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 two issues planned: WAR (out in July 2017) and “FUCK EM IF THEY CANT TAKE A JOKE, OR SAME OLD WHITE SUPREMACY, DIFFERENT _______ CLOWN.” (Deadline of August 15, 2017, out by December 2017). If this first year goes well, we will continue publishing REAEDR 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 AUGUST 15, 2017.

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).

 

PROOFS

We will do our best to send each author digital proofs of their piece(s) before each issue goes into production.

 

COMPENSATION

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 $25).

 

DISTRIBUTION

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.
