Subs for Issue 002: Dreams are currently OPEN from November 31st-December 31st.

With each submission, please include a brief cover letter, your first and last name, a 3-4 sentence third-person bio, and your social media handles. We ask for first serial rights to accepted works, but your rights will return to you once the issue is released. We also accept simultaneous submissions to previously unpublished work, just let us know if your work was accepted elsewhere. If your work is not a fit, we will recommend other literary magazines that might be a better home.

Our response time is anywhere between a few days to a few weeks, but no longer than a month. Feel free to submit a new piece if your work is rejected or follow up if you haven't heard from me after three weeks. 

The best memoirs explore identity, whether it's through the lens of culture, spirituality, sexuality, family, etc. They also bring people and places to life with dialogue, powerful verbs, and vivid imagery. 

Submit no more than one piece of memoir up to 3,000 words as a .doc or .docx to kcbthemag@gmail.com

Give us a peek into your imagination with an evocative flash fiction piece. There are no limits to how bizarre you can be!

Submit no more than three pieces of flash up to 1,000 words each as a .doc or .docx to kcbthemag@gmail.com.

Play with shape, tone, words, and moods with a piece of poetry. We welcome all emotions: sad, mad, happy, confused — whatever! This is a safe space to feel.

Submit 1-5 poems at a time, with each poem on a new page as a .doc or .docx to kcbthemag@gmail.com.

Have something to say, but want to use shapes and colors instead of words? We'll take it. We accept paintings, drawings, photography, collages, and graphically designed pieces.
