Synapse Reading Series is looking to feature stimulating and captivating writing this November alongside established authors.

We are looking for a well-curated selection of your writing—pieces that fit with each other seamlessly, and collaborate to compliment each other. We’re accepting pieces from all genres and stages of development, as long as they portray your creative energy. We are looking to select a portion of your portfolio that amounts to about 7 minutes of reading time. Please do not submit any more than ten pages for consideration.

Please include your full name, contact information, and a short bio (less than 200 characters).

We prefer submissions in hardcopy, to our mailbox in the English Department at Concordia University (6th floor of the Library Building) Synapse No. 55.

If you cannot come in to submit a hardcopy, direct digital submissions and inquiries to:
synapse.concordia[@]gmail.com

Submission deadline is November 1st, 2011.
