ISSUE #18 is our LGBTQIA ISSUE! If you identify as a member of the LGBTQIA community, please send us your nerdiest poems and art!
POETRY: FreezeRay accepts previously unpublished work (and yes, that includes stuff on your blog/Facebook page/etc). If we do accept a poem that's up at one of your personal social media sites, we ask you to take it down from that site before publication. We will accept 1-5 poems, submitted in one .doc or .pdf file. Please do not put your name on the submission or in the title itself, as we will be reading these blind.
SUBJECT MATTER is simply anything to do with pop culture. TV, movies, comic books, video games, music...we're keeping this pretty broad because we geek out on everything and we keep it nerd real like that.
Simultaneous submissions are encouraged; we just ask that if you need to withdraw a poem or poems because of acceptance elsewhere, send a notice to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ART: If you have art/photography you feel fits the incredibly broad topic of popular culture (see above about subject matter), please send up to 6 pieces as .jpeg files (600 pixels wide at 72 dpi). Please upload your images as .zip file.
TURNAROUND: We are all about promptness and politeness at Casa del FreezeRay, but if you don't hear from us in 60 days from the submission deadline, please send an inquiry to email@example.com and we'll see what's what.
WE DO WANNA GET TO KNOW YOU: ...so feel free to put a short bio in your cover letter. And by short, we mean a paragraph. Short is sweet. If you want to be discovered on the webs, add your social media tags.
LEGAL STUFF AND MONEY STUFF:
1. We cannot pay you at this time, except with love and respect.
2. FreezeRay retains First Time Internet rights for all published works. All other rights revert to the author.
3. If a piece of yours is reprinted elsewhere, please give proper credit to FreezeRay for being the visionaries to first publish it. No, really.
