Proximity Magazine — submissions call

I always have mixed feelings about posting an opportunity with no pay, but I figure you can decide for yourself if you want to submit or not. Can't hurt to know about an up and coming outlet. -Mia

I wanted to put something on your literary radar… I've been working with three other editors to create Proximity Magazine, a quarterly collection of true stories exploring place, space, and connections in the modern age. We'll publish our first issue in early 2014.

I wanted to ask if you might pass along our submission call (below) to your network of writers, photography friends, and other storytellers — and I'd be especially thrilled if you would consider submitting something of your own.
The theme of our first issue is "Morning" — we’re looking for true stories that capture "morning" in its literal, metaphorical, symbolic, or even spiritual sense. Essays, photography, sound portraits, video — all forms are welcome.

The submission form, additional details, and FAQs are on our website: www.proximitymagazine.org

Any questions, comments, etc, just let me know. And thank you for considering this!

All best,

Carrie

p.s. I also want to shamelessly plug our Facebook page. 🙂
