  • Book of Matches Seeks Submissions
  • Deadline info Deadline: August 19, 2022
  • Genre Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, Translations
  • Type Magazine

In an age dominated by our worst tendencies for tribalism, it's more important than ever to celebrate the best in humanity through the very real magic of words. Book of Matches is always interested in protest—interested in protest against the unknowing alive in human existence, in protest against the knowing, too. In essence, Book of Matches celebrates what burns in the dark, and too the assurance of how little this illuminates before going out. Send your most meaningful lies, real lives, and poetry of both that we may see a bit more clearly the stormy seas around us all.
