Editorial Focus

Humana Obscura is looking for poetry that is accessible, prose that is poetic, and artwork of the natural world that will wow them. They seek work that is nuanced, raw, and imagistic with strong elements of the natural world or hints to the human-nature relationship. They tend to favor work that is unexpected, evocative, yet subtle, with a strong sense of place and strong imagery.
