Please be sure to read the About and Submission Guidelines sections found in the dropdown menu of The Flying Saucer Poetry Review for complete information regarding this literary journal and UFO artwork submissions.
The Flying Saucer Poetry Review is a quarterly, online literary journal devoted exclusively to poetry and artwork about the UFO phenomenon. We are looking for intriguing and enthralling writing and art that presents and attempts to process the seemingly inexplicable and leaves you unsure of what just happened, much like the UFO phenomenon itself. Unbounded creativity in the exploration and treatment of this subject matter is highly prized.
The Flying Saucer Poetry Review is looking for deeply absorbing, oddly hazy artwork that is dreamlike and bedeviling, conveying a sense of wonderment, the details and meaning of which are not clearly nor easily discernible. Think, seeing something that is difficult to understand and process, seen through the cognitive filter of disbelief; seen late at night through bleary, astonished, disbelieving eyes; seen immediately upon waking from a deep sleep, eyes and mind adjusting to a strange new sight, a strange or jolting new stimulus, something extraordinary and ephemeral unexpectedly thrust upon one’s consciousness; or remembering something seen through the fog of sleep or remembered from a dream. Images that seem to defy our parameters of explanation and faculties of reason, that impinge upon our sensibilities of a transparently knowable reality.
We are not looking for photography, line art, or anything with crisp visual definition. Think, pastels, acrylic & oil paints, watercolors and such, materials given to the blurring of defined lines, edges and visual definition, textured, color, shades of gray, black & white.
UFO Artwork Submission Guidelines
Submission of Unpublished Artwork
We accept submission of your original, unpublished artwork. We are not accepting artwork that has previously appeared in publication or that has already been selected by another publisher to appear in publication. Note: Self-published artwork is fine to submit.
You may submit one image of your artwork.
Artwork File Format Guidelines
We will accept only JPEG/JPG files for artwork uploaded through the submission portal. This format is ideal for presenting artwork on a website without bogging it down and will allow us to produce a quality print version (24-bit RGB) of the online literary journal. No TIFF files, convert them to JPEG. If you’re unsure how to do this, the following link to Adobe provides a good tutorial.
We do not necessarily anticipate encountering file size issues with JPEG, but if one arises we will let you know and work from there.
Please provide a description of the materials used to create your artwork.
Although not required, please include a short artist bio.
We look forward to reviewing your artwork!
