Black Heart Magazine

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

PLEASE NOTE: Black Heart is currently CLOSED to regular submissions as we compile our August issue. We will reopen to new submissions as of July 31, 2017.

Black Heart accepts submissions in all genres of previously unpublished works of poetry and short fiction, with a word count of 2,500 words max.

As of 2017, we publish triannual (3 times/yearly) themed issues, beginning with our DISARM anthology in April 2017. August's theme is "Summer's End," and December's theme is "Holiday Hell." Please ONLY submit work that conform (however loosely) to these themes, during the windows noted below. Additional info will be added to this page as new themes for the 2018 publishing cycle are developed.

Please read and abide by the specific guidelines (listed below) for the section to which you'd like to submit. We look forward to reading your work.
