Call for submissions

Low Light Magazine wants your authentic voices. Real people. Real writing. No bullshit. Your unique visions, revelations; your gobshite symphonies.

Dig deep. Go find. Go talk. Your words should carry reality inside them; time, place, substance. Lost dog journalism. Vagabond stories. Concrete pictures.

Content in harmony with form. Say it as you see it, don’t be scared. All realities heard & considered.

Low Light will be a guiding force in literature. Every town and city has its ‘scenes’, its own ‘happening’ and we’re here to join the dots, cut out the bullshit & the cliques, and bring it all together.

POEMS - 3 or less.

Experimental in form is not discouraged but poems need to be grounded in some form of reality. They need to speak truths, ideas, perceptions in both content and form.

PROSE - flash fiction, short stories.

No set word limit. Short or long, content is key.

JOURNALISM - interest pieces, interviews, real people.

Photography/illustration accompaniments are preferable. Again, we want to see the areas of life that are often left to obscurity. Gonzo meets Mayhew. Feel free to pitch ideas.

PHOTOGRAPHY - social documentary

We encourage short collections of images (up to 5) of the world we live in; the people, the places and the poetic qualities of everyday existence.

PRIZES:

In an ideal world we would pay all contributors. However, at the moment we cannot. We receive no state funding, grants etc. (and will never ask for it). Instead, we offer:

£30 - for best photography / journalism contribution.

£30 - for best prose / poetry contribution.

Free contributor copies.

No submission fee.

All submissions emailed to: Contact(at)hi-vispress(dot)com

Please include the submission type in the subject and a short third-person bio (please do not state where previously published, it’s boring. We want to know about YOU)

Submissions close: 1st June 2017.

Advertisers considered. BUT must have similar ethos and be of interest to the readership.
