Submissions for Issue 5 now open

by on January 12, 2017

Hello All, thank you for everyone who has read, submitted, and otherwise contributed to Angel City Review thus far. Over the past two years we have worked hard to build a journal that is inclusive, open, and representative of the actual community that we live in.

There is always more work to be done and we hope that everyone will help us in this process. We definitely would love more submissions from women, people of color, queer or non gender identifying individuals, writers with disabilities, and everyone in between.

We want writing that delves into the depths and gets extremely personal. Work that pushes boundaries or tries something interesting and new.

While we are primarily focused on writers in the Los Angeles County and surrounding regions, we publish work from writers across the west coast of the United States.

We accept poetry, fiction, non-fiction works.

Submissions can be sent to submissions @ angelcityreview.com  and will close April 30th- Please check submission guidelines for more info.

Issue One Preview: Poem by Keith Niles

All The Crap You Keep Inside Grows Sunflowers
By Keith Niles

All the crap you keep inside grows sunflowers and
bell peppers and opium poppies that brood in the
richest darkest loam for weeks and months in the
suppression of the sadness of your unfulfilled visions
before something gives way to the sun and the
heart blooms black and bursts forth with awful
truths. I’m afraid I may have a nervous breakdown
before long, the seeds are too strong and these
flowers are those no one wants to see, they bring
death to things and sadness to the land. I’m sad, I’m
sad, and I just really can’t say right now, you know,
the garden needs all the quiet it can get, the
garden has a need, it needs to grow.
