The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

The Deadlands - Poetry (Go to Fiction)



Description
The Deadlands are a liminal space reached by a broad road and we are looking for the same diversity in our speculative poetry. We welcome the weird, the mythic, the interstitial, and the unclassifiable; we are as interested in the underworld and its denizens as we are in ghosts, grief, and history. We prefer the uncanny to the gross-out, although we do not shy from physical realities. Death may be personified or not as you please.

We are at home to the hauntological in a major way. We value boundary-crossing in style as well as subject and will consider both experimental and formal verse, although we are a hard sell on full-scale epic poetry; we would love to see bilingual or multilingual work. We are especially committed to the voices of marginalized poets. Please try us rather than self-reject! Whichever way you approach these ambiguous lands, we want to read what you find there.
