Places to consider submitting

I bookmarked a few places I'm considering submitting, and thought that my writing friends might also be interested.

Feathertale Review (a Toronto-based literary review!) is seeking humorous short stories (up to 3500 words), poems, and quirky cartoons. Deadline for this year's review is May 25. Additional details here. Submissions by email or post. Paying market, but perhaps not by much.

Enter the Tofu Haiku contest for tofu-related prizes. Prizes include tofutti, magazine subscriptions, and membership in the Toronto Vegetarian Association. Additional details here. Deadline: May 21.

The Laundry List Art Collective is looking for "beautiful and strange" work from poets, writers, artists, and musicians. They're especially looking for innovative multi-media work. Current themes: First Concerts, Idioms, Recipes, and The Western and the Romance. I wrote a recipe poem in a recent writing group meeting, and am thinking of submitting that! Additional details here. According to places_writers, the deadline: May 15, and the payment: a copy of the project's book.

Enter the new Lies with Occasional Truth contest with your dystopian story (up to 2000 words) with a typical spam line as the (appropriate) title... such as "Urgent Request From Kenyan Bank Executive" or "Consolidate Your Debt". Additional details here. Deadline: June 8. Prize: publication and one issue of LWOT. Open to Canadian writers only.
