Fiction and Poetry:
Our mission is to publish the finest LBCC short fiction (up to 1500 words) and poetry. For fiction we pay special attention to character-driven stories that examine the highs and lows of emotion and motivation from a broad variety of cultural and social perspectives. We are especially interested in more experimental narratives. Surprise us! There are no restrictions on subject, language or theme. For poetry, we aim to publish challenging, experimental and engaging works by poets here at LBCC.
Digital Art and Photography:
“66” is open to any form and any content when it comes to digital art and photography. As with poetry and fiction, we wish to publish visually striking images dealing with any subject or theme.
Fiction: Submit up to 2 stories.
Poetry: Submit up to three poems.
Photography and Art: Submit up to three works. Each should have a title. We strongly prefer .JPEGs as file extensions.
