Klorofyl 6: Call for Submissions

Klorofyl, a digital magazine of literary and graphic art, invites entries for its sixth issue, themed ‘Family’. With our family issue, we want to take a fresh look at the sometimes complicated interconnections, relationships and journeys that we are a part of. We do not want to unpack the theme too much, because we want to be surprised by your interpretations, and treatments of it.

We publish poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, features and photography. Any direct or oblique interpretation of the theme in writing, sound or visual art is however welcome for consideration.  Compelling entries unrelated to theme may also be considered. Our editorial policy favors entries that are wholesome and evocative, yet illuminating and unflinching.  Our last issue, here, may give you a better idea of what our content is like. We require that submitted pieces be previously unpublished, and that written pieces be around or less than 1,000 words. If you plan a longer piece, or wish to write a feature that may require some research, please let us know  so that we can come to a conclusion about whether to proceed and to facilitate your work, if so.

Acceptance of your publication after satisfactory editorial review will grant us first and subsequent publication rights for your piece in Klorofyl Magazine, on our website, and through our social media channels. The copyright for the work itself stays with you.

We are offering an honorarium of $20 per accepted piece. We would prefer to send this honorarium via PayPal or Amazon gift cards (as PayPal accounts in Nigeria cannot receive payments, we can arrange a direct deposit of the equivalent amount at official rates).

Submission details
Please send in your entries by midnight (GMT) on October 18, 2016 to sub [at] Klorofyl ]dot] com, or through our contact page here. We will contact only those who are shortlisted (because of large submission volumes), with next steps by November 1, 2015. Editorial review in conjunction with the author will usually follow this shortlisting, and pieces deemed satisfactory at the end of the process will be published.

We look forward to reading, viewing and listening to your work, and continuing this conversation with you.

Thank you.
