Submission call: Liminality magazine wants speculative poetry Due November 30, pays $10/poem

ical Google outlook Calls for Submissions For Writers

Liminality: A Magazine of Speculative Poetry is seeking poems in fantasy, sci-fi, horror, mythological, and related genres for its next quarterly issue. The editors write:

In anthropological terms, liminality is the midpoint of a ritual: the threshold where a person is no longer quite who they were, not yet who they might become. In between masks, what face might you have? What might you be in transit? Where will you go? Everything is possible in that moment; change is its own goal. Liminality is the space between. …

We’re looking for speculative literary poems that touch the heart as much as the head; poems of the liminal, the fluid, and the fantastic. We’d love to see work that shifts shape, refuses to be to be easily pinned down or categorised. We actively welcome diversity; we want to hear new as well as established voices. Tell us tales we thought we knew, the way only you can tell them. Give us new myths.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this submission call! I’ve sent them Tasting Character…the poem I blogged about. 🙂 Here’s hoping this is a good home for it! (crosses fingers)
