Saraba Calls for Submissions for the Sex Issue

Saraba Magazine is accepting short fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, and excerpts that reflect the diversity of sex and sexuality. Note that the publishers and editors have a bias for experimental writing. The magazine’s 11th Issue will explore the subject of sex and sexuality – sex as ‘being’ and sex as ‘doing.’ How does sex manifest itself as a question of personhood, difference, affection, rights, protest, etc.

Interested writers who are unsure about their work are advised to send queries to the Managing Editor of Saraba Magazine. Submissions can be made through their Submissions Portal.

Guidelines:

– Send your work in an attachment in any of our three major categories: Fiction, Poetry and Non-Fiction.
– Send no more than one work at a time, and wait for a response before you send another.
– Fictional works should have a maximum 5,000 words. Poets are allowed to send a maximum of 3 poems. Non-fiction submissions are expect to contain a broad range of new creative writing, including short memoirs, interviews, reviews, creative non-fiction, creative journalism, etc. Word count limit for this is 2,500 words.
– Submissions are also open to digital art including photographs, illustrations, paintings and so forth. Kindly send in high resolution jpeg files (not larger than 4 MB).
– Submissions should be accompanied by a bio of not more than 50 words
To submit, use the Submission Manager . For more information, go to the SARABA MAGAZINE WEBSITE

  2. @jef, who?!

    It’s good.

  3. I will like to know what a query letter is o.Anybody cares to help?

    1. In the literary sector, a query letter is like and introduction letter. It introduces you as a writer to either an editor, an agent or a publisher. In it, you give a small bio of your life, and a summary of what you want them to have a look at. This could be a short story, an article, or a manuscript of a full length novel. It is called query because you are asking them if they would have the time or interest to take a look at the full work. You are sometimes also asking if they’re looking for something like that or if they’ll prefer something else.

      You can use Google search to look for a sample. Search for “query to a literary agent”.
