Call Me [Progress]

Nothing is made in an instant. Everything comes one step, one word, one murmur, one shout at a time. We are accepting submissions for our Spring 2021 issue “Call Me [Progress]”now through April 1st. Call us Progress because we want to celebrate your momentum, real or imaginary. We want the stories forged in the chaos of last year. The poetry dredged from the depths one spoonful at a time. The work that crawled its way out of the gloom. So, send us the new, the weird, the hopeful, the boundary-breaking, the first gallant tries and the marvelous fails that have brought you to where you are now. Let’s make this leap forward together.


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.
