We look for well-crafted, thoughtful, and thought-provoking writing and visual art that examines, interprets, and redefines the full spectrum of life, past and present, in the Midwest. The Midwest is the region of the north central United States that includes the Great Lakes area and the upper Mississippi River valley (according to the U.S. Census Bureau, the Midwest is comprised of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, and Missouri). Of course, the Midwest is also a state of mind.

Revise your work, proofread, and be professional, patient, and persistent.

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.

CAGIBI is invested in sharing the universal human experiences to be found in works of prose and poetry set within places unfamiliar to readers; thus, our expressed interest in international—or world—literature, and works in translation. CAGIBI is versatile in its purpose and mission to readers and writers. The journal concerns literature in which character conflict, ultimately story, is tied to place.

We’re particularly interested in themes of healing and reclaiming, family and found family, communities and support systems, and quite plainly, love. We invite you to invent, reinvent, experiment, and bend or break the rules. Give us your big and your small, your subtle poetry and your speculative fiction, your political and your personal, your faith, identity, love, loss, and humanity.

Our previous issues have featured works of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction that grapple with harsh realities of everything from social media to systemic oppression and inspire us to fight against these barriers.
