Project Quote:
At Cuckoo Chronicle, we want to showcase the work of young writers and support emerging talent. We accept poetry, short fiction, flash fiction, excerpts from longer fiction (providing they make sense as a stand alone piece) and creative non-fiction (not reviews). We also love to receive audio and video, so we also accept songs, performances and films. BE CREATIVE!
