Beehive Poets – A3 Review

Dear Beehive Poets Bradford,

We’d like to introduce your group to a new literary magazine, The A3 Review, and would like to encourage you to submit to our monthly writing contests.

The A3 – welcomes short stories, flash fiction, poetry, comics, graphic stories, a snippet of memoir, photographs, illustrations, and any combination of the above. The only restriction is a word-limit of 150 and images should fit well into an A6 panel.

Our upcoming themes include Dates and Dating, Silver Things, and an Open-Themed contest. Please visit our Submittable page here for more suggestions and inspiration, and do follow us on Twitter and Instagram, too. You can read pieces on our Instagram account from some of our back issues.

The stories and poems in our latest issue, Issue 6, take us from Sicily to Los Angeles via the Outer Hebrides. Oranges, fire, Lenin, kittiwakes and Dali’s Crucifixion are just some of the people and things glimpsed along the way.

The next deadline is the 24th of June. Please do spread the word amongst your members. And if you’d rather not hear from us again, please unsubscribe. We don’t want to spam anyone.

All the best,

Shaun Levin and KM Elkes
Editors, The A3 Review
