Editorial Focus

Storm Cellar curates writing that is surprising, formally and affectively innovative, and represents the highest quality of various literary traditions. Each issue reflects the current tastes of the editorial team. It actively prefers authors in under-represented demographics, particularly Black and Indigenous, POC, LGBTIA+, gender-nonconforming, neuroatypical, disabled, fat, poor, and border-straddling writers. Storm Cellar also emphasizes works connected to its home in the American Midwest, and includes striking visual art.

Tips From the Editor

A full read of our genre-specific guidelines is always appreciated. Please do write stories that matter. Do go beyond elaborate anecdotes in your CNF. Do surprise us with the form, diction, manner, or subject of your poetry. Do create safety. Do create danger.
