Scoundrel Time is a nonprofit online literary journal launched in response to the 2016 U.S. presidential election. We publish creative works--fiction, essays, poetry, humor, music, and visual art -- that respond to the threats against freedom and democracy, people and cultures, posed by the current world/political situation. We believe stories told in any form can remind us of our humanity, encourage understanding, embrace empathy, and reject hate.
Please take a look at our site, and read what we've published so far. Note that we are not looking for venting or diatribes. We're interested in works that tell stories, in whatever form. Please see additional guidelines on our site from our fiction editor, Karen Bender, and our poetry editor, Daisy Fried. Fiction and poetry can be submitted via Submittable. All other genres (creative nonfiction, humor, music, and art) should be queried first by email.

Blakelight is a celebration and lamentation of the city, of human beauty lost to us. It is the acceptance that both ugly and beautiful make-up that which is human. The recognition of diversity and tolerance. At the heart of Blake’s symbolism was the city. The city with its revolutions, wars and woes. The urban, as a source of a new divinity and romanticism. Ginsberg in his Blake-light tragedy, his hallucinations and visions saw how the cosmopolitan- the real- can be an endless source of poetic inspiration.
We, at Blakelight, welcome all poetry and fiction submissions. There are no themes and no biases. We want the best of your imagination and are open to experimental, creative and provocative work. Whether you want to write a lyric or a post-modern masterpiece, we here at Blakelight, will assess your piece solely on its artistic value. We will only assess your work according to a beauty that will not be lost to us.
