flash fiction or a short story in that its aim does not lie within the realms of traditional structure or plot. The vignette focuses on one element, mood, character, setting or object. It's descriptive, excellent for character or theme exploration and wordplay. Through a vignette, you create an atmosphere.

We will accept all genres except erotica. Write something brilliant and woo us into publishing it!
Length: Up to 800 words for fiction, 40 lines poetry
Payment: $5 per acceptance (see website for details)

Orthogonal

What they want:
Avoid recognizable categories: We can gum 31 flavors of repetitive predigested nostalgia anywhere. If there’s already a name, a magazine, or a pat cover image for it we probably don’t want it. Give us something that requires a little teeth.

Payment: $100, royalties + e-copy

Splatterpunk Anthology

What they want:
It’s true, the splatterpunk horror anthology I have wanted to get off the ground for over six months is finally in the gurgling stages of infancy, and that is where you come in! I’m looking for 20+ talented writers (and possibly poets..? Is splatterpunk poetry a thing? If not, can we make it a thing..?) to contribute to a horror anthology with a theme based around the word “home”. There are of course, a variety of interpretations to the word home within the horror genre. From aliens seeking a new home planet, zombies driving a young family from their home, home invasion by escaped convicts or some other creation you devise… The topic is no more limiting than your own imagination, so I hope to get a variety of interesting and action-filled submissions!
Deadline: August 13, 2015
Length: 1,000-3,500 words
Payment: Advance (depending on length of contribution), royalties + 1 print & 1 ebook contributor copy
