Word Weaver Press seeks submissions for  Glass & Gardens: Solarpunk Summers Anthology. "For this anthology, I want to see solarpunk summers. Show me futuristic stories that take place in summer, whether that involves a summer night in a rooftop garden, or characters adapting to extreme heat and weather, or an annual migration to cooler lands. Keep it planet-based (Earth or other), and optimistic. Solarpunk worlds aren’t necessarily utopias, but they definitely aren’t dystopias." 
Payment determined by Kickstarter success; $10 minimum. 
Deadline November 15, 2017. Submision guidelines here.
Upcoming: Baba Yaga anthology. Length: 7,500 – 20,000 words. Pays $50 Open for submissions January 1 – March 1 2018

Hey, Brian.
I'm writing on behalf of Vallum: Contemporary Poetry, a Montreal-based literary magazine. We're looking to get the word out about our latest call for submissions:
 Call for Issue 15.1 - "Forgetting"
 Our minds are like labyrinths, we remember, we forget. Sometimes, the past is the hardest thing we have to confront. Forgetting and letting go of what haunts us is often an impossible task, but something we must go through in order to find any kind of resolution. In other forms, forgetting can be a curse, like struggling with Alzheimer’s or misplacing one’s possessions. How does "Forgetting" figure in your lives and in your poems?
The editors at Vallum are committed to enriching and continuing the tradition of poetry in the present day. We welcome submissions that deepen our understanding of what poetry is and can be. We encourage Indigenous writers, writers of colour, gender non-conforming writers, differently abled writers, LGBTQ writers, writers with mental or physical illnesses, and writers who are otherwise affected by structural inequality to submit their work for consideration.
Send us your best poems! More information here.
Deadline: November 15, 2017
