Riddle Fence call for submissions

Heard the call — the Riddle Fence call for submissions? Our current deadline for submissions is December 10, 2010.

So we publish the best in Canada.

Riddle Fence is currently considering submissions of previously unpublished fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, and artwork for its eighth issue.

Please send no more than 1 piece of prose (maximum 5,000 words) OR 3 pieces of artwork (300 dpi minimum). We pay $30 per printed page for prose and $30 per image for artwork (plus a copy of the issue in which your work appears) for first Canadian serial rights.

But wait! There’s more! Riddle Fence is scouring the land – ooh, mind the steel wool there – for more Fakelore … that’s right, sweet, delicious, ridiculous, cut-throat Fakelore. Coined in 1950 by American folklorist Richard M. Dorson, the term ‘fakelore’ describes inauthentic, manufactured folklore presenting itself as genuine. The term can refer to folklore that is re-worked and modified for modern tastes. Riddle Fence invites you to send us your Fakelore finds or creations. Submissions will be judged by the Riddle Fence Editorial Board, and some of the best will be published in issue #8. Fakelore visual art format: jpeg or tiff, 300 dpi. Minimum image dimensions: 5 x 7 inches. Deadline: December 10, 2010.

Please submit by email to the genre-specific addresses below






or by post (and include a self-addressed stamped envelope or sufficient IRC postage in the case of submissions from outside Canada):
