Popshot Magazine

Whilst browsing in WHSmith the other day I came across Popshot Magazine for the first time. It’s a well-presented, quality magazine containing poetry, short stories and illustrations. And best of all, anyone can submit work!

Popshot describes itself as “an illustrated literary magazine that publishes short stories, flash fiction, and poetry from the literary new blood”. On the website are examples of pieces that have previously been published.

Popshot is published twice a year in April and October. There are no specific writers’ guidelines on the website and the next submission period opens on the 1st December 2015. Potential contributors are asked to sign up to a mailing list in order to receive details about this next submission period.  Probably worth doing if the magazine appeals to you.

Popshot is also looking out for illustrators.

    Well spotted, Sally. Makes a change from fiction markets closing.

    Thanks for this, Sally. I’m always on the lookout for ‘literary’ short story outlets, so I’ll have a look at their website.

    Thanks, Sally.

    I couldn’t see any mention of payment – do you know if they do pay?

      I don’t know, Patsy. I haven’t submitted anything to them.

    Thanks for this, Sally. I saw Popshot magazine mentioned somewhere else but I didn’t investigate further because the name made me think it was a teenage music mag!
    I’ve signed up to their mailing list.

      It does sound like a teenage magazine, Linda, but it’s definitely not.

    Thanks for highlighting this. I’ll definitely take a look.

    Not heard of this one Sally, it sounds like it’s a teenage magazine. I’ll be sure to check our WH Smith tomorrow. Thank you for sharing.

    Thanks, Sally. I didn’t know about this magazine, but I’ll be watching out for it now.

    Thanks for this, Sally. I’ve noted the deadline and the url of the mag’s website.
