Déraciné: Now Seeking Submissions

Déraciné is an online journal of dark fiction, poetry, and art. A déraciné  is a person who feels displaced, and Déraciné magazine hopes to raise awareness of psychological issues and feelings of displacement. Using elements of the literary gothic, horror, and fantasy, Déraciné explores the shadow of the psyche. To get a sense of what they publish, you can read past issues online.

Déraciné is published as an attractive, downloadable PDF. They’ve been around since 2017, and so far they’ve published four issues with around thirty contributors each.

Deracine accepts submissions from July 10th through October 10th for their winter edition, and from December 10th through March 10th for their summer edition. They usually respond to submissions within one month, although sometimes they might take longer.

Authors of fiction may submit up to 8,000 words. Authors of flash fiction may submit up to two pieces, 1,000 words or fewer each. Poets may submit up to four poems. All submissions should include a brief bio. Submitting authors should wait for a response before sending more work.

Déraciné accepts submissions via email, not online or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions but ask that authors withdraw work published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work; however, they accept work published on personal blogs or social media.
