Splinter Generation will be accepting submissions for only two more weeks and they want your writing.
The Splinter Generation is currently accepting submissions from writers who were born between 1973 and 1993 for an ongoing online generational literary compilation. We are looking for the best poetry, creative nonfiction and fiction these writers have to offer. In particular, we’re looking for work that captures what it is to be a member of our generation. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis, but the reading period will end on November 1.
We have undertaken this project again because our generation — and literature in general — is facing a challenging moment in history. While the problems of the world may often seem insurmountable, we believe there is still power in literature. Our voices still matter and we intend to find the strongest voices of our generation. Many mainstream publishers no longer have the resources or the will to publish important, emerging writers. But we do. And we will, because this is a time when we need fresh literature to make sense of our world.
Whether you have previously published or not, we want to hear something fresh.
We know this may mean thinking outside of what “literature”Â has generally come to mean. Because we love writing, we are seeking work that is based on the written word, but, in the spirit of our generation, the work may also (though it does not have to) use links, video, audio, or any other tools the internet has to offer. What we want is something powerful and something that embodies what it means to be a member of this generation. Send us work that will wrap us in a story while making us think deeply. In short, send us your best work that represents who you are and advances what literature can be online.
