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.


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 narrative presence.


Please familiarize yourself with Claw & Blossom's About page, which describes our needs in greater detail.

THEME for June 2019:

GNAW


For PROSE, send up to 1,000 words. This can be one piece of flash fiction or CNF, or linked micros.

We do not consider previously-published work.

We accept simultaneous submissions. Should your work be accepted elsewhere while under consideration with Claw & Blossom, please withdraw the piece from us immediately.

We do not consider multiple submissions. Please wait for a response before submitting another piece.

We pay $25 USD per acceptance upon publication via PayPal. (Linked micros are considered one acceptance.)

  • That you have actually read our About page, and are not attempting to send us work that bears no resemblance to the work we are seeking. Take it from us: don't mess with bears.
  • That the work you send Claw & Blossom is of your own making and has not been plagiarized in whole or in part.
  • That Claw & Blossom are purchasing the rights to publish your work on our website and to archive that work in our Issues archive.
