Our second Slim Volume – Wherever Your Roam – will be published in May 2015 and will feature poetry and flash fiction involving place and environment.
Every story happens somewhere, but your place needs to be more than a setting – it should almost be a character in its own right, or an otherwise irreplaceable part of your poem or story. It doesn’t matter if it’s a tale about what happened to someone traveling in distant locations, your feelings for a place you haven’t been but already love, or a story about someone who hasn’t left their hometown even once.
The only other requirement, as ever, is realism (magical realism is okay) – please don’t set your story, for example, at Hogwarts or on Tattooine.
So give us all an experience – good, bad or otherwise – with an environment or location of your choice in one of these forms, or a blend of the two:
- Poems – 40 lines or less
- Flash fiction – 750 words or less
Previously published work is fine, as long as you let me know where it appeared first, and you still own the rights.
Slim Volume will be edited by Kate Garrett.
