CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Nanoomi.net and ReadBuild’s: The New Korea Files is accepting submissions from today to August 30th, 2011.

The New Korea Files is accepting essays, poetry, art, and list submissions for its first book of original English-language writing by blogging expatriates living in Korea. The theme for this book is Beyond Bulgogi, a theme that expat writers should certainly be able to write about. We ask for articles (between 1,000 and 2,500 words) on elements of Korea and Korean culture that writers feel should be known outside of Korea. The book will be published as an ebook, and then published as a paperback in both English and Korean.

Eligibility

Submissions will be accepted from English-language writers who currently live in Korea and blog about their experiences.

Submissions

We are looking for short essays, creative non-fiction, poetry pieces, art and lists that center around the theme Beyond Bulgogi.

Submissions should be emailed to book1@nanoomi.net with the subject line “BB Article Submission” or “BB Submission, other” by July 1st. Submissions must be attached as a Word .doc/.docx, .txt, .rtf, or .pdf file. Any submissions in other formats will not be considered. Please indicate how you wish your name to appear if your piece is selected for inclusion.

The New Korea Files assumes first-publication rights to selected pieces, to include printing in Seoul, South Korea and in the print-on-demand edition via online retailers. All other rights, including subsequent publication, are retained by the author.

Please be aware that TNKF will exercise editorial control over submissions.

Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, but if a submission is accepted by other publications, it must be withdrawn from The New Korea Files. Please contact TNKF via email immediately if a submission is accepted by another publication. Authors will be notified in July if their pieces have been chosen for inclusion / returned for rewrite / rejected for inclusion.

Articles: Works of up to 3,000 words will be considered, although we prefer shorter. Authors may submit any number of pieces for consideration.

Poetry, Art, etc.: Any number of pieces will be accepted for submission.

Please direct any questions to: Editors at – book1@nanoomi.net.

  1. Parts of this read like a copy of the Seoul Writers’ Call for Submissions. From http://seoulwriters.wordpress.com/2011/03/09/call-for-submissions-out-of-place/:

    We are looking for short fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry pieces that interpret the theme Out of Place. Submissions should be emailed to seoulwriters@gmail.com with the subject line “2011 Prose Submission” or “2011 Poetry Submission” by June 24th. Emails without that subject line may be missed and inadvertently not included in our consideration. Submissions must be attached as a Word .doc/.docx, .txt, .rtf, or .pdf file. Any submissions not in one of these formats will not be considered. The attached file’s name should be the same as the piece’s title to help avoid confusion. Please indicate how you wish your name to appear if your piece is selected for inclusion.
