Open Submissions CLOSED

Wow.  Thank you to everyone who submitted.  My inbox got inundated with enough work to fill 4 issues, but alas I only needed work for 2 issues.

I may do another open submissions in the future if the need arises.  Feel free to suggest your own work for future issues.  I do have the 2013 season planned out, but writers do back out from time to time so an alternate list is always needed.

Thank you again for the outpouring of submissions and making the last two issues of the year interesting.

Open Call for Submissions

Durable Goods is doing its first ever open call for submissions.  This is normally an invite only zine, but I thought I would give the opportunity to folks that I might not know.  If you have appeared in DG in any of the previous 75 issues then please refrain from submitting.  I am trying to not repeat writers too much if it can be helped.

Durable Goods takes very short poetry (no more than 20 short lines) or 130 word prose.  Each contributor will receive 10 copies for their contribution.  This zine is archived in 27 different libraries in the US, Canada, and the UK.  There is no payment for appearing in this zine.

There are only enough spots for 6 writers so please make your submissions count.  Submissions can be emailed to:

Thank you,
