Theme: “Feral space”

Writers and artists are encouraged to explore the wild and transformative aspects of untouched spaces, from the natural world to the depths of human experience.

While we focus on poetry, we also accept visual art and short pieces of non-fiction (essays and memoirs) and fiction (flash, micro, and short stories).

We will consider speculative fiction.

Sequential art should be submitted under the “visual art” category.
