What they want:
Arsenika is a quarterly journal of speculative poetry and flash fiction. Edited by S. Qiouyi Lu, Arsenika looks for gorgeous, emotional writing: poetry that shimmers with multiple layers of meaning, prose that explores and interrogates. From hard science fiction to the lightest of magical realism, Arsenika is not bound by genre, though we do prefer the speculative.

Last Shot Fired

What they want:
Imagine a war going so long that every last resource has been used up in the fight for survival, or a world that has taken extreme measures to end warfare and violence. In this anthology we want to explore what the idea “Last Shot Fired” means to you.

This could be about a spouse that has finally reached their breaking point and said that one thing that cascades the relationship into total chaos, or being against the wall against overwhelming odds with almost no resources or backup, what imagery is brought to your mind by this phrase?

We are looking for a wide variety of stories from almost every genre.
Deadline: April 30, 2017
Length: 2,000-6,000 words
Payment: $10 + ebook contributor copy
