A message to our readers: The Collapsar is currently on hiatus as we sort out some editorial changes. We hope to resume publishing some time in 2019, and have closed submissions for the time being. We thank you for your continued support.
What we want to read is work grounded in a very real sense of its own world, work that bristles with richness, deeply imagined and cunningly portrayed–whatever that might look like. We’re interested in high culture, low culture, and low-high culture, whatever that means. A generosity of spirit is what we want to present.
The best way to get an idea for what we publish is, of course, to read the magazine. We’ve published new writing by Amber Sparks, Brian Oliu, Elisa Gabbert, Wendy C. Ortiz, Michael J. Seidlinger, Robert Kloss, Kathleen Rooney, Cari Luna, Juliet Escoria, Tobias Carroll, Leesa Cross-Smith, Gabriel Blackwell, Jill Talbot, Ed Skoog, Jeff Jackson, and a host of others since our inception in 2013. We’re thrilled to consider yours.
Head on over to our handy submissions manager, Submittable, where you can find genre-specific guidelines and send us things.
