Amethyst Arsenic

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Managing Editor, Samantha Duncan
Guest Editor, Jasmine An
We are currently open from March 1-March 31, 2017. Anticipated release of the Spring 2017 issue is May 30, 2017.

Amethyst Arsenic is open to all forms of poetry. Within this broad scope, we have a preference for well-crafted imagery that brings a fresh use of language and perception. We also lean towards vignettes, moments, stories and meditations on people, objects, and scenes; the intimate whether confessional or persona, versus broad commentary. For an idea of our aesthetic, please visit us.

We pay $10 per accepted poem. Additionally, our featured artist will receive $50. Issue is limited to 10 poets.
