Scorpion Baby values carving out a space for stories and voices that often go unheard. This means we’re specifically looking for writers who come from underrepresented, marginalized perspectives, such as queer, POC, women, nonbinary and trans, disabled, and working-class voices.

Our commitment to carving out this space applies to genre as well; we’re interested in writing that straddles the line between different forms. Work that you might find difficult to classify. We’re particularly interested in stories, memoir, and poetry that plays with the speculative, fantastical, science fictional or mythic.

Currently, we’re interested in pitches for chapbook-length manuscripts in fiction, poetry, and nonfiction.
