Montana Mouthful seeks short fiction/nonfiction, poetry, and artwork/photography for its 9th issue, themed "Out of This World"

This is a broad theme, open to several interpretations. For instance, perhaps “out of this world” sparks ideas of sci-fi adventures, or an out-of-body experience, or artwork that portrays something extraordinary. But don’t forget that the phrase “out of this world” is also used to emphasize something extremely good or impressive.

Whichever direction the theme takes you, note that submissions for this issue will be open from November 2, 2020 - January 11, 2021. We aim to publish the “Out of This World” issue on March 15, 2021. Please review our submissions guidelines carefully. We do not accept any prose over 2,000 words nor poetry over 1,000 words.

Submissions are read and judged blindly, so please DO NOT put your name on the piece itself.

While it's stated on our Submittable page, on our Duotrope page, and on our website, we'd like to reiterate here: we are currently a non-paying market. If you'd like to help us raise more funds, we would appreciate it! Please check out our website and social media pages for ways and opportunities to do so. Thank you.

Good luck from the Montana Mouthful team!
