The theme for October 2022: OPEN. 
Submit a perspective for any inanimate object.
The deadline is September 30, 2022. 
Entries can be in any form.
But you must write them from the perspective of an inanimate object to be considered.


Submissions MUST include:
  • Email subject reads "Submission Object: _____"  Example (Object: Cell Phone), (Object: Tornado)
  • Contact information: mailing address or city/country and phone number to call (in case of email problems--it's happened before and I couldn't publish an author's manuscript)
  • Object must experience an event of some kind (a storm, a rejection, an injury, a happy moment, etc). 
  • POV: 1st person (I, my, mine, our, ours, we)

Short stories
  • Insert contact info on manuscript AND email
  • Use strong, vivid word choices to engage the sight, smell, hearing, touch and taste senses
  • Dialogue preferred but optional: dialogue between two or more objects
  • Margins (1.5"), single space lines, and indent paragraphs
  • I prefer active vs passive sentence structures  
  • Maximum word count: none

  • I prefer that lines do not begin with all capital letters
  • Submit up to three poems
  • Use poetry techniques (similes, metaphors, comparisons, onomatopoeia, alliteration, etc.)
  • Use proper spacing and punctuation
  • Maximum lines: 30 

Email Guidelines
  • Send submissions to:
  • Subject line reads: "Submission Object" (see above section submissions must include)
  • Acceptable file formats: doc, docx, pdf, rtf or inline
  • I prefer using the comments feature in Word but will use inline text in an email if you're unfamiliar with it.
  • Visit Issuu to see previous editions of Perspectives.

* Kindly leave sexual-related objects for another magazine
If you haven't contributed to previous issues, mention how you found the magazine.

Thank you for following the guidelines!
