Dear Brittlepaperians, here is a publishing opportunity for all you aspiring writers.
The Jeli is a literary platform that supports innovative storytelling projects. They are calling for submission.
According to the ad placed on their website, they are on the look out for “writers who are not well represented in mainstream publishing, particularly black women.”
So finish up that story you’ve been working on and ship it off to them.
Here is a quick overview of the key details:
STYLE & SUBJECT: We publish fiction. Every story is different, but it would be advisable to read our stories to get a sense of whether your story will fit into our project. You can read the stories here.
LENGTH: So far, the Jeli stories have ranged from approximately 2,500 and just over 6,000 words. Our focus is quality not quantity so the length is up to you. Please note that you only need to submit a short story, other elements, such as a monologue and imagery, will be worked on if your story is accepted.
HOW TO SUBMIT
- When preparing your manuscript for submission, please ensure that the following information is contained in the header of your document on each page:
- Your Name
- Your Date of Birth
- Your Email Address
- Story Word Count
- Story Title
- You will need to submit an url which provides access to the document in a web-accessible format, e.g. a link to a Google Doc or a link to a cloud-based storage platform such as Dropbox, where an MS word document can be downloaded.
- Once you have the document ready, you can make your submission using this form.
