Gathering Storm - Fiction (Go to Poetry)



We are all addicted to conflict, which is what makes our hands turn the page. We want you to start with a bang and end with the reader finally taking their next breath. We want your submission to have an impact. Take us away from the known world for a few minutes and make us forget what we are doing.
?
The central idea for every submission should focus solely on one of the themes for that issue. Embrace the theme. Love the theme. Breathe the theme.

Most genres welcome (fantasy, horror, science fiction, steampunk, weird, Lovecraftian, sword & sorcery, etc.), the only rule being that it is new, original, weird, fun, scary, exciting, or another emotion that invokes something out of the reader.
