PFN – Arkana: A Literary Journal of Mysteries and Marginalized Voices Seeks Submissions on the Theme: “Micro”
April 2 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
As a journal of mysteries and marginalized voices, we’re looking for quality writing that is thought-provoking and literary. We are especially interested in work that explores the identities and experiences of writers from the Delta region, BIPOC, immigrant, LGBTQ+, women, disabled, and neurodivergent writers, the resource-poor, writers over 50, those who have experienced or been impacted by incarceration, or anyone whose voices have traditionally been silenced.
MICRO ISSUE SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
Submissions for Arkana’s 14th issue, The Micro Issue, are open from October 17, 2022, until April 2, 2023.
Fiction: We’re looking for polished fiction of up to 500 words. We love stories that share a new perspective, keep us awake at night, or otherwise pluck at our heartstrings. Send us a story that only you can tell, writing that evokes visceral reactions and, perhaps most of all, seeks a deeper emotional truth.
Creative Nonfiction: Send us your essays, your memoirs, and your investigations of up to 500 words. Submit your personal essays, investigations, and counternarratives. We want to hear a strong voice full of local color. Ultimately, we want nonfiction that moves from an individual’s unique experience to greater universal resonance.
Poetry: Submit up to five poems of ten lines or less. We are moved more by an aesthetic than by any particular trend or fashion in the world of contemporary poetry. We like beauty, music, and a personal interpretation of poetic forms. Your poetry submission should tell us an emotional story with something at stake. Great art is inherently unsafe.
