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!

We do place a special emphasis on writers or work connected, one way or another, to the American Midwest. We are always on lookout for vibrant visual art.

A full read of our genre-specific guidelines is always appreciated. Please do write stories that matter. Please do go beyond elaborate anecdotes in your CNF. Please do surprise us with the form, diction, manner, or subject of your poetry. Please do create safety. Please do create danger.

Virga is rain that takes some cloud down with it–precipitation with parachute.

Virga is also a poetry journal. Here, we hope to publish poems that take some of the sky down to the page.

Our tastes are eclectic, but we would like to see poems that demonstrate elegance, empathy, and experimentation. This is to say, we want content that is well-crafted, that pays reverent attention to detail; content that keeps humanity at its center; content that innovates.

To get a sense of what we like to publish, read a recent issue of Virga.

Blotterature's mission is to merge the creative academia with the underground, as there is value in both sides of the spectrum. We seek the nontraditional mixed with craft, detail, and process. Well-developed with an edge. Regionalism with a voice. Something with political intentions or just there to entertain. Thought-out. Thrilling. Intelligent.

Please read and follow all guidelines thoroughly. Take a look at back issues to get a feel for what we like.

In these times when the Earth and humanity seem so breakable, as if they might break each other, we search for answers in the air. What’s our next move? What did I just see on the news? What does this moment demand of me? Poets interpret their screens, sing to nature, and admonish us our selfishness. Califragile is a portrait of turning, questioning, stretching, stepping up.

We consider most topics, not violent, pornographic, or oppressive. We seek writing that's spare and economic while showing what’s possible with imagery. We prefer modern free verse over rhyming, metered work. But quality walks in on its own. Offer us something thrilling and unexpected. Have something to say, whether on the micro or macro level. Send us your poems that deepen the dialog.
