Issue #1: Pulling the Trigger

Shooter launches January 2015 with the theme of Pulling the Trigger: stories and poetry about springing into action, decisive moments, difficult decisions and the intersection of violence and creativity. More literally, stories might concern pivotal moments in war or crime, hunting excursions or gun accidents, dangerous showdowns or an act of euthanasia.

Writers and artists are invited to make submissions relevant to the theme by October 15th. All genres are welcome, but writing should be of a literary standard, with an engaging story and distinctive style. Poetry that inclines to the observational, rather than experimental, end of the spectrum is preferred. For information on how to submit, please visit the submissions page.
