Transmission seeks best British Pulp Fiction


For its next, Transmission, is looking for the best — and most original — British Pulp Fiction.

“We want stories that are inspired by hard-boiled noirs, or rip-roaring adventures — we want to capture the glamour, romance and fun of the genre. We are not necessarily looking for ‘homages’ to Dashiell Hammett or James Ellroy, but short fiction that twists the conventions, and avoids obvious cliches,” the magazine’s editors say.

“We set up Transmission in 2004 in order to provide an outlet for Manchester’s up-and-coming writers and artists, and now three years later with rapid development of the magazine, we now accept short fiction and illustration from all over the U.K. Our aim is for the magazine to be approachable for writers and readers alike, joining original short fiction with writing guidance and interviews with some of today’s most exciting authors, to date we have featured interviews with Sarah Waters, Dave Eggers, A.L. Kennedy and Chuck Palahniuk.”

The deadline for Pulp submissions is 9th July 2007. For the rest of the guidelines, please see the Submissions page on Transmission’s website.
