We want your bodies.

Cactus Heart seeks new and original poetry, fiction, nonfiction, & art on the theme of ‘Bodies’, for our December (#14.5) print issue.

Send us work that is physical, visceral, organic. We want writing and artwork that smells, that pulses, that inhabits the space that makes us human and animal. Send us organs, flesh, bones, fingernails, teeth, skin, skulls. Give us words for what we’ve seen of bodies but never said, or show us bodies as we’ve never seen them before.

See our basic guidelines for some suggestions about what we like and don’t like. Please DO NOT send us anything that objectifies or exploits the body.

Prose: 3,000 words max.
Poetry: 3 poems per submission
Art: black & white or grayscale; we particularly want life drawing and wildlife drawing
