Call for submissions:
Do you enjoy the city more than the countryside? Do you prefer trashy neon signs, crowded thoroughfares and junk markets to mountain vistas, glistening lakes and pastoral landscapes? Do you hate animals? Well, if you do, you’re in luck, because Ricepaper would like to hear from you! We invite all writers of Asian and mixed descent to participate in our spring 2008 issue about urban life, big city nights and big city problems. Previously unpublished poetry, comic strips and short fiction are most welcome, and should preferably get to us by Feb. 1, 2008.
Send your submissions to the editor, Herman Cheng:
PO Box 74174 Hillcrest RPO
$50 per page of poetry and illustration published
$100 per short story
