phren-Z is a quarterly online magazine celebrating the community of Santa Cruz writers. We are interested in seeing your best work: surprise us, delight us, make us shed a tear.
We accept and read submissions year-round from all adult (18 and over) writers from Santa Cruz County, both published and emerging. phren-Z accepts previously published work, as long as you hold the copyright. Simultaneous submissions are accepted: just let us know as soon as possible if a piece we are considering has been accepted elsewhere.
