Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Humana Obscura is an independent, bi-annual online literary magazine that seeks to publish new and emerging writers and artists. As our name suggests—“obscured human”—we focus on work where the human element is concealed but not entirely absent, aiming to revive the genre of nature-centric poetry while providing a platform for new voices.

Submissions Policy
Submissions must be accompanied by a brief cover letter and 50 to 100 word third-person bio. We accept simultaneous submissions, but we must be notified if a piece is accepted elsewhere. We will not accept previously unpublished work. Please do not submit more than once per genre per reading period. However, you may submit to more than one genre within one reading period. Additional submissions will not be read. While we ask that you please adhere to our reading periods, submissions received outside of our reading period will be considered for the next issue. We ask for first time North American rights for accepted pieces. Following publication, all rights revert back to the author. Please note that your work first appeared in Humana Obscura if it is reprinted elsewhere on the web or in print. At this time, we are not able to offer payment to our contributors for published works; however, we do our best to promote our writers/artists and their work, so be sure to subscribe and connect with us on Twitter (@humanaobscura) and Instagram (@humanaobscura).
