Submissions Open July 1 / Submissions Close August 31

The Charleston Anvil is Charleston, WV's black and white showcase of admixt art and literature- equal parts indie zine, underground comic, pulp magazine, anthology collection, and the avant-garde, composed entirely of volunteered works

Submissions can be as ambitious or modest as desired, as long as it can be printed on the page of a paper magazine. Prose, poetry, art, short stories, comics, stories either with or without illustrations, essays, photography and more will all be considered, and collaborations are encouraged. The Anvil welcomes all genres, included but not limited to fiction, non-fiction, sci-fi, horror, memoir, slice-of-life, romance, and mystery. All mixed media is accepted as well, and no single style or subject matter will be outright rejected. Contributors are welcome no matter what their level of experience, and need not be "established" in any way.

Please keep in mind, however, that only finished works will be accepted, and the magazine itself will be printed in black and white.
