Cactus Heart seeks new and original poetry, fiction, nonfiction, book reviews, art & photography for its second issue. 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.

We are an e-literary magazine, published as a full-color PDF. Please purchase a back issue if you’d like to explore the aesthetic.

The reading period for Issue #2 is open from May 15 to August 1.
