Deadline: February 14
How do you call your loverboy?
Come here, loverboy.
And if he doesn't answer?
And if he still doesn't answer?
I simply say,
Baby, oh baby, my sweet baby, you're the one!
Oh, loverhuman, Barrelhouse thinks you are cute as hell! We have an open crush on you, tbh. And now we want your words about: crushes, infatuations, lustful obsessions, trysts, flings, dalliances, affaires de coeur, romances gone bad or awesome, and all the pop cultural hanky-panky you can dream up for a February blog series, POP Love!
Whose posters adorned your teenage bedroom walls?
Who do you wanna see shipped or slashed from Adventure Time? Bob’s Burgers? Breaking Bad? The Wire?
Does the name Luke Cage send you into drooling reverie? (yeah, us too.)
Are you still pissed that Andie didn’t end up with Duckie? Rewrite the ending as a sestina using the words: dork, pink, rich, asshole, Annie-Potts-is-a-fucking-goddess and prom.
Did you wish Mrs. Robinson would use your fresh young bod to slake her mid-life thirst? Write an essay about the implications and applications of being 16 and in love with someone thirty years older, fictional and morally suspect.
Write us a flash piece about taking one or all of the Orphan Black clones on a date and all the hilarious hi-jinx that could ensue!
What We Want:
Up to 3 poems
Fiction or nonfiction up to 1500 words
No previously published work.
