Attention, Roller Derby scribes!

Oh, we love oddly theme magazine issues. MediaBistro's GalleyCat alerted us to the fact that the literary magazine Barrelhouse is seeking your best roller derby writing for an upcoming issue. Some details to bear in mind:

Barrelhouse wants: "Fiction, essays, poems, whatever you got. Barrelhouse will select one winner who will receive original art created by Cory Oberndorfer, a genuine roller derby artist. Finalists will be published in our Very Special Roller Derby Section, which will be included in our next print issue."

Barrelhouse will give: "The one we like best (aka, "The Winner") will recieve original artwork from Cory Oberndorfer, who creates (among other things) roller derby related art. Cory's piece will take it's inspiration from your work. This essentially means that you will become immortalized in two formats: your roller derby writing will appear in the pages of Barrelhouse, and will also be celebrated in or serve as inspiration for Cory's work. Which will also be the cover of the next issue of Barrelhouse. So essentially we're offering to make you a stone cold Mona Lisa style roller derby literary god or goddess whose roller derby writing will live on for all eternity. Other stuff that we like will appear in the Very Special Roller Derby Section, thus making it's authors a form of lower deities."

Barrelhouse asks: That your submission be spanking-new! "Sorry, no previously published work" will be accepted.
