Call is currently open until March 13, 2021 for issue #47: Pandemonium

General submission guidelines: For our special issue #47, Bombay Gin is composing a digital issue, meaning we are less limited by form than our print issues.

***Submissions that explore and engage in the call will be most likely to be accepted for publication***

See individual categories for specifics on poetry, cross-genre/prose, and multi-media artwork. Can’t pick a category? That’s okay, we’re a genre-mixing journal.

Pandemonia is the sustained tremor within our rooms, bodies, thoughts, and structures. It’s an object fallen from the shelf; an absent strum of touch. Bombay Gin Literary Journal is calling for submissions that unveil the pandemic’s hold on everyday life, both global and local to our bodies, the spaces newly empty. Who were you once, who are you now, and what is becoming?

Our 2020/2021 digital issue accepts submissions until March 13th. Send us your best quarantine quatrains, pandemic personal essays, and social distance sonnets. Show us your genre bending multi-media & written protest photos, tear gassed clothes, and BLM collages. Let’s assemble a body-archive of the pandemic, in all of its tragedies and hopes. Show us 2020 in art; we are listening.

*Simultaneous submissions are welcome, however, if your piece is accepted by another publication before ours, please let us know so we can withdraw it from our consideration.

*Rights to your piece remain your own. If your piece subsequently published, we ask that you note that its original publication was in Bombay Gin.

*Contributors will receive a complimentary copy of a magazine. We’re not able to offer monetary rewards at this time.
