Our current submission period is OPEN until January 3rd.
BANG OUT Volume XXIII: “Private Eyes” will be Saturday, January 18th at the Make Out Room in San Francisco.
Technology is propelling us into an age in which our ideas of privacy are changing drastically. All at once, Facebook is mining our personal lives for ad keywords, Google Glass allows breaches of privacy and also calls into question the very nature of subjectivity, and our National Security Agency interprets privacy as a privilege seemingly afforded to no one.
We invite submissions that explore the nature of privacy and/or ideas of self/other and ask questions about whether our private lives as we know them are threatened, or, already extinct.
Write a maximum of 1,000 words of fiction, poetry or essay on the theme “Private Eyes.” As always, we encourage interpretations of the theme that will surprise us.
Please only submit if you are available to read in San Francisco on Saturday, January 18th.
We will be accepting submissions until January 3rd.
Send submissions, attached as a Word document, to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We will contact you by email to let you know if your work has been accepted.
By submitting to BANG OUT, you are implying your availability to read on the specified date. We always prefer that you submit new or previously unpublished work, as reading in our series provides the opportunity for publication on our website and in our upcoming print journal.
