Pumpkin welcomes submissions of fiction (short stories, novel excerpts up to 2,000 words) or poetry, from writers of all ages and backgrounds. All submissions must be in Word (.doc) or plain text (.txt) format, and accompanied by a brief author bio (150 words max). Submissions must be the author’s own, unpublished work. Five pieces (per issue) will be selected to be published on pumpkin, and the authors will be notified by email. Authors whose work is not selected for inclusion will not be notified. Only one submission per author per issue, please.
Submissions are now being accepted for issue 2 of Pumpkin, due to be published in spring 2009. Deadline for submissions to issue 2: April 1st 2008.
Pumpkin will also publish original articles on writing, submitting manuscripts to agents and publishers, and other topics of interest to writers. Article submissions are always welcome (ignore the issue deadlines); please make sure you stick to the appropriate document format (.doc or .txt), and include a brief bio. Label all article submissions “Article” (i.e. in the email subject field) to avoid confusion.
Email submissions and questions to email@example.com.
