Speculative City - Nonfiction (Fiction) (Poetry)

Note: may not reply in case of rejection.

Speculative City embraces the motivations of speculative fiction and integrates them into a focus of setting: the city. Cities instinctively draw marginalized individuals aspiring to create communities. Speculative City endeavors to elevate the voices of these communities through literary works that explore the potentials of their lived experience through the frame of science fiction, fantasy, and magical realism.

Speculative City first found inspiration in Yevgeny Zamyatin’s novel We. We features a city enshrouded by a glass wall, a city that is monitored and controlled. Rather than acting as a veil to contain and limit, Speculative City looks to magnify exchanges, particularly of the unheard and invisible, in dense cityscapes. In this magnification, the magazine invites introspection, questioning, and confrontation of prevailing ideas and beliefs.

We call for those curious and laboring to envision altered realities.
