We now are accepting submissions for two issues, as well as open-themed contributions.

“Wall of Resistance”

We are accepting contributions to our current, ongoing state-of-emergency special issue in response to the election. Contributions are welcome throughout the first 100 days of the new administration.

Submit to:

“Time, time, time … see what’s become of me”


As fall turns to a hazy shade of winter, our next issue theme explores how the history of L.A. (past, present and yet to come) provokes change: in our lives, in stories, in imagery and in songs that interweave iconic voices, characters, events and places in Los Angeles and beyond that create our sense of “self” — who we’ve become or who we’re destined to be.

We’re excited to share your work that relates to the theme, expressed through fiction and non-fiction, poetry, photography, art, video, music and more. Submit to us!

Submission deadline: Ongoing

Issue launch: February 14, 2017
