This magazine is looking for the in-depth authenticity of what the artist can create by dishing out their ideas and feelings. Our team is looking for a diverse spectrum of essays, prose, short fiction, art, poetry and more! We want pieces that will knock us to our feet — in a good way.
We consider poetry, art, fiction, photography, and other art forms.
For art and photography, consider submitting several works that hang together thematically, and please propose a title for the collection.
Please read the site first to see what kind of work we prefer. Also, please register at the site. Registration will allow you to upload and update your author picture and bio.
We typically respond quickly, often within a few days.

We don’t want to limit our readers; therefore, we don’t want to limit you. We know quality work when we experience it. We don’t mean to be coy, but you need to know that we’re not interested in making your art conform to some preconceived aesthetic. We’re neither presumptuous enough, nor pretentious enough, to proclaim what "won’t fit" before we even try it on. Send us your best. We have over 45,000 readers in 145 countries, and they are hungry for the best new writing.
Please make sure to read our submission guidelines.
Thurston Howl Publications is a small progressive publishing house in Lansing, Michigan. We have specialized in animal fiction and evocative literature.
The best way to appeal to any of our editors is to move them in a certain way. Your horror should terrify; your fantasy amaze; your erotica arouse; your political lit intrigue.
bedfellows is a thematic, philadelphia-based literary magazine that seeks to catalog contemporary discussions of desire & intimacy, with a particular focus on underrepresented & marginalized voices. we publish work that we feel subverts (or confronts) the stigmas that are often attached to sex-focused writing.
while bedfellows publishes exclusively sex, intimacy, & desire-themed work, please note that we are not interested in traditional erotica writing.
We aim to publish meaningful, thoughtful, and creative content.

Send us the work you're embarrassed about. Don't send us something you think we'll want. Send us something we need. Ditch the fantasies, be real.
Body Parts Magazine is an online literary magazine of horror, erotica, speculative fiction and dark fantasy. Each themed issue honors Eros and Thanatos, the Greek gods of libido and mortido—life and death. We celebrate the vast and various expressions of dreams and darkness, our primitive desires and urges, and seek to encounter—and embrace—those shadowy monsters who dwell in the dimly lit corners of human experience. Our boundaries are few and far between. We also accept art, photography, short essays and interviews about topics and people relevant to our themes.
Body Parts accepts well-written, thoughtfully structured dark and Gothic fiction (including fairy tales and mythology), horrotica (where elements of each genre occur naturally), exceptional genre fiction (NO fan fiction) and all combinations of the above. Response times can be lengthy so simultaneous submissions are welcome. Please email us to withdraw your work from consideration if it's placed in another publication. We do not accept book/game/music reviews. Read our issues and guidelines before submitting.
