BANG! is a page on The New Guard literary review. On this page, we offer a unique look at work by a single author. Work is live on our site for a 30 day stretch, so that each BANG! author is showcased individually for 30 days. We have both invited contributors to BANG! and we also consider work that comes to us via this submission manager. It's a tremendous opportunity for writers to have their work seen online.
Work on our BANG! page is very short--flash-short--so that the pieces on BANG! serve as a kind of calling card for the author. Each BANG! is made up of three short pieces. BANG! pieces will not be published in The New Guard literary review. BANG! runs from the 20th to the 20th of every month.
Submit your work to be considered for BANG! here. Reading fee is $22.
All work on BANG! must be previously unpublished. We publish the work online in the interest of giving authors both publication and internet exposure. Submission period runs all year round.
Each monthly installment of BANG! is made up of three short pieces.
The hard and fasts:
Flash fiction: 500 words
Nonfiction flash: 500 words
Poetry short: 20 lines
SUBMIT THREE PIECES ONLY, all in one file. Submit a group of three pieces that represent your work and also function together. No images, please.
BANG! submissions can be in genre and in any combination. For example, submit two poems and an essay; three poems; three flash fiction pieces; two nonfiction and one fiction piece. Any combination, we just want three pieces total in each submission.
We look forward to reading your work.
