Scum Mag 45

About

Scum is an online literary magazine, launched in February 2013. We aim to deliver new writing a couple times a week and publish fiction, memoir, rants, and basically whatevz. Scum has filthy feminist leanings and a disregard for propriety. Scum is for people who haven’t figured their lives out yet but will probably get there one day. It’s basically like that Miley Cyrus song “The Climb” except that it is not like that at all.

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.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
