Cactus Heart seeks new and original poetry, fiction, nonfiction, & photography. We want spiny writing & art—sharp, relentless, coursing with energy and able to thrive in the harshest of places, all while maintaining a vulnerable, succulent interior. Make us swoon. See more thoughts on what the editors want to see here.

The specifics: We are a quarterly e-magazine, published as a full-color PDF. We also produce two print versions each year, separately from the e-issues. For both electronic and print issues, we acquire first-time publication rights until the journal is published; after publication, rights revert to the author/artist. Payment for publication is a free copy of the issue in which your work appears.

Submit via Submittable.
