Theme Thursday: New Forms & Shadows
Introducing yet another set of special themes for Form. Reborn and PicFic. While our standard guidelines still apply, we are aggressively seeking:
- New forms. Let’s make up new forms. Anyone want to give it a try? I’m feeling jet-lagged and silly, so now’s your chance. Anything goes for Form. Reborn–any line length, any meter, as long as the piece is 140 characters or less. Just come up with a pattern, give it a name, and submit three pieces written in it. (Deadline: 30 June 2009 to firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Picos that involve shadows for PicFic, written in 1, 7, & 14 tweet lengths (see submission guidelines for explanation). Like to write mystery/suspense? Get ’em in while you can! (Deadline: 30 June 2009 to email@example.com)
- Multilingual Submissions for both journals. Write any pico or poem in English to meet the character-count guidelines, then give us your interpretation in another language. The English will run on Twitter. Translations with the English will be posted on the author’s archive page. (Deadline: none–we LOVE multilingual submissions)
First one in gets special treatment;-) Ready, steady, GO!
Cheers, J. S.
