Barking Sycamores is a literary journal entirely edited and operated by queer, neurodivergent people of color. We seek poetry, short fiction, creative nonfiction, hybrid genre works (8,500 words or less), and art by neurodivergent writers and artists for our unthemed Issue 15. SUBMISSION PERIOD: September 1 – October 31, 2017.

We also seek essays on the impact of neurodivergence on the creation of literary works (8,500 words or less) and book reviews (1,000 words or less).

The philosophy of our journal is unique, so we ask that interested creatives consult our submission guidelines before sending any work to us. Our guidelines are available on our Submittable page and on our general guidelines page.
