We are looking for writing to match our slogan, ‘pagsulat sa mga bulaklak, which means, ‘when writing on flowers.’ Flowers are gentle and fragile, yet convey certain emotions and messages, depending on its species. We want your coded words, your cries for attention.
We want the soft and untouched, the broken and crumbling; we want voices to share their pain, so we may heal together. We want tender love stories and wrenching heartbreak; we want to be moved to tears.
Please visit the submissions page for further information on general and issue submissions.
Morgan, our Creative Writing Editor, had this to say:
"Please stop submitting different works with the same issues, especially if I've addressed these issues and how to fix them in the last submission round.
Also, please only submit once during a reading period."
