Fantasy is seeking original fantasy and dark fantasy poems. All types of fantasy and dark fantasy are welcome. If you’re not sure whether your poem is fantasy (vs. horror or science fiction) go ahead and submit and let the editors decide.
We prefer shorter form poems with literary sensibilities which are evocative, emotionally resonant, and/or visually vibrant—in other words, poems which are viscerally impactful, and/or meaningful in some way. At the same time, we will not limit submissions to these parameters.
This listing is permanently closed for submissions. This may mean one of several things:
It was always planned to be a limited-time project, such as a one-time anthology, and the limited-time submission window has ended.
The publisher has stated that they are permanently closed, or on hiatus with wording that makes it sound permanent.
The publication website is down in a way that appears to be permanent, and we haven't been able to find a new website for them.
The publication website is not down, but it appears to have been inactive for more than a year.
