The Journal of Compressed Creative Arts

April 24, 2011 § 1 Comment


We don’t like to brag, but honestly, Brevity has a title with more, um, brevity, than The Journal of Compressed Creative Arts.  All the same, we welcome TJCCA to the world of small word count prose and wish them well:

The Journal of Compressed Creative Arts is currently accepting prose fiction and creative nonfiction submissions at this time. Our reading period ends on August 15, 2011. We publish (very) tiny, compressed prose creations of 600 words or less. We use Submishmash for all submissions. We value form, character, and words that fit to both. Experimentation is interesting. Experimentation for the sake of appearing experimental is less interesting. We like close reading and close writing. We like to feel what we read before we understand. Poetry submissions will be open on September 16, 2011.

We pay writers $50 per accepted piece and signed contract.

The readers for your submission include MFA in Creative Writing degree candidates at Rosemont College. For fiction & creative nonfiction prose (and we think of the prose poem as such), we have a word-count limit: 600. Word count alone doesn’t create compression, so we ask that you also consider why this piece works for a journal obsessed with what’s compressed.
