Read Fingers is seeking submissions from writers and especially from the Indian sub- continent to be published on February 14, 2015. They are looking for original and innovative writing, fiction that is entertaining and enlightening and that experiment with language and form, while steering clear of the urge to be gimmicky, formulaic or long winded.

For their first round of submissions, they invite submissions for the following topics: Season of Love, Personal/Political, Crime Fiction, and Poetry. Translations from other languages into English will also be considered. They accept excerpts from longer pieces, such as chapters from a novel, provided it stands alone as a complete work, we will not publish incomplete stories.

The Preferred word count can variable though; prose pieces have an upper limit of 6,000 words.

Deadline: December 31, 2014.
