A journal for neurodivergent literature and its craft--
Barking Sycamores is a literary journal publishing poetry, short fiction (1000 words or less), and art by neurodivergent (autistic, ADHD, bipolar, dyslexic, etc.) writers and artists.
We seek poetry, short fiction, and art for Issue 4, Winter/Spring 2015. Theme: “The Doors of Perception”. Pieces about doors, perception, and vision are welcome as well as ekphrastic work based on the works of William Blake, Aldous Huxley, or the American rock band The Doors. However, in the end, artists may submit poetry, short fiction, and visual art that interpret the theme as broadly or as narrowly as desired. We also seek essays on neurodivergence and how it impacts the creation of literary works. Artwork submitted may be considered for use as cover art.
The philosophy of our journal is unique, so we ask that interested writers consult our submission guidelines before sending any work to us.
Submission period: October 1 – November 30, 2014.
