Succour call for submissions!

Succour journal is accepting submissions for Autumn/Winter issue, the theme is
Icons. So do send them any poetry, fiction and art you have floating about on that theme or create a new piece!

Succour is a great publication, its design and production are very high quality with very original material from talented writers and artists inside. You can pick up a copy in Books Upstairs or The Winding Stairs if you would like to read it first - below are the submission details.

Succour is the UK and Ireland's most exciting journal of new fiction, poetry and art. We have editors in London, Manchester, Brighton, Exeter and Dublin who are committed to seeking out and publishing the very best new writing.

We habitually set a title for upcoming issues, which we then ask contributors to respond to in their work. The theme for the Autumn/Winter 2008/2009 issue will be Icons. Potential contributors are invited to respond to the titles we suggest in as wilful or oblique a manner as they desire. Bear in mind that Succour is a journal that publishes original, ambitious writing, and tries to avoid anything clich├ęd or self-indulgent.

The Autumn/Winter 2008/9 issue is due for publication on 1 November 2008. Deadline for submissions is 20 August. Please send your work in Word or Rich Text format documents, with a limit of 3,500 words (fiction) or 250 lines (poetry), to new Dublin editor Christodoulos Makris at succourdublin@gmail.com.

If you are thinking about submitting your work, we strongly recommend that you read one or more of our back issues, to get a feel of how previous writers responded to the titles. In Dublin, Succour is available from Books Upstairs, The Winding Stair and the IFI Bookshop. You can also purchase copies of back issues or take out a subscription at www.succour.org.

The editors welcome comment and questions on any subject. We look forward to reading your work."
