Theme for June 2019:
Please familiarize yourself with our About page to get an idea of what Claw & Blossom are about.
For PROSE, send up to 1,000 words. This can be one piece of flash fiction or CNF, or linked micros.
For POEMS, send one poem per submission.
We do not consider previously-published work. This includes work posted on personal blogs and social media accounts.
We accept and encourage simultaneous submissions. Should your work be accepted elsewhere while under consideration with Claw & Blossom, please withdraw the piece from us as soon as possible by using the Withdraw option in Submittable.
We do not consider multiple submissions. Please submit to either the Poetry category or the Prose category and wait for our response before submitting another piece.
There is no submission fee.
We pay $25 USD per acceptance upon publication via PayPal. (Linked micros are considered one acceptance.)
We publish in March, June, September, and December. We read nearly year-round (the exception being for a two-week period just before each issue is released, so that we can have a little moment to make sure all of our duck-rows are properly quacking, and maybe to drink some hooch).
By submitting your work to Claw & Blossom for consideration, you agree that you understand and accept the following terms:
- That you have actually read our About page, so that you are not sending us work that is wholly incompatible with our stated goals and thereby making our hair fall out in clumps.
- That the work you send Claw & Blossom is of your own making and has not been plagiarized in whole or in part.
- That Claw & Blossom are purchasing the rights to publish your work on our website and to archive that work in our Issues archive.
If your work published with Claw & Blossom is later reprinted elsewhere, we would appreciate acknowledgement of first publication.
We accept submissions through Submittable:
