Blood Bath Literary Zine

Posted by Randi on Tuesday, May 1, 2018

What they want:
Debut issue theme (deadline August 1, 2018): Blood Bath Litzine is open for submissions of short fiction and poetry on the theme of bodies.  Bodies are sites of terror and desire; they can be politicised, policed and possessed, becoming either a haven of pleasure or a hellish prison of flesh. We want to read your weirdest, most innovative stories on bodies.

Experimental poetry or prose; we’ll do our best to print your original language or innovative typography.

Socially aware fiction. Stories that have something to say (or scream) about the modern world. Stories told through a feminist lens are always going to make us happy.

We particularly encourage submissions from people of colour, trans people, nonbinary people, women, femmes and other members of the LGBTQ community.

Genre fiction; though it has to contain an element of horror. We are interested in fantasy, science-fiction, erotica…as long as it has a dark edge.

* This market has themed issues, please check the website guidelines for current themes.
Length: Up to 2,500 words. Poetry up to 15 lines.
Payment: £10 per 1,000 words for prose, and £10 per poem
