We're looking to bring on 2-3 Assistant Editors.


Read more & apply 



smoke + mold is now accepting submissions of fiction, nonfiction, and really any other form you think might be suitable for this project, 3000 words or less. While the main focus of the journal is prose, we do publish some poetry when it aligns with our theme. As long as this message is still up, submissions are still open.


We’re especially interested in publishing more critical work. Do you have a take on nature writing in the Anthropocene? A particular book that you feel was overlooked by the mainstream, or whose nature themes flew under the radar? A film that you can’t stop talking about to people who maybe don’t care? We care. Books/media reviewed do not need to be by trans authors, but obviously very cool if they are. 


Please email your work as a .doc, or .docx to, along with a short bio. This is a small operation, but we do our best to respond to submissions in 4-6 weeks. All accepted work will be compensated with a $50 contributor fee. Thank you for entrusting us with your work,


Cal Angus, Editor
