Rather overlap, overlap, lineage, nonlinear, lines, lines, lines, on the body, or often not on the body, where are the scars that we can feel but can’t see? What is the evidence? Why do we need it? What are the spaces in between?”

I wondered how and why this lit mag came to be, so I asked their staff and they kindly replied. See my interview and submission guidelines below.

HP STAFF: Hematopoiesis is the body’s method of creating new blood cells. As a digital publication, our intention is to offer refuge to this process while disrupting dominant conversations on (dis)embodiment.

Speculative City is an upcoming online literary magazine whose first issue will be published digitally to the public in February 2018. They are currently open for submissions relevant to the magazine mission and issue theme with focus on science fiction, fantasy, and magical realism.
