Submit

Submissions are currently open for our new weekly blog: The Castle and Issue Two.

Our Second Issue’s theme is Culture. We’re in a time where people’s cultures and heritages are under attack. We want to provide a platform where artists can openly talk about their culture, rather it’s good or bad. This is your time to show the world the real you without having to hold back or water yourself down. We want your poetry, prose, photography, and visual poetry that reflects your culture. While culture appreciation can be great, we want authentic experiences and pieces. Issue One contributors, yes you can submit to this issue, but new submissions will take priority because we want to be able to showcase as many writers as possible. Submissions for Issue Two will close March 31st, unless stated otherwise.

We do not accept any work that includes homophobia, ableism, transphobia, fatphobia, sexism, and/or racism. If sent any harmful pieces, you will be prevented from submitting to us again.

We do accept simultaneous pieces. We just ask that you send an email withdrawing your piece from us if accepted elsewhere.

We do not accept previously published work, unless previous publisher went dark. Pieces posted on social media or personal blogs are accepted.
