About

Established in December 2016, Arsenika seeks marginalized voices. We work to uplift those outside the center and believe that identity is not the defining trait of a piece of work, but that unnameable quality that weaves through prose and poetry to give it its nuance. We invite people of all backgrounds to submit to our zine.

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.
