RAMINGO! LA CULTURA COME NON TE L’ASPETTAVI
The editors of The Ramingo’s Porch have an open call for submissions of poems, short stories, book reviews, short essays and so on. “All that is made of words and thoughts is what we are searching for here at the The Ramingo’s Porch,”says co-editor Mendes Biondo, Italian poet and journalist.
Send your submissions in English. If they are written in your first language (other than English) they must be accompanied by translation into English. Deadline: October 18, 2017 for the upcoming and first issue. Submissions by email to firstname.lastname@example.org writing in the subject line the kind of submission and your surname. (For example: “Poetry Smith”).
Send your work as an attachment. You may include a bio of no more than fifty words.
This effort is a collaboration between Ramingo! Blog and American poet and writer, Dr. Marc Pietrzykowski of Pski’s Porch. “From one side a publisher based in the US, from the other one an international magazine about literature and culture based in Italy,” says Mendes.
All that you can expect from “The Ramingo’s Porch” is a place for creative minds, a magazine printed as a book (because we love the smell and the tenderness of paper!), a way to meet many other writers like you.
If you want to know more of what we like, start from thinking about the title of the magazine: “Ramingo” and “Porch”.
This magazine is the place for those who love to wander – physically and virtually – the world and its things. Be brave, be rovers and bring us many nuggets of writing. If you write free verse poems or anarchic essays or other kinds of interesting things you are welcome!
The other part is about the warmth of a house. Think of this magazine as a great family of funny people reading literature in a comfortable rocking chair with a cool sunset in front of us. So feel free to write as you really are and not as a fashionable trend told you to do.
Anyhow, if we decide to reject something you sent us, it’s because we don’t like it. But this does not mean that it is bad at all. It can work in another magazine or it can be edited, fixed and, then, published. This project is a work of love about writing and reading so try to submit your best (but also your worst… who knows?) to us.
Our warmest wishes to all with this new publication that promises colorful and diverse pleasures.
