Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The A3 Press is looking for new chapbook submissions. Deadline is 10 January, 2020.

The A3 Press is a place for work that might struggle to find a traditional home, work that's lyrical and intense, a bit weird, perhaps, hybrid, experimental. We like work that is urgent, that says something about what it's like to be alive at this point in history. 

Do you have a series of poems or short stories, or a long story that can be spread out over several pages? Maybe a short play in 12 parts or scenes, or even 12 very short plays? Do you have a combination of drawings and short stories? Poems and photographs? Maybe 12 drawings or photographs without text that would fit into our A3 map-fold format?

We publish approximately ten titles a year. Email us directly with any questions, or contact us via Twitter.

Prizes Details: 

Selected titles receive £200 (approx $250) and 10 copies of their chapbook.

Eligibility:

Overview

This program is for writers working in autobiography, fiction, and auto-fiction. With the support of guest faculty, participants will explore the distinctions and intersecting themes between genres, such as when to be beholden to the truth and when to break free from it, writing fiction vs. memoir (and how to decide which is which), and teasing satisfying narrative threads from real life. 

Through these themes and questions, guest faculty will help writers develop their own unique voice and approach to writing autobiography, memoir, and fiction.

What does the program offer?

Over two weeks, writers will have time and space to work on their individual manuscripts. Editors Halimah Marcus and Jess Zimmerman, from Electric Literature will be available for editorial consultations and will lead a group seminar on strategies for getting published. 

Guest faculty Meredith Talusan and Susan Choi will lead group and individual discussions around the program’s themes and approaches relevant to the process of writing narrative fiction, auto-fiction, memoir, autobiography, and other related subgenres. 

The program will feature a guest speaker event featuring award-winning Canadian writer Dionne Brand, as well as two reading nights featuring writers reading from their works in progress alongside guest faculty.
