Paris Lit Up n°3 – Call for submissions

Paris Lit Up n°3 – Call for submissions

Open from 1st February to 15th March 2015

New forms, bright colors, strange shapes. Paris Lit Up n°3 wants to get lost in your imagination. The third issue of our internationally celebrated magazine is officially open for submissions through our new submissions database. As before, we welcome your words, art, photos, critical thinking, interviews, essays, comics, cartoons, translations and academic tirades – even your collection of porcelain zebras would look great on our shelf. If it can be put on a page… we want it!

Just tell us something we haven’t heard before. Show us something we haven’t seen before. There are no rules or limits at this establishment. We don’t count your words or impose themes; surprise us with your creative prowess!

Deadline: 15th March 2015

For more information, please read the guidelines.
