Call Me [Out]

We invite you to stop holding back! For the 11th issue of Call Me [Brackets], we’re excavating truth. We want to read it all: the ugly and uncomfortable, the beautiful and bold, the vulnerable and the brazen. Tell us about a time when you broke free from something, crossed a boundary, felt alone or exposed. We’re accepting submissions until Dec. 1 and we want to hear your confessions—all truths, every truth, your truths, real or imagined truths. Let it OUT!

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.
