Coffee Grinder logo with caption: The Grinder, brewing your submissions into something useful

Sick Lit Magazine - Fiction (Go to Poetry)



Description
IDENTITY: Tell me who are TODAY, in this moment, why you are that way, and get creative with it. Take this prompt and run with it. I want to read these submissions and feel like you just blew my freaking mind.
ADVERSITY: Show your character overcoming some serious adversity in 1,000 words or less. Never underestimate the power of beginning your story ‘en medias res.’ I can’t stress that enough.


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.
