Let’s gather momentum!

Welcome, fellow artist!

After last year’s amazing adventure, the time for our second anthology of home-brewed short stories, poetry and other creative texts has come! Our Pocket Universe #2 („momentum.“) will be published in May 2019 and we are currently looking for the crème de la crème of English fiction & beautiful black & white illustrations to create a Mood (TM).

If A) you’re a writer, have been waiting for this precise moment and have thousands of words and ideas you would like to share, please fill out the Writer’s Submission Form below. 
We can’t wait to read your words – both on „momentum.“ (Thematic Section) and on just about everything else (General Section)!

If B) you’re an artist and would like your art to be on our cover (full colour) or would like to fill 1 of 10 slots for black & white „momentum.“ illustrations that haunt the pages of our anthology, please fill out the Artist’s Submission Form below. 
We’re super excited to see what you come up with!

If C) you know somebody who might be interested in this project, please spread the word! The more textual and visual styles, genres, ideas and formats our Pocket Universe can encompass, the better!

Our deadline is February 12, 2019.

Writer’s Submission Form

What do you want your story/poem to be called?
Do you want to be published under your real name? If yes, just leave this section empty!
Do you have a writing-related blog or website that you would like our readers to know about?
Do you have a second writing-related blog or website that you would like our readers to know about?
Is there anything about your format you would definitely like us to pay attention to?
If your schedule allows, would you theoretically be willing to present and read your text at our launch party in the summer?
The ideal candidate for the position is a Word document written in Times New Roman, 11pt, with prose <3500 words and poetry <120 lines and called "Section_Last name_First name_Title", so, for example, "Thematic_Shakespeare_William_Sonnet 18". In the Scottish tradition, multiple submissions are absolutely allowed, "as long as you're not taking the piss". (No, but, honestly, for all that is good and holy: have mercy and spare us the horrors of pdfs).
How many words (prose)/ lines (poetry) does your masterpiece have?
How can we reach you?
