About

The UNreligious, NONfamily oriented literary and art magazine. The name of this magazine is generated from a poem about the dysfunctionality of religion and family life, so this is NOT a Christian magazine. Our biases are works that relate to issues such as politics, sexism, society, and the like, but are definitely not limited to such. We publish good work that makes you think, that makes you feel like you’ve lived through a scene instead of merely reading it. If we had to use two words to describe what we want, they would have to be intelligent and powerful. Keep that in mind.

Fiction Open

If it relates to how the world fits into a person’s life (political story, a day in the life, coping with issues people face), it will probably win us over faster. Oh, and please tell the story like it actually happened. What makes a story believable is the detail given in it that pulls the reader in. Make our reader see the scene, smell the food, feel the wind on their face. They’ll remember the story more when they put an issue down if they feel like they lived the story instead of merely reading it. They can take something from it, and when they do you know you’ve done something right.

Poetry Open

We accept work of almost any genre, but we’re not keen on rhyme for rhyme’s sake, and we’re definitely not keen on religion poems (look at our current issue for a better idea of what we’re like). We are also not keen (meaning, it’s best not to send it to us for consideration) poems with repeated or intricate indentations. If the poem cannot read well without the mass special indentations, then it’s probably not a good enough poem for publication at Scars. Oh, and we do accept longer works, but within two pages for an individual poem is appreciated.
