Arsenika - Fiction (Go to Poetry)

Arsenika is a quarterly journal of speculative poetry and flash fiction. Edited by S. Qiouyi Lu, Arsenika looks for gorgeous, emotional writing: poetry that shimmers with multiple layers of meaning, prose that explores and interrogates. From hard science fiction to the lightest of magical realism, Arsenika is not bound by genre, though we do prefer the speculative.
