Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library Journal Seeks Submissions

So It Goes: The Literary Journal of the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library is looking for submissions for its second annual issue. The theme this year is “Humor.”

The first issue (“Veterans Reclaim Armistice Day: Healing through the Humanities”) was released on Kurt Vonnegut’s birthday November 11th birthday, focused on the theme of “War and Peace.” Check it out:

We want your whimsy, levity, dark satire, political parody, topical tomfoolery, sarcastic spoofs, and wit.  Keep in mind that we are looking for your unique voice and not just an imitation of Vonnegut’s trademark, humorous humanism. Please submit your poetry, creative nonfiction, short fiction, original artwork, and/or photography related to the theme of humor.  We will accept new and previously published work (simultaneous submissions are allowed with notification) and will credit the original publisher for previously published works.  Submissions are limited to one work of prose (maximum 1500 words) or up to five poems, photographs, and/or works of art.  Please format with double space, use 12 point Times New Roman font, and include a cover letter with a brief biography.
