Blood Tree Literature favors lyrical pieces that do not withhold depth or resonance. With that in mind, submit to us your best, the box under your bed marked UNSHARABLE, the orphan poem or black sheep fiction. Send us your experimentals; be vulnerable, be calculated. 

Please note that we don’t typically gravitate toward work that is Y.A. nor rhyming in nature. 

Details:

· Maximum word count: 2500. We’d like to keep it flash-y.

· Simultaneous submissions are allowed under the condition that you withdraw your work immediately if it is accepted elsewhere.

· Our current response time falls between 3-6 months.

Hybrid can be defined as the undefinable. It is the crossroad between genres and forms and otherwise exhibits unusual qualities that may be considered unconventional.
