Description

All writers are welcome, but we would love stories from self-identified QTPOC and BIPOC writers.
Second person narratives!
Surrealism, magical realism, fabulism, slipstream, anything that might be deemed unconventional.
Cross genre or genre-bending stories.

We accept only original works of speculative and literary fiction in English.
