Submissions are now open for Shooter’s winter 2022 issue, themed “Dark Arts”.
We’re looking for stories, essays, memoir and poetry to do with enchantment and scheming, in any context. Black magic, witchcraft and wizardry are the obvious subjects, but we welcome wider interpretations of the theme: anything to do with political manipulation, backroom dealings, romantic plotting, duplicitous gamesmanship, or charismatic trickery is sought. As ever, whether rooted in realism or fantasy, supernatural or sci-fi, please ensure writing adheres to a high literary standard.
Writers should send short stories and non-fiction of 2,000-6,000 words and/or up to three poems, adhering to the submission guidelines, by the deadline of November 7th, 2021. Weave your literary magic, make us fall for your poetry, and grip us with your most masterful prose!
