Burner Magazine Call for Submissions

Share |

Have you checked out Burner magazine? You'll want to. The editors describe the magazine as, "that girl. She's witty, pretty, and doesn't dumb herself down. By day, she's a kindergarten teacher and by night, dances gogo." You might also consider submitting your work for their March 1st magazine. The issue's theme will be music, and Burner is interested in "science, art, truth, conspiracies, naturalism, cyborgs, music, beauty, sex, and everything in between…."

Burner Magazine's call for submissions:

Burner contributors' work gets your blood pumping, heart racing, and induces literary, musical, visual crushes. You don't need to be of the fairer sex to contribute, nor should your submission necessarily have anything to do with women's interests or issues. We're not ruling that out; we're not ruling anything out. The Burner woman, after all, could just as well be a man. (An angel-faced, Rimbaud-spouting, great haircut kind of man who maybe-probably listens to The Libertines, but a man all the same.)

Burner Issue 03, set for release March 1, 2011, will be MUSIC themed. We're interested in science, art, truth, conspiracies, naturalism, cyborgs, music, beauty, sex, and everything in between, so long as you in some way, shape or form relate it back to MUSIC: your most powerful experiences with it, how you interact with it on a daily basis, the day you heard the first song that broke your heart — go wild, dearest contributor, these choices are yours to make. We will, however, toss your submission into the proverbial wastebasket faster than you can say 'Exile on Main Street' if it even remotely resembles the uninspired and pretentious academia which so bored us to death we had to create our own magazine.

It's pretty simple, really: send us your guts on a page (not always literally, please and thank you) and you'll probably hear back from us. Send us something that you'd give a professor and you probably won't.

For Issue 03, we're looking for you crazy, beautiful Burner girls and boys to send us your most glorious, inspired, heartbreaking, and most importantly music-related work to us at burnermag @ by no later than January 18, 2011.

Poetry: 3-5 poems that you feel fit the Burner Magazine ethos. Please attach all poems in a single document with full formatting, and include the word "POETRY" in the subject line.

Short fiction/non-fiction: Submissions of short fiction and non-fiction should be limited 500-1000 words and attached in a single document. Include the words "FICTION" or "NON-FICTION" in the subject line.

Photography/Visual Art: We need your most incendiary and inspiring visual works to bring our issue to life. Please send us high-resolution images and include the word "PHOTO" in the subject line.

Music: We'd love to hear from all you bands, producers and music lovers! If we absolutely adore it, we'll find a way to slip in audio files and music-related write-ups. Please ensure the word "MUSIC" is included in the subject line.

Gak: Have you been working on something that you feel is right up Burner's alley but doesn't fit into any of the above categories? Send it anyways! Include the word "GAK" in the subject line.
