Tripod Magazine Issue 3

Mike Wilson who edited Issue 2 of Tripod Magazine says the theme for the next issue of the magazine is “Picture This.”

Submission Guidelines

  • All submissions must engage with the theme “Picture This.”
  • You may write specifically to the theme, or submit existing work that you feel is appropriate. We look forward to your ideas and interpretations of this theme.
  • We especially welcome submissions from those who live, work or have connection with the three cities.
  • Please submit your work typed on A4 paper, one side only, and 1.5 or double-spaced: please don’t use fonts which are elaborate, and please use black, not coloured ink. Include full contact details, including email address where possible, and a short biography of the writer.
  • Postal submissions only, please, to:

Tripod Magazine
c/o Bell Jar
Unit 4.3 Banks’ Mill Studios
71 Bridge Street
Derby DE1 3LB.

There have been recent changes to postal charges for A4 envelopes and other larger packages. Ensure you put enough postage on your submissions: any Royal Mail cards telling us there is postage to pay, and parcels to collect from the depot, will have to be discarded.

  • If you would like your manuscript returned to you, please enclose a large self-addressed envelope, again making sure it has sufficient return postage. Manuscripts cannot be returned at our expense.
  • Writers selected for Issue 3 will be awarded a prize at the following rates:

Poetry (up to 60 lines) — £50
Short Fiction (up to 3,000 words) — £200.

  • The closing date for submissions is September 14, 2007.
  • Tripod Issue 3 will be published at the end of October 2007.
