note: we are not a horror site. we are open to all works.
south broadway ghost society is a literary journal that publishes ghosts and non-ghosts.
we will be nominating selections from our site for the pushcart prize in 2019.
we like to feature work that is sacred and profane, work that challenges perception, work that exists in grey spaces. ghosts are an important part of our identity as a journal. we believe in creating resonance in conversations that deserve to be had.
we believe in the identity of spirit, lifting up that which is sacred. the magician card in tarot comes to mind. how does your work act as a gateway between a higher force and the material world?
we also believe in that which is buried. stories and art that dig up things that may otherwise go unseen. the skeletons hidden beneath the ground.
finally, we believe in poltergeists. in being menacing, playful, having fun.
if you would like to remain anonymous, a ghost # will be assigned to you to correspond to your work. if you would like credit, you deserve credit. we are open to all art.
things we like:
poetry, flash fiction, essays, comics, photography, drawings, doodles, video, experimental work
LGBTQIA+ and POC artists are highly encouraged to submit.
please submit no more than five works at a time to firstname.lastname@example.org.
fiction pieces should not exceed 2,000 words.
non-fiction, essays, etc. can be any length.
.docs are nice, but not necessary.
response times vary, but may be up to three months.
all rights revert back to the authors/artists upon publication. we only ask that you make a note that they first appeared here.
we do not consider work that has been previously featured on online journals or personal blogs. we do consider work from collections, such as short story collections and anthologies. please let us know if your work has been previously published.
if we have featured your work in any regard, consider yourself a member of the South Broadway Ghost Society, and feel free to share that information with others as you see fit. that being said, if you choose to be anonymous, we do ask that you do not reveal your ghost # to others.
also, rules are made to be broken.
unfortunately, we cannot pay contributors as of yet for their contributions.
