The Queen’s Head is now open for submissions of fiction, poetry and non-fiction for Issue #8!
We’re a Glasgow-based online illustrated zine looking to champion writers and artists with a love for the weird, unusual and unpredictable.
Speculative, magical realism, slipstream; call it what you will. If it blurs the boundaries between sci-fi, fantasy, horror and literary fiction, if it laughs in the face of convention, if it can teach reality to roll over and beg: we’re into it. We also love poetry that’s lyrical, sharp and experimental, and left-field non-fiction and culture commentary.
We also run black and white illustrations throughout each publication, and try to hand each issue over to one individual illustrator so they can have their merry way with it. Illustrations can be bespoke if you like, but don’t be shy about sending us pre-existing artwork, either. We consider the zine a showcase, and will run any series of illustrations that fit the weird, irreverent and experimental tone.
