SHARKPACK Poetry Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Fathom / SHARKPACK seeks writing of peril, philosophical power, experiment. We care for voices willing to speak in their own alien throats. Challenge us.

Our sixth issue for SHARKPACK Annual is themed DRY. Deserts, maybe. Deep deserts. Gypsum rose. What's butterless? What's parched, scorched, baked? Sobriety. The waggish and the sardonic or the sterile. The gasping and also the crisp in wine and the tart, piquant. Maybe bones. 


Poems any length, fiction + NON- up to 1000 words. We also have a special interest in photography for this issue.


Contributors receive a small honorarium of $20. The creative work that most excites us in a given issue will win the Prospero Prize—$150 cash and feature placement in the Annual. Generally, 1-2 Prizes will be awarded.


All writers are asked to submit their works as a single document, preferably a .pdf. Visual artists and animators / game developers should select the appropriate high-quality medium best suited to their particular work. 

SHARKPACK Annual will ask you to grant us worldwide electronic publishing rights and worldwide print publishing rights. We are happy to receive grossly good work that's already been published so we may feature it again.


Should your writing be accepted for the magazine, a full contract will be e-mailed to you.


We're most grateful for your interest in SHARKPACK Annual, and look forward to reviewing your work.
