Breathe Fiyah

Limited Demographic: Black authors, including those from the Black diaspora and Black African authors

From editors DaVaun and Brent:

So many of us are navigating the rage James Baldwin knew would be a constant struggle. We must always give voice to that rage while refusing to let it destroy us. Breathe FIYAH invites submitting authors to share the work your spirit is moving you to create. The selections will allow the larger community to inhale stories from Black voices as we celebrate Black Speculative Fiction Month, and honor the paths laid down by those who came before us. We stand in remembrance of our countless kin who asked to breathe as they were ruthlessly cut down by an oppressive system that permeates nearly every facet of our existence.

This listing is permanently closed for submissions. This may mean one of several things:
  • It was always planned to be a limited-time project, such as a one-time anthology, and the limited-time submission window has ended.
  • The publisher has stated that they are permanently closed, or on hiatus with wording that makes it sound permanent.
  • The publication website is down in a way that appears to be permanent, and we haven't been able to find a new website for them.
  • The publication website is not down, but it appears to have been inactive for more than a year.
