Sequestrum Literature & Art Journal: Magical Realism

March 19, 2020
Sequestrum Literature & Art Journal: Magical Realism

Call it slipstream. Call it magical realism. Throw around words like cross-genre, urban/high/low fantasy, hard/soft sci-fi, experimental, absurdist, fabulist, weird, surreal, or a regular fairy tale. With so many labels for the same idea, call it whatever you like. We want literary-quality writing with a healthy serving of imagination. Fiction, nonfiction, poetry, or some combination thereof. Make the familiar strange and the strange familiar. Muddy the line between the everyday and the fantastic. We want to lose track of where our world ends and the next begins. Wow us. Thrill us. We’re ready to believe.

Deadline 4/15/20.
