Saturday Submissions

Who knows what a submission call will bring? Better submit anyhow!

Two submissions calls for this Saturday: Neurodiversity (poetry) has about 47 days left and It Came From the Sea (horror) has about 17 days left (apologies for the short notice, but some reprints will be accepted).

 #71 – Spring 2021 – Neurodiversity 

This open call is for poetry, and specifically poetry submissions from people who fall under the umbrella of neurodiversity. Poems may be on any subject, in any style, and in any length, but the poet must be a person with neurological differences as the intention is to highlight a diverse and powerful community that is often marginalized. !* Also looking for cover art; please use Submittable *!

It Calls From the Sea 

An open call looking for scary stories involving the sea, the dangers below as well as the dangers above. Storm drains and murky creek beds are perfect sources of horror too [note from Coffee: Remember the Jersey Shore shark attacks of 1916? Some took place in Matawan Creek!]
