Hi, Brian.

Pub House Books is partnering with Seismic.Press to publish an international anthology of short-stories, essays, and novel excerpts. Deadline for submissions is 11:59pm EST on March 22, 2019. The anthology will be released in September. Guidelines here.
Gravitas Poetry is seeking original, unpublished poetry, for their May (Volume 18, Issue 02) print edition. Deadline: April 15, 2019. Guidelines here.
For submissions to either Pub House or Gravitas and for other submissions calls, go to their Submittable page here.

Miraculum by Steph Post
from Polis Books
Polis Books is looking for submissions for Both Sides – An Anthology of Border Noir“The border is a powerful place where countries collide. It’s a weird space of dreams, struggles, promises, lies, fear, and redemption. It’s a multicultural and bilingual space where people know that hustling to protect your loved ones or offer them a better life is a drive strong enough to blur ethical codes. Send a short pitch of about 100 words. Then the short stories themselves should be 5,000–7,000 words. Pays $75. 
Deadline: April 1, 2019, for your pitch. Then stories due by July 1. Guidelines here.

Mojo is the online literary journal of Wichita State University. “We’re dedicated to the revolution of literary spaces—the breaking of conventions, the exploration of provocation, the inclusion of all voices. Established, emerging, or identities often marginalized by our society’s narrative—we want your work.
“Bring on your off-the-wall, genre-mixing, mad-scientist-experimentation of the written word. Bring on your wildest imaginings of just how far you can push form, structure, the foundation of human moments and what it means to share them. Bring on your best. We don’t sacrifice quality for novelty. The best way to see what we’re interested in? Read our past issues.
“We accept fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction, published in the Fall and Spring. All selected work is considered for the annual edition of Mikrokosmos – our print journal, which has published for over fifty years, featuring work from William S. Burroughs, Charles Plymell, and William Stafford, among others.
Pays $15 U.S. 
Deadline: April 12, 2019. Guidelines here.

B Cubed Press is seeking fiction for an anthology: Tales from the Space Force. 
“Now that America has an official Space Force, we need to incorporate it into literature. What to do we want?  Camp? Satire? Bug Eyed Monsters? All good. We’ll do serious stories, too.  Mostly we want good stories. And if I am to confess, we want campy stories. We want the golden age of pulp to live again. Ask yourself, what would an American Space Force do? Will there be a space wall around the International Space Station? Will NASA and the Space Force get along?”
Length: 500–5,000 words. Pays $0.02/word and royalties; for flash pieces and poetry, an option of a flat $25 fee. 
Deadline: April 15, 2019. Guidelines here.
