Online Entry Purchase one copy of Riptide from www.riptidejournal.co.uk/shop/ as confirmation of your entry fee – then email your story/poems to email@example.com Put Exetreme Imagination Entry in the subject line. (They will post a copy of the selected volume to entrants. In the event of a particular volume running out they will substitute with an alternative volume.)
In your email include a short biography if you wish. However, submissions will be judged anonymously, so stories and poems should be as an attachment (preferably a word doc) without inclusion of the writer’s name on the file.
Postal Entries: Address your entries to Riptide Editors, Dept of English, Queen’s Drive, University of Exeter, EX4 4QH with a cheque made payable to Riptide Journal for the volume of your choice.
Winners will be informed in August/September 2018 and invited to the festival in Exeter in October 2018.
* If your story or poem is selected for publication the Riptide Team support and advise new writers through the editing/publishing process. Unfortunately the editors cannot offer feedback on unpublished submissions.
