TRXST NO1 (pronounced "trust no one") a folio of Black + Trans/GNC Writing on the super-natural & para-normal.
edited by jayy dodd & Casey Rocheteau
call for submissions: The Black “normal” forms its own spectrum from fantastic to fearsome. Since the Black person & objectively the Black body has been read through OTHER normals, “supernatural” or parallel myths get (mis)read — consider then when calibrating a frequency to the Black paranormal? As we navigate the humanities we make & refuse every day what unexplainables keep us going. This issue addresses nature, the outside, the atmosphere as a site of Black paranormal activity. Are the ghosts trans? Are the demons cis? Are you certain the trees don’t all know each other & have intricate handshakes? Send your speculative fictions, long-form poetic consideration, prose spells & declassified creative nonfic.
email your work to with "TRXSTNO1 Submission" in the subject line.
smoke + mold will publish two special issues each year. Calls for special issue submissions, like the one posted above, will be listed here. Regular submissions are currently closed, and will reopen in 2020.
