Crow & Cross Keys - Fiction (Poetry)



Description
We are looking for beautifully-written poetry, flash fiction and short stories with a speculative edge. In the tradition of oral folk tales, we want work that sounds as good when read aloud as it reads on the page. Send us writing that sings.

Crow & Cross Keys is open to everything dark and lovely.
