1870 seeks poetry, flash fiction, short fiction

web site

No deadline given

1870 Poetry is open year round to submissions of all kinds. Poetry, Flash Fiction, Short Fiction, Non-Fiction, Opinion, Essay – whatever. We are looking for words that may not be easily defined or clearly designed for a given home. People of the fringe, on the outside, in a place dark and damp and a little unnerving. We don’t want weak minded, tender heart bullshit; rather, we seek the ultimately real. Special consideration given to LGBTQIA themed or writer identified. Labels really don’t matter, ultimately.

No fee, no charge, no shirts, no shoes, no service

While there is no theme, 1870 Poetry will not back away from more mature, explicit material. submissions accepted and posted on a rolling basis.
