The theme of our Fall 2020 edition is:

TOXIC

Submission period:  April 1 2020 – May 31 2020

Guest Editor for Poetry: Sarah Wetzel 

When, months ago, we chose the theme Toxic for our fall issue, we did not imagine COVID-19 breaking out all over the world and wreaking havoc with our health, heads, governments, and economies. We were thinking more along the lines of climate change and global warming, pollution. We were thinking of relationships.

There’s a lot of sh*t out there that is ugly, messy, radioactive, contagious. What will you do with it?

For our Toxic issue,  we welcome your previously unpublished stories, essays, poetry, graphic art, and genres that have no name. (We consider self-published work and work posted on internet venues and social media as previously published.)

  • Only one submission per reading period, please! Multiple submissions (including submissions to multiple genres) will be automatically disqualified.
  • We will consider simultaneous submissions but ask that you retract your work immediately if it is accepted for publication elsewhere.
  • If your work appears in our current or previous issue, we kindly ask that you refrain from submitting to our upcoming issue.
  • Please include a short bio (50 -75 words) with your submission.
  • We welcome unpublished translations of original work, provided the translator has obtained permission from the author. Please include the original poem/story in Word format.
  • We welcome work that challenges conventions of form, style, and content.
