GS 4.2 Pre-orders & 2nd Annual Contest!

We’ve officially opened pre-orders for issue 4.2. This great issue will go to print soon and debut late June/early July– putting us, at the least, a month away from publication! Holy wow! Get your pre-order in today at the GIGANTIC SEQUINS store. Our extremely talented contributors in 4.2 are listed here.

Want to support Gigantic Sequins into the future? You should order a one- or two-year subscription! All subscriptions ordered, starting today, will come with 4.2 as the “current” issue, so you’ll be good to go, receiving your biannual copies of GS in the mail through next summer– or the summer after if you’re into a two-year deal.

We are so happy to announce our second annual contest judges and prize donors. The contest begins on June 1, and we will have explicit rules posted to this site closer to that date.

We’ll only be accepting submissions electronically through our submittable account. We are thrilled to have these great writers judge this year: Jericho Brown (poetry) Lauren Grodstein (flash fiction). We are also grateful to our prize donors. Kari ReedThe RumpusMIEL booksOut of Print Clothing, and Brazos Bookstore. Get excited! Meanwhile, start figuring out what poems/flash fiction pieces you want to send to us.

We’ll have more comprehensive details coming to you in our June newsletter and here! Check back soon for that! Meanwhile, here is our contest flyer, with the rundown. Isn’t it pretty?
