[out of nothing] is taking open submissions for our upcoming online issue #4 and our first print anthology.

We are now open to submissions for our fourth online edition of the journal—with the theme, “In excess of all that is proper, shapely” — as well as for a special print anthology. As usual, we ask that you submit to us, at shelling.peanuts@gmail.com, your textual, aural, visual, poly/ambi-medial work, that we may publish it in both/either of these formats.

You would be well-advised to consult our earlier publications at [out of nothing] as a guide to the type of work we’re interested in: to supplement this understanding and ideally stimulate your thinking about a new piece made particularly to address the issues that consume, or rather, are consumed by us, we offer the following potential topics:

the vacuum, salvage / remainders, imaginary spaces possessed of imaginary dimensions, darkness / lightlessness, reduced or infinitesimal means, the exponential, self-abnegating symbols, the blank, obliteration, the inconsequential, refusal, the contentless / general contentlessness, the generic and / or undifferentiated and / or the contra-original, adhesive agents in search of clients to bind, none of the above or below

*We ask that you do not submit previously published work; we will draw from our own reserves for The Familiar.
