Next call: 42.1 "Magic",  open from May 1 - July 31, 2018

Break out your spell books, herbs, top hats, star charts, mystical amulets, talking animals, and arcane wisdom, because Room's Magic issue is coming!

Editor Arielle Spence and Assistant Editor Yilin Wang invite you to submit your best poetry, fiction, CNF and visual art that explores magic in all its forms. Let your imagination run wild: take us to fantastical worlds, alternate realities, or show us the magical in the quotidian. Send us your fantasy, your speculative, your magic realism, your afro-futurism and #blackgirlmagic but don’t be afraid to transmogrify genre expectations and pull something totally unexpected from your sleeve. Underrepresented writers—including but not limited to women and nonbinary writers who are Black, Indigenous, people of colour, queer and/or disabled—are especially encouraged to submit.
