July 15 Deadline for 2nd 'So It Goes' Vonnegut Journal

The editors of the second annual edition of the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library's literary journal, "So It Goes," are soliciting new and previously published work on a central theme of "humor." Poetry, prose, photography, and artwork may all be submitted.

Deadline for submissions is July 15, 2013. The printed publication will be released Nov. 9, 2013.

The library's inaugural edition, organized on a theme of "War and Peace," was previously reviewed on the Red Bull Rising blog.

According to press materials:
This year’s theme is humor. The library wants 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.
Submission guidelines include:
  • Both new and previously published works are acceptable.
  • Simultaneous submissions are allowed with notification.
  • Submissions are limited to one work of prose (maximum 1,500 words) or up to five poems, photographs and/or works of art.
  • Submitted materials will not be returned.
Read the complete submission rules and submit electronically here.

Send paper submissions, along with a self-addressed, stamped envelope (S.A.S.E.) with sufficient postage for response, to:
Vonnegut Library

340 N. Senate Ave.
Indianapolis, Ind. 46204.
Questions may be directed via e-mail to: soitgoes@vonnegutlibrary.org.
