Advertise for Fiction, Non-fiction, and Poetry with us (free):
Here at CJ, we know that sometimes it can be a bellyache to advertise your brand of fiction, nonfiction, or poetry calls. If you wish to list a call for submissions below the process is easy and unbiased. Please send your call, advertisement, or wanted poster via email@example.com. We'll review it, and, if it is a call for writing, we will post it as quick as we can. There's no fee or rigorous step-by-step process. That said, it's on you to deliver a title for your publication or contest, a website, and a deadline to interested writers, as well as information on how to submit or where to find out. Please keep your call to 100 words or so.

Cowboy Jamboree call for Fiction and Non
Current Call for Grit Lit: Rural and Revisionist Western Stories, Fiction or Non-: We need your best Harry Crews homage for our Fall 2017 issue "All We Need of Hell." Crews is one of our favorite authors, and we'll take any interpretation you have of grit lit that is "Crewsesque." We picked All We Need of Hell for the theme because we are at the 30th anniversary of its 1987 publication, but feel free to work in your favorite Crews stuff (Feast of Snakes is our favorite if we just had to pick). We'll have special articles, vintage pieces and Crews relevant interviews. Give us stories to put in this Celebration of The Knockout Artist that is Harry Crews. We dig short stories, creative non-fiction, flash fiction, vignettes/prose poetry, photography, and illustration. As always we like our stuff gritty and rough-edged in some way. See our website for past issues, submission guidelines, authors we dig, and style preferences: www.cowboyjamboreemagazine.com Deadline: 9/1/2017

Cowboy Jamboree Magazine: Current Call for Rural and Western Stories, Fiction or Non-: For our Spring 2017 issue our theme will be “The Family Strain.” “Strain” is one of our favorite words. It means to pull and push to the excess of strength, to overwhelm. A-course, the cowboy in us knows that strain may refer to the breed or stock or variety of animal or plant. Ain’t it the perfect word then to describe family: it’s our breed, our stock, our variety. At the same time, family has the power to push and pull and overwhelm. We invite rural and western stories that hit on this theme in some way. We dig short stories, creative non-fiction, flash fiction or vignettes, photography, and illustration. As always we like our stuff gritty and rough-edged in some way. See our website for submission guidelines and style preferences: www.cowboyjamboreemagazine.com Deadline: 3/15/2017

Cowboy Jamboree call for Fiction and Non
If your rural or western work is drownin' in its own sweat, it'd be perfect for the Fall 2016 Issue of Cowboy Jamboree, "With Alacrity!" We want stories, fiction or non, that get at it with a sense of urgency for this issue. Storm comin'? Fence down? Calf dyin'? Gun drawn? Whatever sense of urgency your rural or western story carries, we'd be interested in takin' a poke at it for our Fall issue. As always, we prefer writing with some rough edges and guts. Swearin' and killin' don't offend us. We nominate for Pushcart and Best of the Net. Email submissions to email@example.com in .doc, .docx, or .rtf formatting with 12 point font. We take flash fiction, short stories, creative nonfiction, artwork, photography, and vignettes.
Deadline: August 1, 2016
