  • APIARY Issue 8

Submissions for APIARY 8 are open. Our theme for our newest issue is SOFT TARGETS

soft target: a person or thing that is relatively unprotected or vulnerable, especially to military or terrorist attack.

We want to talk about vulnerability and violence. About joy and openness in an age of permanent warfare. About strategy and survival in our contested city. About the softness, the wild and monstrous and tender in all of us that was banished to the woods and prowls, growing foot-long acrylic fangs. Call up your contradictions and dreams, your weaponized wantings. Show us a map that leads to the source of our nightmares.

For APIARY 8 we're collaborating with Philadephia’s own Metropolarity, a DIY sci-fi collective of poor, working class & low income trans & queer survivors, mothers, professionals, non-academics, glorious, amorphous border-walking space-dreaming city folk of the African/Caribbean/mestiza/European diasporas. They believe that those without power must take advantage and control of all accessible media outlets. They choose science fiction as their prism to manifest world-paradigms necessary for their survival.

Learn about our submissions specifictions and more on our Submittable pages!

Our editors may not reach a final decision about your piece until several weeks after the close of our submissions period on March 8, 2016, so please be patient in awaiting our response. Please direct other inquiries to mai@apiarymagazine.com and allow two weeks for a response.

Thank you for submitting your work to APIARY! We look forward to reading it.
