Pavlova: prose, poetry and images

Pavlova Press is calling for pavlova poems, images, cartoons and stories (fiction and nonfiction) that could become part of a pavlova-themed book. We are looking for work that surprises and delights us. As long as pavlova features somewhere or somehow, we are interested. Perhaps pavlova is a metaphor, or part of the inciting incident or the resolution. Perhaps it is deconstructed, reconstructed or overconstructed. Perhaps it features in a lyric essay or a pencil sketch, a painting or a micro. Perhaps it is the hero or the villain or the wallflower. Whether funny, sad, dramatic, evocative, mysterious, romantic, catastrophic, thrilling or life-changing put pavlova at the centre of the table this summer. The closing date for submissions is 5pm on 31 March 2020.

Submission Guidelines

You may enter up to five works of poems, images (including cartoons) or prose or a combination of these provided that each work complies as follows:

  • Work of poetry: no minimum lines, maximum length 50 lines
  • Work of prose: no minimum words, preferred length under 1000 words, with maximum length 2000 words
  • Images: can be paintings, graphic designs, photographs, cartoons, etc. submitted as jpeg files

How to submit

  • Written work should be typed in a plain legible font, 1.5 or double-spaced with 2.54cm margins.
  • Images should be submitted in the first instance as a jpeg file of a resolution that enables submission by email. If selected for publication, the designer will be required to submit the original.

Email your work(s) as an attachment (doc, docx or rtf for written work or jpeg for images) to submissions[at]pavlovapress.co.nz (replace [at] with @). NO pdfs please. Posted submissions will not be accepted.
