The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

COUNTERCLOCK Journal - Fiction (Go to Poetry)

Note: remove identifying information from manuscript for anonymous judging.

Our mission is, and always has been, to heal, destigmatize, and empower through the arts, both literary and visual; to explore the diversity, complexity, and resilience of the human experience.
We hope to give dimension to voices that are commonly oversimplified and oppressed; we wish to highlight the beauty in what clings to the soft underbelly of a narrative polished for the mainstream media. We love the quotidian, and we love to question it.

As in William Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury, time is an inevitable torrent — but we have the powerful ability to anchor ourselves in memory by living and reliving these experiences. COUNTERCLOCK is a platform to capture and uplift art so that these raw, authentic experiences can be considered, disseminated, and relived.

We’d like to be taught something we don’t know; we’re attracted to experimentation, innovation, and beauty. We would be honored to serve as a museum, gallery, and above all, home, for your story.
