ABOUT THE PARAMANU PENTAQUARK
The Paramanu Pentaquark was founded in 2008 as a project of the Gothic Funk Nation, a Chicago-based arts collective. Conceiving the journal as a multi-media compilation of “gothic funk” art, literature, music, and more, the Nation published three issues in 2009 and 2010, featuring dozens of artists from around the world. The magazine ceased production when the Nation went on hiatus in 2011. It has been resurrected in Michigan by the Gothic Funk Press, releasing its first issue in five years on August 26th, 2016. You can view the fourth issue of The Paramanu Pentaquark here.
SUBMITTING TO THE PARAMANU PENTAQUARK
Submissions for the fifth issue of The Paramanu Pentaquark will be open through April 30, 2017.
The Paramanu Pentaquark features literature, visual art, music, and mixed media submitted as Images, Sounds, and Words. The journal accepts submissions created in a “gothic funk” style: experimental work featuring degrees of romanticism, darkness, depth, and swagger.
Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please notify us at once if you accept an offer of publication elsewhere.
Previously published work is fine, but please note this in the comments when you submit your work, and take care to honor the terms of your prior publication.
Gothic Funk Press will notify you of our decision in three months or less.
