First Time

Qarrtsiluni, the literary blogzine I help out with as managing editor, is seeking submissions for its current theme, First Time. As the guest editors explain,

There’s a first time for everything. The obvious: first kiss, first love, first sex. The first day of school. Less obvious: first time around the block, first poem, first loss, first Christmas you remember. This first time for everything theme is wide open, so we don’t want to limit you with our suggestions. Surprise us!

We are looking for memoir and essay, for poetry, fiction, photography, artwork. For a form that perhaps we’d be seeing for the very first time.

This edition will run through the end of December, but submissions must be in by December 15, and should be no longer than 3,000 words. For additional guidelines, see here.
