One of my favourite genre mags...

For Samhain, we want to see poetry, flash fiction and visual art involving the spookier side of folklore, mythology, and fairy tales – ghosts, demons, witches, superstitions, dark fairies – as well as autumn traditions and lore, anything involving the harvests and preparing for winter, and the festivals and feasts of Samhain, All Hallows/All Saints/All Souls themselves.

Snakeskin magazine has a 'beastie' theme for November:
The November issue of Snakeskin will be a very special issue, guest-edited by Jessie Randall, on the subject of mythical and legendary creatures. Here is Jessie's call for submissions:


CALL FOR CRYPTOZOOLOGY POEMS

The November, 2020 issue of Snakeskin will be a theme issue on cryptids such as Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, the Jersey Devil, and others. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cryptids for a fairly comprehensive list of cryptids.
Send up to five poems to jessyrandall@yahoo.com. Put your poems in the body of the email, please – no attachments. Simultaneous submissions are fine. The deadline is October 1, and you can expect a response by October 15.

Deep Earth Collection 2: Furrows

We are looking for beautiful works exploring Furrows; fields and farming, working with (or against) the natural environment, traditional childhoods, countryside life and imagery around earth and growth are all interpretations of this theme we’d particularly like to see, and we will be selecting work for inclusion based on how well it relates to these themes. Work centred around other lifecycles, or features such as “furrowed brows” that use the imagery of a furrow outside of farming will also be considered, although we would prefer if these works contained some link to the natural world

Interesting, MacPhil! Do they like r&r at all, or do they prefer free verse? :)
