The Blemished

Posted: October 9, 2014 in Uncategorized


We are open for submissions!

The Blemished is a magazine by and for high school students. If you are currently a student in grades nine through twelve, we want to hear from you. 
The Blemished is a patient-run literary magazine inside an adolescent short-term psych hospital. It was birthed on a psych ward and every submission will enter the same psych ward. Your very words will penetrate the locked doors. We’re waiting to read what you have. Please submit. Send us your poetry, your short stories, your artwork, your photographs. It gets boring around here at times. So entertain us. Make us think. Make us cry. We want to laugh, but some of us have forgotten how. We lost ourselves somewhere out there. Help us make sense of this crazy world we live in.
The theme for our first issue is “Trapped Between Perfect and Broken.” Send us stories and poems about being blemished, about feeling lost, about feeling invisible, about fallen angels, about blemished superheroes, about the forgotten and the damned. Surprise us!
The submission period is from September 15 to February 15.
All submissions should be submitted through our submission manager. Please read the Submission Guidelines before you submit. I know. Rules suck. But they make us abide by them, and they will make us reject your submission if it doesn’t follow the guidelines.

When you are ready submit here.
