Skidrow Penthouse 14

About

Skidrow Penthouse is looking for writing and art informed by environmental and moral collapse; disturbing, saddened work inhabited with obscure species and misunderstood people; work that’s keenly aware of the infinities in a single object and the scattered worlds between falling wires of rain. No adjective/adverb haters. No sermons on Eros. No disciples of Bukowski. No finger-wagging pedants demanding obedience to metrical ennui. No one afraid of their own mangled music. Be broken yet fearless. Narrate what is troubling to the timid among us. Trust the beautiful and hellish expanses of your dream-infested typing hands.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
