Uno Kudo Volume II: Naked - CALL FOR ENTRIES

We are excited to announce that we are moving ahead with a second volume to the book we put out at the end of last year.

Uno Kudo was received with so much enthusiasm that we have agreed to produce a second volume. This time we are having an open submission that will be judged by a panel of 7. The best written and visual pieces will be published in UK2 for a November release.

The theme is "naked". This can be interpreted however the artist feels. eg: vulnerability, openness, inhibition, emotional or physical.

Deadline for submissions is May 1 2012

All submissions will be cleared of any personal info before the judges see the materials leaving the artist the unique opportunity of having their work judged based purely on it's creative content and quality.

Markets: Fiction, Poetry, Nonfiction, Illustrated Stories and Comics, Artwork, and Photography
Genres: All
Length: under 1500 words
Multiple submissions: Accepted for artwork only.
Previously published: Yes. Please indicate.
Submission type: Email only

Submit materials to:

Please indicate on the subject line of your email if the content is poetry, a short story or art.

Artwork will be used both on it's own and to complement our literary pieces. Artwork that will accompany the literary pieces does not necessarily have to be related to the naked theme. The book is a square format but art may be used as an insert shot or a full bleed across a spread so submissions of any proportions are welcome.

We look to cover a wide range of styles and subject matter.
