MLR Press Call for Submissions: Mix Tape

MIXED TAPE – an anthology based on love songs

Okay, be honest…how many of you have made one? Have you had one given to them?  What? You don’t know what I’m talking about? Way back when, when you needed to tell that special someone how you felt instead of writing a note you put together a compilation cassette tape of music. Songs that reminded you of that special someone, songs that told them how you felt so you didn’t have to say it to their face (just in case they didn’t feel the same). MLR Press Executive Editor Kris Jacen is putting together a mixed tape of stories inspired by love songs (especially from the 1980s). So break out those cassette tapes, acid wash jeans and neon colors.

Stories will:

  • Range between 5 and 40k
  • Be inspired by a love song that plays a part in the story.
  • Flashbacks, paranormal, contemporary, historical (apparently the 80s counts),  all genres are welcome
  • Must abide by MLR submission guidelines

Stories due by March 15, 2013 to

Questions should be sent to Kris Jacen at
