Writers! I have some nifty links for you to peruse.
Crab Fat is always accepting flash fiction, short stories, poetry, and visual art.Crab Fat is interested in honesty, no matter how brutal it is. Don’t be afraid to use real language. Crab Fat is not interested in robotic academic language; frank language is always the best, even if that means using profanity and non-standard English. Break away from traditional structures and mainstream ideologies. A good plot means something, but doesn’t always mean everything. Emotive writing is most important.
Storm Cellar, a literary journal of safety and danger, is now reading for its Summer ’15 issue. We seek surprising, aesthetically ambitious prose, poetry, and chimeras; we welcome visual art in any medium. Midwesterners and women are encouraged; we’re listening for under-represented voices. Send us your earthquakes, your codes, your scientist hearts in the dark.
