Both punk and noir are words that have been so overused and misused that they pretty much mean nothing now. They’re random adjectives that are regularly added in a scattershot way, so combining them allows a lot of scope for the site. No sense? Nonsense!
Punk Noir Magazine is purportedly an online arts and entertainment magazine that looks at the world at its most askew, casting a bloodshot eye over films, music, television and more. There are interviews, reviews, news, poetry, fiction, micro fiction, and flash fiction. And some other stuff too, I’m sure. Indeed, a veritable cornucopia of carryings on.
We’re currently open for submissions!
We welcome any style and genre. We love poetry, fiction, and are also open to book and music reviews.
Please send us up to 5 poems or one piece of fiction at a time, not to exceed 3.5k words.
We aim to get back to you and have your story up on our website within 3 weeks. If you haven’t heard back from us by then, please get in touch. We are sorry we can’t give feedback to the pieces we decline at the moment but hope to be able to do so in the future.
Due to the high number of submissions, please allow a couple of weeks before submitting to us again.
Any gratuitous discrimination, excessive violence or scenes of sexual abuse (by that we mean that do not serve the purpose of a good story or poem) will be immediately rejected.
Email us your best punk noir ramblings along with a short bio and an optional photo at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to reading your work!
