The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Brink - Fiction (Go to Poetry)

Through Submittable, we accept a variety of creative work from Nonfiction to Fiction, from Poetry to Translation, as well as hybrid work that falls into the cross-genre category of Evocations. We are looking for contributions that engage both the particular theme of each issue as well as the idea of being on the brink.
