Want to know if you’re work is a good fit? DON’T READ US (or listen or watch)!
(or at least, you don’t need to).
1: To writers, especially those special pulp fiction breed that can crank out the new and absurd as fast as they can read it, time is valuable.
And 2: – we want you to write like you, not us!
(“The first man to compare the cheeks of a young woman to a rose was obviously a poet; the first to repeat it was possibly an idiot.” – Salvador Dalí.)
The best way to do you is to – do it! Don’t spend too much time getting bogged down in everything else: all the ifs, ands, buts, the people saying ‘this is the best way to write’ – rules, rules, rules (tsk, tsk, tsk).
Think Worlds is about new worlds, new thoughts, the mood and mystery – the different, the out! Not Jane Austin politeness and astuteness.
Think Worlds celebrates the human ability to think up new worlds. We do anything speculative: anything that is not set in or of our normal world. It’s as simple, and as broad as that: Where in a non-speculative world, a man stuck on the top of a burning building could only get off by jumping down, by climbing down a ladder, or by being saved by a helicopter or fireman, in a Think Worlds story he could sprout wings, get beamed into a flying saucer, make a deal with the devil for his becoming fireproof, or turn into an insect.
Rather than send you to read what we’ve already published – which we don’t want to publish again anyway – why not take some things here that inspire us, and let them inspire you?
Here is The Collection: Images, thoughts, facts, clips, all illustrating the indefinable goal and mood of Think Worlds. To push us OUT! OUT OUT OUT! Find a picture, write a world about it (music or painting or story or what not). Send it in!
Don’t ever give us what we are – give us what we want to be! We hope you have fun.
We take music, artwork, anything. Make submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org addressed to our editor in chief Oluchi Nwoke.
