At Metafore, we’re looking for poetry, fiction, & creative nonfiction that not only reflect the beauty of the superficial experience of the world but that also call forth the profundity — the beyondness — that can be found in all of life, if only
we open ourselves to it.
Metafore publishes writing that is progressive, that understands the political nature of personal narrative, & that honors diversity in all its expressions. While we graciously accept work meeting the highest of literary standards from writers of all backgrounds, we particularly yearn for works representing the perspectives
of the marginalized. We seek honest experimentalism that expresses each writer’s unique consciousness. We encourage rule breaking & genre bending & convention smashing; we’re suckers for hybrid & corrupted forms.
Most importantly, bring the eye of the modern-day mystic. Reveal the beauty
that exists in unexpected places. Find God in the alley dumpster. Leave our minds dripping with symbolism, metaphor & deep imagery, sensual & seductive detail, & maybe a touch of surrealism… Or ignore all this & do what you want.
