Tick, tick, tick… BOMB Magazine's 2011 Fiction Contest now open

BOMB Magazine is now accepting submissions for its fifth Fiction Contest. This year’s judge is Rivka Galchen, author of the novel Atmospheric Disturbances. The winner will receive $500 and publication in First Proof, BOMB’s literary supplement. The contest deadline is April 16, 2011.

Don’t know BOMB? We’re pleased to introduce you. A quarterly lit mag, BOMB Magazine was founded in 1981 and features interviews, original writing, and reviews.

Says the journal’s website:

BOMB was named after Wyndham Lewis’s Blast, a 1917 journal edited by artists and writers. Following in this tradition, BOMB’s editors are also all practitioners of the arts. BOMB was launched because its early editors saw a gap between the way art and literature were discussed and understood by those individuals outside the creative arts and those within the disciplines.

Full content details and submission instructions are here. And to learn more about the journal, check out BOMB’s website, back issues, and blog.
