Call for Submissions: PLAY 

Play isn’t just for kids. Whichever way you play, (whether it’s with form, kinks, words, games, sports, spirits, toys, spells, or characters) we want to see your best experimental work. The editors at filling Station magazine invite submissions of prose, creative nonfiction, poetry, reviews, and art about play for a special themed issue. We want to see experimental work that is whimsical, unexpected, and curious. This may include work with playful subject matter, or which incorporates play into the process of its creation. As an experimental magazine, we want your most unique work. We specifically encourage submissions from creators who identify as women or are gender non-conforming, BIPOC, LGBTQ+, disabled, immigrants, impoverished, survivors, or from other marginalized communities. If you have any accessibility issues with the submissions process, please email or reach out to us through our social media channels. Submit by February 15th, 2022 and check out our SUBMIT page for more details.
