Scoundrel Time is a nonprofit online literary journal launched after the 2016 U.S. presidential election. It publishes fiction, essays, poetry, works in translation, humor, music, and visual art that engages with the threats against people, cultures, and landscapes posed by the current world situation. This theme is broadly interepreted, through the lens of story and its ability to remind people of their shared humanity.
Tips From the Editor
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.
