The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Crab Fat Literary Magazine - Fiction (Go to Poetry)



Description
rab Fat is interested in brutal honesty and authenticity. Don’t be afraid to use real language. Crab Fat is not interested in robotic academic language; frank language is always the best, even if that means using profanity and non-standard English. Break away from traditional structures and mainstream ideologies. Emotive writing is most important. We love well done second person POV in short fiction, and poetry with scientific language & outer space imagery, and prose that traverses the galaxy and reminds us that humanity is but a small part of the infinite unknown. We want poems about Batman & Joker & Gotham City. We want unique expressions of gender & gender neutral pronouns & mock interviews with dead celebrities & prose poetry & cross-genre experimental work. Use words as weapons, allow raw emotion to bleed into the work. Crab Fat wants your anger, your love, your disappointment, your peaks, your valleys, & above all, your best work.
