Call for submission

For our 6th issue, we will curate a selection of work centered on wonder and curiosity.

Inspired by works from the likes of Helen Oyeyemi, Leslie Nneka Arimah, Lade Wosornu and Ken Liu, curious and wondrous works can appear in a variety of ways: nonfiction, fiction, essays, photo essays, illustrations, prose poems, free verse and newly invented forms; in unusual and splendid images and metaphor; through the bending of time, structure, and language. We hope this theme welcomes you to dive into the wonder of the human experience, and we are open to broad interpretations of what wonder and curiosity mean within your own work.

We are open to all styles and themes and seek to publish voices from diverse perspectives. We are also open to hybrid work, uncategorized writing, artwork, illustrations and photography.

Work must be previously unpublished; this includes personal blogs/websites and social media.

We encourage simultaneous submissions but request that this be noted in your cover letter. Your cover letter should include a brief bio of yourself.

Submit work in any of these categories:

Poetry: 2-4 poems. Submissions should include work in one file in .docx or pdf

Fiction: 4000 word limit. Submissions should include work in one file in .docx or pdf

Non-fiction: 4000 word limit. Submissions should include work in one file in .docx or pdf

Comics: 4 page submission limit.

Visual art: Send low resolution images, if accepted, higher resolution will be requested.

Submission deadline is May 10th 2021.
