Call for Submissions: Issue 3

typecast coverThe Type/Cast editorial collective is thrilled to announce a new call for submissions.

For our second issue submissions are open until midnight on Friday, 17 February 2017.

We’re looking for fiction, poetry and short nonfiction works.

This issue’s guest editor is Lauren Beukes.

“I’m excited to be guest-editing the next edition of Type/Cast, the Cape Town-based literary zine that publishes writing from the continent,” Lauren says. “I’m looking for stories that are ambitious, imaginative and local, especially from writers of colour. Genre is cool—think noir, speculative fiction, science fiction, remixes of magic and myth, but I also love straight-up realist fiction if it has something to say about who we are in the world.

Type/Cast has registered as a not-for-profit collective. I’m a strong advocate against doing unpaid work. However, I cut my fiction teeth writing stories for free for small literary zines. Type/Cast is non-commercial, doesn’t make any revenue and doesn’t claim any rights, apart from once-off publication in South Africa. This means writers get to have their work professionally edited and can use this as a stepping stone to sell the same piece elsewhere or use this publication as an introduction to their work in other markets.”

For full details on how to submit, please see our submissions page.

p.s. Don’t forget the read the FAQ too! It’s full of useful points…
