The Blind Hem, The Healing Muse, and Cactus Heart are all looking for material

The Blind Hem ( is an online magazine in blog form. Our mission is to portray fashion and personal style in an intelligent & honest way, through words and art. We believe in diversity, inclusivity, feminism and truth.

Our features range from non-fiction to fiction to art and photography. We are interested in the different lenses through which personal style can be viewed – and we are interested in the stories behind the clothes.

The Blind Hem is always looking for new material! Submission must have some connection to fashion and the art of dressing. This doesn’t mean you have to name-drop top designers in your short-story or wax poetic about Louboutin shoes.

This simply means that there must be some connection to clothing – perhaps it is the old t-shirt that evokes a memory, or the outfit that brought the most humiliation. Or it is the appropriation of indigenous cultures by mass-produced clothing. Or the color of a backpack worn by your crush as it recedes down the hall. As long as there is a noticeable connection to the art of dressing, we will consider the piece.

Please send all queries and completed pieces to

The Healing Muse, an annual journal of literary and visual art published by Upstate Medical University's Center for Bioethics and Humanities, is looking for artists and writers for this year's fall publication. Welcomes fiction, poetry, narratives, essays, memoirs, drawings, photography, and graphic art, particularly -- but not exclusively -- focusing on themes of medicine and healing. Deadline: May 1, 2012.

Cactus Heart, a new e-literary magazine, is seeking submissions of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, photos & art. Cactus Heart publishes new and original fiction, poetry, nonfiction, book reviews, drawings, and photography. We seek spiny writing--writing that is sharp, relentless, coursing with energy and able to thrive in the harshest of places, all while maintaining a vulnerable, succulent interior. We want writing and art that make us swoon.
