Reminder! Call for Submissions: “On Monsters”


Last month, we announced that this October, we’ll be exploring the theme, “On Monsters.”

We want to hear about your thoughts on monsters! Who or what are they? How have you defeated or tamed or reconsidered them? What does it mean to be monstrous? What makes a monster, and how can we subvert tropes around monsters and monstrosity?

We’re accepting essay submissions through Saturday, August 31. You’ll find our full guidelines at, and can submit through, our Rumpus submission manager powered by Submittable.
