Submissions now open for “Philia / Phobia”


Submissions open 8/11/2019 and remain open until 12/31/2019 for issue 3.2, themed “Philia / Phobia.” Make us love your fear or fear your love–either way, we want to read your dark work!

Whether it be one or the other, or a combination of both, we want to read about abnormal love, undue inclinations, and extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something.

We won’t be publishing any pedophilia work.

We are looking for creative interpretations of this theme, and look forward to reading your words! Open to flash fiction, short story, creative nonfiction, essay / short criticism, and poetry.
