BlueHouse is putting together our first issue, and we are still looking for work by emerging and established writers that frame the “I voice” in a new and exciting way! We love poetry, concrete poetry, lyric essay, creative non-fiction, flash and micro fiction and so much more!
Any questions? Please contact us.

Fictive Dream is open to submissions and, as always, we’re interested in short stories with a contemporary feel (500 – 2,500 words). We especially like stories that give an insight into the human condition; stories that focus on those moments that change people’s lives. They may be on any subject. They may be challenging, dramatic, playful, exhilarating or cryptic. Above all, they must be well-crafted and compelling.
Check out the Fictive Dream website here.

We’re looking forward to receiving your best work!

The All Those Things Left Unsaid project is currently open for submissions of letters, poems, stories, or other creative forms, on the topic of ‘Things left unsaid’. This could be secrets never before told, conversations you wish you had had, or anything else that fits the topic.
All submissions should be previously unpublished.
Prose pieces should be no longer than 1,000 words as an absolute maximum, preferably shorter.
Send one .doc or .docx attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org with the word ‘Submission’ in the email header.
Please explain briefly how the piece fits the brief of ‘Things left unsaid’. Authors will remain anonymous or be given a pseudonym, unless they explicitly request to be named, and only then if is legally safe to do so.
Anything published on the site – copyright remains with the author.
Jared can feel the tower blocks looming overhead, three concrete sentinels watching as he runs. He knows he has less than a minute before his pursuers are on him, but as he rounds the corner into the alley he stops, dead. There’s a strange canvas structure propped against the wall, a hand-made sign scrawled on a scrap of cardboard. Enter the Shadow Booth, it says, and you will never be the same again.
The Shadow Booth is back for its third volume, available now from our online store.

Enter the Shadow Booth and you will never be the same again…
