 We have closed submissions for our second issue, but are currently commissioning content for 2021. We recommend that you read our first issue, available here, to get a sense of what we are looking for. You can also read our journal edition, available from Amazon. Please send a few lines of synopsis for any prospective piece when submitting.

Similarly, should you be interested in arranging an Author Platform on our site, please do get in touch.  Author platforms allow writers to promote their work through interviews, articles, blog posts and other means in an ongoing way.
