Payment: $25 for personal essays and $5 per poem
Theme: Honest experiences, very open-ended, read below
You know that feeling when you have a lot to say about something and you just don’t know how to get it out but you know your words belong somewhere?
We want to be a home to those projects.
Whether you offer a short story you wrote about an anthropomorphized coffee maker falling in love in outer space, or that piece of prose poetry you’ve been working on about how your Amazon Prime orders increase significantly when you’re feeling depressed, or the zine you’re making about how the world seems like it’s on fire, we want to hear from you and help you share your story. Consider this a space to talk about your growth, your mental health, or a place for that bizarre piece of short fiction you think deserves to find a home.
We are currently seeking non-fiction, fiction and poetry.
In a time where the internet can be filled with listicles and a whole lot of repetitive nonsense, Talk Vomit aims, above all else, to be an honest space where writers of all identities, styles and experience levels are able to share and amplify their voices in what often feels like a world of endless gatekeeping.
Currently, we are able to pay writers $25 for personal essays (we hope to add short stories to this as soon as possible), and $5 for poems, playlists and art.
