Call Me [When It’s Over]

Perseverance is so last year—we’re ready for the pandemic to end. We’re ready for political progress and revolution. And we’re ready to read your submissions for the Spring 2022 issue “Call Me [When It’s Over].” Your feelings can’t be cured by a good night’s sleep, so divulge your stories of fatigue, despair, and exhaustion. Let us read your not-so-happy endings, your doomsday narrations, and your raw retellings. We know your optimism is a façade, so let us see your pessimism that’s clawing at the surface.

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 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) we would like to be mentioned as the outfit that published your work first.
