Nurture: A Literary Journal is a home for writing that values economy of language, precision of detail, a tender heart, and humor.
We have a soft spot for work that explores the complexities of care. Think: care work, paid and unpaid; childcare; elder care; parent/child relationships and those with siblings; care for friends and chosen family; self-care; care for plants and animals; digital manifestations of care; care for a community; care for a place; The City That Care Forgot.
At the same time, we like writing that’s prickly and a bit subversive—work that resists easy classification, that probes the absurd realities of being human, that complicates care and challenges convention about what it means to nurture.
Read the contract terms carefully for non-standard terms that may affect an author keeping control of their own work, such as transfer of copyright, committing to publication at time of submission, lack of time-based reversion of rights clause, etc
