While it was always our aim to have a magazine every month, time just did not allow and we have now decided that it would be best to focus on 2-3 magazines a year, anthologies if you will so there will be more page space in this magazine.

And the best news? There is no theme so you are free to send us whatever your heart desires (or doesn’t, it’s up to you!)

Looking forward to getting back in the saddle and bringing the biggest and best issue yet to all of you good people.

Fiction: 3000 maximum.

Flash Fiction: 500 words max.

Poetry: 40 lines max

Visual Arts: No larger than A4 size. JPG format. Maximum of 6 images per submission. We will NOT accept entire albums to choose our favourites from so choose wisely and send!

In addition to your submission, please include a contributor’s profile of a few lines that we may use should we choose to publish your work. For examples refer to back issues.

As always, please send all submissions to Anna at minus9squared@gmail.com

EDIT: We are of course; always looking for front covers as well and the following are the submission guidelines for it:

We are looking for images with the following criteria:

1. A4 size.

2. Portrait format

3. The title of the magazine (Minus 9 Squared) somewhere on the body of the cover.

Issue Four Announcement

After an extended hiatus, Minus 9 Squared is back.

For said hiatus, we apologise and beg your pardon, there have been some personal issues to the forefront of our minds and our time was dedicated to them for some time and will continue to be so for the foreseeable future.

However, we are pleased to announce that the theme for Issue 4 of Minus 9 Squared (publication date TBA) is LIES. We struggled with a number of choices for themes this issue. We contemplated a number of different themes but decided that they ran a little too close to the previous themes whilst this one is a bit more precise.

Flash Fiction: 500 words max.

Poetry: 40 lines max

Visual Arts: No larger than A4 size. JPG format. Maximum of 6 images per submission. We will NOT accept entire albums to choose our favourites from so choose wisely and send!

Issue Two – Memory

Polling closed at midnight last night on the hunt for an Issue Two theme. The clear and comfortable winner was MEMORY with 54% of the overall votes.

.

So there it is: Theme Number Two, and as editor, I feel I have to overstate the importnace of this second issue. Issue One has performed so well that really Issue Two needs to be better again if we wish to continue this venture. So please, get all of your writings, artwork and whatnot into us, we want Issue Two to be bigger and better than One.

.

The magazine will be accepting the following categories:

.

Short Fiction: Short fiction no longer than 3000 words.

.

Flash Fiction: New Category. Short fiction no longer than 500 words, telling a condensed story. This new category is great for people who wish to write snippets. More than one of these may be accepted per writer if spacing allows.

.

Poetry: Poems of no more than 50 lines.

.

Visual Arts: Any form of visual artistry in one-two page spreads. Or text and visual like a couple of the submissions we had in Issue One.

.

Photography: Exactly as it says on the tin!

.

So there it is people, get creative and send us your work.

.

Closing Date For Submissions is April 30th.

EDIT: It has been pointed out to me via comment that I am an idiot, but in nicer terms than that! All submissions should be sent to Anna at   minus9squared@gmail.com
