The Odd Magazine calls for Submissions!

The wait’s over!
The Odd Magazine calls for SUBMISSIONS for Oddity#1(that’s what we call our issues!)
Here’s what we’ll expect from you:

(1) Flash Fiction – 500 words max. in .doc and .docx formats only – attachment. only 1 piece per submission.

(2) Poetry – 10 lines in .doc/.docx format, up to 3 in each submission, as attachment

(3) Art and Photography – up to 3 jpgs only with captions for each image

(4) Logo design: Theme – Sleepwalker’s Club : 3 options jpgs only as attachments
Sleepwalker’s Club is an organization that celebrates Sleepwalking and the thin line between dream and really. Please note that this is a completely fictitious organization and any resemblance to the existing is surely coincidential and unintended. You are create logo designs (up to 3 options allowed in one submission) for the organization, treating it as an institution/corporate house. For an idea about what good logos are made of, take a quick trip of www.stocklogos.com.

(5) Random/Radicle: Anything that doesn’t fit into the above: videos, mixed media work, you name it. For videos, only .wmv files accepted, text and artwork as above.

Deadline: April 30, 2012

Mail all your submissions to: theoddmagazine@gmail.com.
Your subject line should read: (Flash Fiction/Poetry/Art/Photography/Logo Design/Random), (Your Name)
The Body should contain a 2 line bio with your web link, if any. (ONLY 2 LINES)
Submit text as .doc/.docx, art as jpgs, videos in .wmv formats as attachments. Wrong formats will be summarily rejected. The Odd Magazine does not take any responsibility for image phishing. You may include a watermark on your artwork for your protection.

Please note: –
– The overriding theme for ALL submissions is the Postmodern. The submission will be judged on lateral creativity. Read the absurd, fantastic, surrealism, magic-realism and more. An approach that cuts through conventional morality, causality, rationale and logic. We believe life is non-linear and fickle. Invectives are allowed as long as the blogger doesn’t evict us for it. So try camouflage. Let it flow – the rage, the meaninglessness, the pent-up energy. For some references, google up the 60s Beat Movement, Bands like The Credence Clearwater Revival, Allen Ginsberg, Psychedelic Drugs, Aldous Huxley, Rise of Cubism by Pablo Picasso. You’ll get the drift.

– The Odd Magazine offers no remuneration to contributors at present.

– The get back time is 2 weeks or more. Judging by the volume of submissions, we may some submissions may be rolled over to the next issue. The contributor will be duly notified.

– We do not encourage already published content in any form. Simultaneous submissions are accepted provided you inform us beforehand and in case of getting selected elsewhere, well before time. Your cooperation in this case will be much appreciated.

– We will not have any ‘fixed’ categories. The categories may/will change with each ‘Oddit (Issue). You will be kept updated.

Questions? Post it here, or the fan page or write to theoddmagazine@gmail.com..However, we would appreciate if you post queries publicly as it is likely to help all readers and interested contributors.

That’s about it, for now. Will get back here in case of any updates.
Get cracking!

Be Odd. Very Odd.
– Team Odd
