~ as you scroll over the drop-down ‘submissions’ menu at the top of hyacinth noir, you may notice some changes to our standard and submissions guidelines, as well as submission methods ~

we would like to remind our readers and writers that we are currently open for Samhain submissions, with the theme ‘queer pieces of the paranormal’ for fiction and poetry; we also are accepting non-fiction and photograph/artwork beyond the limitations of the theme, but still within the realm of paganism, Samhain and queer

there have also been a few changes implemented to hyacinth noir’s literary style, which can be read at our submissions page.  Briefly, a small token payment to our contributors, the issues will be released +/- three days surrounding the sabbat, and we have extended the word limit for most submission types

there have been a few additional updates to the standard guidelines for submitting to hyacinth noir, as well as the submission guidelines; please review these prior to submitting

we accept e-mail as well as contact form submissions (please note the style limitations to the contact form); the submissions form can be found here

all of our new guidelines can be found beneath the ‘submissions’ drop-down menu; if you have any questions regarding our new guidelines, please e-mail or leave a comment
