The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

FIYAH - Poetry (Go to Fiction)

Limited Demographic: writers from the African diaspora

What we want in speculative poetry is verse that struggles, reveals, instructs, comforts, and fights back. We are looking for weird, complex, honest and challenging work with a clear speculative element from Black authors.
