How much of China do you know about? - Submit your works to Brush Talks

How much do you know abot China and how much of that can you put into creativity?

Brush Talks is a journal of creative nonfiction, photography, and occasional poetry related to China and they are currently open for submissions for their summer/fall issue.
All issues are free and available for download by the public on their website.

GUIDELINES:

  • -All submissions are to be directed via mail to submissions@brushtalks.com
  • -All work submitted should be sent as attachments to your e-mail. Written work can be in DOC, DOCX, ODF, RTF, or PDF format. In your e-mail, please briefly describe your piece and tell us which category you would like it to be considered for (see below). If your piece doesn’t fit a particular category, make one up and convince us why it’s important to be included.
     

CATEGORIES

  • -General Essays – Up to 5,000 words
  • -Travel Essays – Up to 5,000 words. Should be focused on a theme of sorts. In other words, we’re not looking for pieces that merely read as: “First I did this, and then I did that. We went here and then there.”
  • -Profiles – Up to 8,000 words. Profile a person or a place, from today or the past.
  • -Memoir – Up to 8,000 words. Tell us your story related to China. Should relate events of at least a decade ago (or else we’d categorize it under “General Essays”).
  • -Narrative Nonfiction – Up to 10,000 words. Tell us a story about an event in China. We realize that this may overlap a bit with “Profiles” but the major aspect of a piece in this category is that it centers around a defined event. The focus is the event (though strong characters and locations can play a role), written about in a compelling, even suspenseful, manner.
  • -Photographs – If you have photographs to submit with your writing for one of the above categories, please state this in your e-mail and include a contact sheet of thumbnails, but do not send the full files until asked to do so. If you have a collection of photographs on a theme or topic that you would like to submit, please query with a brief explanation of your project and a contact sheet (again, we ask that you not send large image files until asked to do so).
  • -Poems – Submit up to five poems at a time, none longer than about 500 words. Please limit submissions to two per year (one active submission per issue). Also please note: We are a journal of China, so all submissions, including poetry, must have some connection to China. (We have been getting a lot of poetry, in particular, on various other topics, and we regret that we cannot reply to such submissions.)

As we would like to support long-form nonfiction, all word counts are approximate. Some pieces simply need more “breathing room” so why quibble over arbitrary numbers? If you have work that does not fall within the stated limits, please query. If it’s what we’re looking for, we will publish it (perhaps in serial form, as one option).
