Calling all Monsters
Minor Arcana Press desires your writing, visual art, and beyond for a new journal of high-, low-, and no-brow content: Monster Fancy, the magazine for the discerning monster enthusiast.
Don’t limit yourself to genres. Monsters are bigger than horror, greater than simple fear, and not confined to neat categories. Get intricate. Get intimate. Genre and form are entirely open. Go wild:

Lies. Truth. Fiction. Friction. Poetry. Drama. Criticism. Magic spells.
Hybrids. Experiments. Visual art. Sounds and visions for the website.
Translations, mistranslations, and mutations of language.
Shifts of shape; Others; explosive disquiet; messy, ugly things; myths, fairy tales, urban legends; humor, satire, and parody; disability, disease, and power; chastity and queerness; shock and its antithesis; horrors of the supernatural and the all too banal; academic and anti-academic; punk and polished; rampant and restrained; Monsters.
