Aunt Chloe: A Journal of Artful Candor

Aunt Chloe: A Journal of Artful Candor

Aunt Chloe is a journal for people who have reclaimed the spaces denied them by cultural and historical tyranny. She belongs to any of us who have been pushed out of the spotlight, yet through art, literature, and dialogue have re-chosen where we belong.

Submission Guidelines
Aunt Chloe welcomes submissions for its 2009 issue. We accept poetry, fiction, nonfiction (essays, articles, reviews, memoir), interviews and conversations, and visual art. We like work that tackles issues of the political, personal, mundane and earth-shattering in artful and candid ways, with the intent of illuminating the overlooked and the disregarded.

Our reading period is September 15-February 1. All submissions must be received by the deadline.
