Call Me [to Celebrate]

It’s time to celebrate! For the 10th issue of Call Me [Brackets], we’re inviting you to remember your triumphs, and what made them so special. Submissions for our Spring 2023 issue “Call Me [to Celebrate]” are open from January 15th to April 1st. We want to learn what celebration looks like to you. Confetti streaming through the air, hot chocolate by the fire, reuniting with family, or bringing home a new pet. Tell us about your grandest victories and your smallest wins—even your most crushing failures—whatever you find worth celebrating, real or imagined. So snap on your party hats, crank up the music, pop the champagne, and call us to celebrate!

Simultaneous submissions: Perfectly fine—all we ask is that you notify us if it’s picked up elsewhere.

Payment: We would love to pay our fantastic, wonderful, fabulous, etc., insert your adjectives of choice here authors and artists, but we subsist entirely off of stolen mints from restaurants and our own creative endeavors to bring your work to the page.

Rights: We ask for first North American serial rights. Meaning, we would like to be the first to publish your accepted work and we would like to keep your work available in our website archives for as long as Call Me [Brackets] and/or the internet exists. If your work is reprinted at a later date: 1) congratulations! 2) please mention us as the outfit that published your work first.
