OPEN CALL
OROBORO online lit journal
Entries Due: 3/20/18
We are excited to announce our submission period is currently OPEN for submissions in poetry, flash fiction, and comics to be published in issue one due for publication April 2018. It can be challenging and frustrating for artists early in their writing histories to seek publication, and OROBORO was founded in part to address that frustration. OROBORO will work hard to publish new and emerging writers; we love being the first publication for authors and deserve the same care and generosity shown to published / established writers. We'll be publishing three issues this year alongside two writing contests with cash prizes and guest judge review and comment on the work so there will be a lot to look forward to in the coming year!
