Defunct - Poetry (Go to Fiction)



Description
Note: one submission per type per submission period.

We want to read what you want to write. We want to be shown what’s unique about you.

Our mission is to celebrate what works, and discard what is no longer serving us. We want writing that is open, that explores, questions, and challenges. We want work that thinks about what it’s trying to do for others and for the world. We are excited about pieces that exemplify the spirit of nostalgia and curiosity, and especially pieces that go beyond that to explore our current moment. We are working to destroy the cis-heteronormative white-supremacist ableist patriarchy, and want writing that seeks to do that too.

We want more queer submissions! More translations from non-European languages! More genre fiction (by that we mean sci-fi, ecofabulism, fantasy, etc.)! We want more essays! We want more genre-bendy things!

Defunct is a celebration of what is over, & what isn’t yet. We’re mourning. We’re functioning. Let’s show the world what we want & need through what we’ve lost.

Punk’s not dead, punk’s not dead. We’re punk. We’re funky. We can be fancy when we want to. Our contributors bring back the dead, salvage the past, reveal their obsessions. We’re interested in questioning functional systems that no longer serve us, and broadcasting voices that have been told they don’t belong. Send us your manifestos, speculations, elegies, reincarnations, ars poeticas, recipes, & what we haven’t realized we want, yet. Enliven us.
