I have the pleasure of working with some great people co-editing the poetry submissions for Indigo Rising UK Magazine
Please do send any poetry, prose, flash fiction or art to us at the following addresses:
Submissions can be up to 2500 words. We will make exceptions based on the quality of the piece. We are looking for high quality, literary pieces as long as they are creative and original.
Submission no longer than 750 words. We are looking for inspiring, original pieces of fiction.
Submit up to six poems at a time, no longer than forty lines each. Any forms are fine. Subject matter can be anything. Originality is important.
We are looking for abstract, authentic and surreal art and photography. Pieces that have a personal touch and generate deeper understandings.
Look forward to hearing from you! 🙂

Once submitted, work may not subsequently be published elsewhere (including self-publishing, e.g. on a blog) for a period of one month (creative) and 2 months (other). Please do not submit your work if it is already published elsewhere. Rejected work may be resubmitted after a period of 1 month. The same piece of work may not be submitted more than 3 times, however an individual is welcome to submit as many different pieces of work as they like.
So what are you waiting for…get emailing!!!
With perfect nail polish
and leather in her eyes,
past the whips
past the chains
past the collars
to claim her place at the bar.
Breathplay demo tonight scratched
in chalk on the blackboard.
Eyes inspect the room for prey
over the pet
over the pup
over the slut
before they settle on the one
Hand on his neck she gusts through his lungs.
Dragging him home she marks him
chipping away old girlfriends
peppering herself over him
seasoning him to her liking.
He will follow her lead
kiss the calluses from her feet
until she smiles
until she laughs
until she leaves.
