Hematopoiesis is the body's method of creating new blood cells. As a digital publication, our intention is to offer refuge to this process while disrupting dominant conversations on (dis)embodiment.

We come to you with questions: What is written, and being written, in the body and how do we express our physiology? How do we claim bodies through language, in a world that diminishes and erases so many bodies? How, like the continuous process of making new blood, do we create meaning in a world of loss & violence? What exists in the borderlands of body? 

We are now reading for ISSUE 3: SCARIFICATION. An excerpt from the call reads:

Skin-haunt.

A place where the wound has closed. A place where the wound won’t bleed even if you need it to.

Rip and scatter, roughed up by this rearrangement of cells. Languages of injury and repair. What happened here.

Deadline December 15th!

Belle Ombre publishes fiction, poetry, art & non-fiction, including essays, memoir, reportage, comedy, science, screenplays, scripts, biography and academic research.

Take a look at the site before submitting. We are open to any genre or style of writing, but we do tend to veer towards the literary. Don't be shy though – if it's good enough, we'll print it. We prefer original work, but if we think a piece can reach a new audience through us, then we're happy to republish it. We normally reply to submissions within four to six weeks.

Arkana is the journal of mysteries and marginalized voices. We seek and foster a sense of shared wonder by publishing inclusive art that asks questions, explores mystery, and works to make visible the marginalized, the overlooked, and those whose voices have been silenced.

Send us polished, thought-provoking literary work that follows our guidelines, using our Submittable page. We value work that uses voices we haven't heard before or haven't heard from enough, work that asks tough questions about the world and about what it means to be human, and work that blurs the boundaries of genre. We accept work from writers with MFA degrees and writers still in high school, writers from our home base in Arkansas to writers from the universe at large.

Mithila Review is an international speculative arts and culture magazine. We are open to original submissions as well as translations from around the world.

Along with original speculative fiction and poetry, we will host reviews, discussions and appreciations of stories, books, movies, television series, arts, comics, etc that explore interstitial spaces and marginal experience in the world we live today.

Please send us your best stories. As a new market in a part of the world where none exists, where nobody expects us to publish, we cannot afford to compromise on quality.

The personal is always political. We seek to publish fiction, poetry and art that reveal, resist or address various forms of tyrannies.

Brevity publishes well-known and emerging writers working in the extremely brief (750 words or less) essay form. We have featured work from two Pulitzer prize finalists, many NEA fellows, Pushcart winners, Best American authors, and writers from India, Egypt, Ireland, Spain, Malaysia, Qatar, and Japan. We have also featured numerous previously unpublished authors, and take a special joy in helping to launch a new literary career.

Everything is dialed up in a shorter piece. You need to move in and out of scene quickly, you need to introduce language, diction, and rhythm immediately, and you need to establish place, character, and conflict right away – usually in the first sentence. The first paragraph of a brief essay has to do what the first chapter of a memoir does.

We consider poetry and fiction in any style. Please limit poetry submissions to no more than five poems at a time and place all poems in a single document. We are interested in creative nonfiction (memoir and personal essay) with contemporary themes. No literary criticism. Though there is no specific word or page count for fiction or creative nonfiction, Blue Earth Review is most interested in works that are under 3,000 words.
