Greensburg Magazine editor Moira Richardson sent out the following call for submissions a while back, but I only came across it recently, so the deadline is coming up soon.
Calling All Writers / Artists
Greensburg,PA-based magazine now seeking submissions with a local* flavor:
Non-fiction pieces up to 1,000 words on topics such as:
Bicycling, Dumpster Diving, Recycling, Local Politics, Current Events, Arts & Entertainment, Healthy Lifestyles, & so much more!
Interviews with Greensburg natives and local* celebrities.
Some flash fiction and poetry; ideally, Greensburg will figure prominently in the work.
Black & white photography, drawings, and comic strips**.
Send queries / completed articles / art submissions to:
The deadline for the first issue is DECEMBER 12th.
You will not be paid for your contribution, but you will receive 2 contributor copies, with the opportunity to buy more issues at cost. This magazine will be distributed for free throughout Greensburg, and, we hope, fill the gap left by other local publications.
We will reply to every submission within one month, usually with comments.
* NOTE FOR NON-LOCALS: While local pieces are given preference, we'd love to read any great article that touches on the issues listed or above or similiar subjects that you'd like to send in. Query first, if you are unsure, or send the full text article in the body of the email or as *.rtf file. We are a collective of open-minded, intelligent people and we'd love to hear what you have to say about the state of YOUR world!
** We don't have any comic strips at all, so if you send in one, you have a darn good chance of being accepted.
