For Everyday Genius, please send the weirdest thing you got. Please note that because Everyday Genius uses guest editors, response times may vary from a few hours to several months. Sorry about that.

For other full-length books, submissions are closed and will reopen again in 2013.
1. PROSE & POETRY. See the SWAY-FESTO.
2. Issues are released on a QUARTERLY BASIS (March, June, September, December).
3. eBooks are released on a BI-MONTHLY BASIS (April, June, August, October, etc…).
4. Despite our release schedule - SUBMISSIONS ARE ALWAYS OPEN.
5. POETRY WRITERS: as much as we appreciate the creative use of stanza, if you think the replication of your enjambments will be laborious, PLEASE REFRAIN. If you’re unsure, please, don’t hesitant to email us.
6. Since we’re primarily web-based, we would appreciate ALL SUBMISSIONS TO BE RICH TEXT FORMAT. Again - email us if you need further explanation.
7. The SUBJECT TITLE of your EMAILED SUBMISSION should imitate the following model:
NAME - GENRE - TITLE(i.e. LUCAS CELLER - POETRY - “THIS IS HOW I SUBMIT POETRY”)
8. Besides our provisional requirements, we are extremely liberal in regards to the content you submit. As proprietors of Futurism, we are drawn to intrepid progression that’s artistically fashioned to inspire. Show us a step we never dared to climb. Spin us a gear no one knew could even turn.
Thus is the definition of SWAY:
“Cause to move rhythmically backwards and forward or from side to side.”
Please send an image of an object, with accompanying text about it. For guidelines, you can see where the idea originated here and read some thoughts about the project here). And just do what you’d like with the premise, which is basically “object & story”.
We want writing that is “queer.” You don’t have to be queer, but if your writing takes a turn in the queer direction, that’s pretty cool AND WE WANNA SEE IT. But there are rules etc., but don’t worry, we’ve written them romantically so you won’t feel bad:
1. Represent experimental lit’s greatest truth: it is queer.
2. Don’t say “I AM GAY HEAR ME ROAR” or “THE STR8 MAN KEEPS US DOWN.” This is known and understood and therefore soooooo boring.
3. Gayng likes moments, stories, and ideas. Be truthful or not.
4. Also ignore everything and do whatever the fuck you want because we love you and we want to hear you sing.
5. Rent references are strictly forbidden.
