Hermeneutic Chaos Press: Now Accepting Submissions for Milk Teeth, An Anthology

Written by Ella Peary | October 6, 2016

Milk Teeth is an anthology forthcoming from Hermeneutic Chaos Press, an independent, queer-friendly, feminist press based in Australia. Eclectic and evocative, the work published by Hermeneutic Chaos Press questions the boundaries of awareness and thought, and its expression in language.

Right now, they are seeking submissions for their upcoming anthology, Milk Teeth, a collection of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and micro-essays inspired by childhood moments. They are looking for accounts of life’s ephemeral early days that endure through time, memories that continue to call the mind years later. They seek aesthetic expressions that employ powerful language and textured imagery to craft human experience—its quandaries and transformations—into art.

Hermeneutic Chaos Press is accepting submissions for Milk Teeth now through November 15. Poets may submit up to five poems. Fiction authors may submit up to three pieces, 2,000 words or fewer each. Flash fiction is accepted. Nonfiction writers and authors of micro-essays may submit up to two pieces, 1,500 words or fewer each. All submissions should be accompanied by a cover letter and a short, third-person biography. Hermeneutic Chaos Press accepts writing in all styles and genres, including hybrid forms and collaborative works. To get a sense of their style, you can read Hermeneutic Chaos Literary Journal online.

Authors who wish to submit to Milk Teeth may do so online, but not via post or email. Hermeneutic Chaos Press will consider reprints for publication in Milk Teeth; however, they ask that authors note previously published pieces in their submissions. They encourage simultaneous submissions, but ask that authors notify them immediately if their submissions are accepted elsewhere. Authors may submit up to two packets of work at a time, and then should wait for a reply. After receiving a response, submitting authors are welcome to send more pieces for consideration.
