Breath & Shadow accepts work only from people with disabilities. We use the term "disability" broadly to encompass anyone with a physical, mental, emotional, cognitive, or sensory impairment that significantly affects one or more major life functions.

Fiction: Any genre, any subject matter, including, but not limited to, "non-genre"/realism, magical realism, fantasy, mystery, science fiction, slipstream, suspense, experimental, and humor. 3000-word maximum.

Keep in mind our name and focus: breath and shadow. We're particularly seeking work that speaks to living, beingness, inspiration, imagination, spirit, expiration, endings, movement of time, shadow sides, hiddenness, mystery, darkness, and casting new light on your subject.
