The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Curiouser Magazine - Fiction (Go to Poetry)



Description
So, send us your stories! We want to read your elegant and ugly. We want to pore over your terrifying, your elegiac. We want to ponder over your profound and your silly.

As stated, we’re looking for stories that excite, that break the boundary between real and unreal. Experimentation and surreal ways of looking at the world we live in will be looked upon fondly. Horror, magic realism, speculative fiction, science fiction and streams of consciousness are welcome – but they must be somewhat grounded in real life.
