Claw & Blossom

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Claw & Blossom are a quarterly online litmag seeking to publish short prose and poetry.


We are looking for compelling narratives and resonant moments involving characters or narrators who are wrestling with life’s impossible problems but who nonetheless seek ways to thrive.


We are fond of tight language and strong, concrete imagery, and we favor work that says something bigger than itself—that reaches outwards towards more questions than answers.


Your work MUST also contain elements of the natural world.

The natural world need not be the main focus of themes or plot lines, but it should have a distinct and critical narrative presence.


Before sending your work, please familiarize yourself with past issues at the Claw & Blossom website. Issue One is currently in process and is scheduled for publication on June 21, 2019.
