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.

The Letters Page literary journal is published by the University of Nottingham School of English, and edited by writer in residence, Professor Jon McGregor. We’re interested in exploring what letter writing means to people - and has meant since writing was invented - in their literary cultures and their personal lives. We’ll be publishing essays, memoir, fiction, travelogue, reportage, poetry, criticism, interviews… any creative form of writing, so long as it comes to us framed as a letter.

• The letter should be handwritten on a single side of A4 (or your local equivalent), and sent in the post, with a return address on the back of the envelope. • You may include illustrations. • Enclose contact details on a separate sheet. A transcript may be requested. • The letter should be addressed to a notional ‘reader’ (and should balance the tone of address between the ‘collective’ reader of a journal and the ‘individual’ reader of a forwarded letter); the letter should not address or refer to the editor. • The letter should include some reference to the time/place of its writing and/or sending. • Your submission should be postmarked with a date no later than the stated deadline for submissions.

Moss is a venue for showcasing and supporting writers of the Pacific Northwest, with a special focus on emerging talent and a mission of celebrating and preserving the Northwest’s robust literary culture. Moss is published online three times annually, with each volume collected in an annual print anthology. “...where place-based writing is often a buzzword, the journal provides an in-depth examination into what it means for writing to be 'Northwestern.'” —Bill Carty, City Arts

We accept fiction and non-fiction submissions on a rolling basis; response time may vary based on the issue schedule. Though we will consider pieces of any length, we prefer submissions of at least 1,800 words; shorter pieces may be paid at a reduced rate. We are not accepting poetry at this time. Submissions are limited to current residents of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia and those with a substantial connection to the region. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, with the condition that you notify us immediately if your piece is accepted for publication elsewhere. Please send only one submission, attached as a Word document, to mosslit [at] gmail [dot] com. Moss pays $125 for each accepted piece. We buy First Serial Rights. There is no fee to submit.
