Call for Submissions/Snapdragon Poetry Competition

While my writers deliver their book reviews, I thought I'd post a couple  submission calls that were sent my way. Disclaimer: Just because I'm posting them here doesn't mean I'm endorsing them. As you always should, you should check them out before you submit.

Some Ways to Disappear is a biannual publication of new Photography and Literature, with no advertising or extraneous fluff.

Currently, Some Ways to Disappear is inviting photography and literary submissions, considering all styles, genres, and formats.

The first issue is due to be released on the 30th June 2010.

If you wish to submit any work please e-mail it directly to: somewaystodisappear[at]

Submissions should be no longer than 3000 words, and e-mailed as a word document or PDF. All styles, genres and formats considered.

The deadline for all submissions for the first issue is 30th April.
