Dead Skunk haunts and stirs and turns heads. It is a dimension of voice-driven words and rebellious imagination. Dead Skunk is honest and unforgettable, a signature scent lingering between the trees long after the epilogue.

Submissions Policy
Dead Skunk wants your ink-smeared paragraphs and ripped journal pages. We want your sonnets and haikus and rock operas. Dead Skunk is about to raid your Twitter drafts and publish them on the cover of our first issue. ​ Dead Skunk is an independent online literary magazine edited by E. Samples and Suzanne Samples. We publish Fiction, CNF, Poetry, Flash Fiction, Flash CNF, and Hybrid/Experimental writing. The dead skunk may be in the middle of the road, but we're looking for lit left-of-center. Whether this is your first submission or you've had publications in hundreds of journals no one has ever heard of, we want to read your work. ​ If you aren’t sure which category fits best, submit to any of them; we will still read it. We will get back to you as soon as possible, but if you constantly bother us, it will just take us longer to read your actual work. Most submissions should be Times New Roman, 12 pt. font, double spaced, and edited as you see fit. Of course, if you're submitting a hybrid gem or have a unique way of formatting your poetry, go for it. We will do our best to preserve the integrity of the piece. All submissions are read anonymously. Do not put your name anywhere on your attached submission document. Simultaneous submissions are encouraged but please let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere. More specifics regarding submissions will be added closer to JULY 1, 2021, when we open for submissions for our Fall Issue.
