Submissions are currently open for the second issue, coming out in March 2018.

SCAB is interested in everything experimental, weird, alternative, fucked-up, extreme and/or queer (in every sense of the word). Erotic, especially homoerotic, and/or gender-bending stuff is very welcome.


Send prose (1 piece at a time, up to 2000 words) or poems (up to 2 pieces at a time, any length). SCAB welcomes any genre and form but is especially interested in experimental pieces and alt lit. Please send everything in doc or docx format.


Send photographs (webcam selfies are highly encouraged!), drawings, paintings and/or mixed media pieces (up to 3 pieces at a time, in JPEG format; the editor will contact you later if a better quality version is needed). Any and every subject or theme is welcome. (Except child pornography. That’s not welcome.)

Send all submissions to this address:

Please only submit in one genre at a time and wait ’til you get a response before sending something new. The usual response time is a few weeks.

No previously published pieces please. Simultaneous submissions are welcome but if your piece gets accepted elsewhere, please shoot me a message about it.

SCAB is a baby. That said it’s currently unable to pay for accepted submissions with other than publicity and a free PDF copy of the issue your work appears in.
Naturally, my long term goal is to make this big and to be able to pay real money to each and every one of you who contribute to the existence of SCAB – as soon as possible.

Upon acceptance the editor will contact you and ask you to include the name under which you’d like to be published, a few sentences about yourself and a social media link (if you’d like) in your response.
