Welcome to Blood Lotus!
The editors of Blood Lotus are passionate writers and fierce critics. We know what we want: language and imagery that is fresh, evocative, and takes risks. In poetry, we'd like to see anything from form poetry that masterfully adheres to or innovatively breaks the rules to free verse that has been consciously shaped and crafted. In fiction and nonfiction, please show us the unpredictable. When we publish something, it's our way of saying to our friends and the world, "You have GOT to read this!"
Are you up for it?
