Sugared Water seeks image-dense works dealing closely with identity, self, and the journey. Though our current reading period has no set theme, we regularly enjoy poems and short essay or fiction with a little folklore involved.
Full guidelines here.
3-5 poems at a time considered. Up to 4,000 words in prose (micro & flash essay & fiction very much wanted). Art, illustrated/visual essay, sequential art, & comics also considered. November 1, 2015 - January 1, 2016.
Our issues are handbound in editions of 100 to 150 (hand-printed covers)—this is both a lit mag & collectible art object. Print only (for now).
If we could candy words, we’d eat them to bellyaches every afternoon. We carry journals and collect chapbooks like Smaug ripping through a gold-sequin disco. If we’re lucky enough to leave something behind that enriches the dialogue of writerly types around the world, so much the better. Send us your stuff—we’ll only hoard it for a little while.
