From Manzano Mountain Review:

Manzano Mountain Review is an online literary journal based in New Mexico seeking submissions for its second issue.

We like writing that is honest, gritty, vulnerable. Give us plot, but not too much. We want characters like us—complicated, flawed, human. Discomfort us. Provoke awe. Melt our brains.

The theme for Issue No. 2 is “Summer Haunts/ Hauntings.” 

Aesthetically, the two editors, Justin Bendell and Kristian Macaron, value writing that crosses boundaries, treads unfamiliar ground, but also work that is rooted in place. Readers will find examples of this in our issues.

Justin likes terse, lyrical fiction with well-conceived plots. He is not afraid of genre writing (especially mysteries and westerns), though he thinks the best writing transcends genre.

Kristian likes writing that is exploratory, narrative, and unexpected. Words that teach and connect the reader/writer through image/metaphor/place.

Submissions are open to all writers.

We seek prose (< 3,000 words), flash fiction, poetry, visual art, and photography. We do not pay.

The deadline for Issue No. 2 is April 1st, 2018.
