The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Adi - Fiction (Go to Poetry)



Description
We’re looking for short stories that examine lives impacted by policy and politics. This should be interpreted expansively and imaginatively. Please familiarize yourself with the range and spirit of our archives; Adi tends toward creative, experimental approaches to political writing, with a particular focus on those on the margins and in the global south. We’ve previously published fiction on ghosts in a post-fossil fuel world; love on opposing sides of a military crackdown; intervention through the eyes of a fugitive lion.

We’re not interested in the drearily righteous; we want stories that unearth new worlds, that plumb interior lives alongside external conflicts, that satirize and fantasize, that disturb, beguile, challenge, surprise, ignite.
