Opener Chapbooks are currently processing two flash fiction titles for publication

Tuesday, September 6, 2011

News coming very soon

Opener's Idea: A chapbook by four new writers: two poets and two flash fiction writers. Six poems by each poet. Three stories by each flash fiction writer.

News on the first set of writers Opener will be publishing over the coming months will be appearing on this page very, very shortly - super excited about it and can't wait to share the writers' work with the world.

We've been working with illustrators and visual artists over the summer months to make sure the finished chapbooks look luverly duverly.

For the time being, Opener are not considering submissions for publications so please keep a watchful eye on this page for news on future submissions.

Thanks very much
