ABOUT THE MAGAZINE
REAEDR is a magazine of one word poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, produced by the NewLights Press in Colorado Springs, CO. Each issue will be built around a particular theme, and that theme, as well as the pieces inside, will determine the form, shape, color, material, processes, etc. of the issue. 2017 is the “pilot year,” with one issue planned: WAR (out now and available here). The theme of the second issue will be: “FUCK EM IF THEY CANT TAKE A JOKE, OR SAME OLD WHITE SUPREMACY, DIFFERENT _______ CLOWN.” (Deadline of January 10, 2018, out in Spring/Summer of 2018). If these first two go well, we will try to continue publishing REAEDR once or twice a year.
WHAT TO SUBMIT
We are looking for one word, or one-word, poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, related in some way to the theme of the issue(s). Submissions can be “straight text,” or visual (but still text-based) in nature. We also welcome submissions that play with, challenge, interrogate, or complicate the “one word” form. Translations and submissions in languages other than English, “real” or “not,” are welcome.
HOW TO SUBMIT
THE DEADLINE FOR THE NEXT ISSUE, "FUCK EM IF THEY CAN'T TAKE A JOKE, OR SAME OLD WHITE SUPREMACY, DIFFERENT _______ CLOWN," is January 10, 2018.
Submissions should be made via email, to editor Aaron Cohick at newlightspressATgmailDOTcom. The actual pieces can be typed in the body of the email, attached as PDFs, Microsoft Word docs, or RTFs. Please use PDFs, JPEGs or TIFFs for image submissions, at least 300 dpi at 100% size. Please write first if attachments are too big to send via email.
ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING IN THE BODY OF THE EMAIL:
AUTHOR’S NAME: How it should be printed. No anonymous submissions please. Pseudonymous submissions are fine. Do not include a bio. We will ask for a short bio if your submission is accepted.
MAILING ADDRESS: For contributor copies.
CATEGORY: All submissions must be made in a category: poetry, fiction, or nonfiction. A category is required for each piece submitted.
THE PIECE(S): An individual submission can include up to 5 separate pieces. Clearly indicate title, if there is one. “Untitled” is a title, and will be treated as such. Please put each piece on its own page(s).
We will do our best to send each author digital proofs of their piece(s) before each issue goes into production.
Here in these opening stages, compensation for authors/artists will be in the form of two contributor’s copies. We hope to be able to include monetary compensation as well, after things get rolling (the target price point for each issue will be $15 to $30).
The first two issues will be printed in editions of 150 copies, with roughly 100 copies for sale (the rest will go to contributors). Most distribution will happen through direct sales and subscriptions via this website. (Subscriptions will be available for purchase in the near future.) We hope to make some copies available for sale in bookstores or art galleries. Please contact us if you are a proprietor or curator for such a place, or if you just know of a good place for that.
