One of my favourite genre mags...

For Samhain, we want to see poetry, flash fiction and visual art involving the spookier side of folklore, mythology, and fairy tales – ghosts, demons, witches, superstitions, dark fairies – as well as autumn traditions and lore, anything involving the harvests and preparing for winter, and the festivals and feasts of Samhain, All Hallows/All Saints/All Souls themselves.

Snakeskin magazine has a 'beastie' theme for November:
The November issue of Snakeskin will be a very special issue, guest-edited by Jessie Randall, on the subject of mythical and legendary creatures. Here is Jessie's call for submissions:


CALL FOR CRYPTOZOOLOGY POEMS

The November, 2020 issue of Snakeskin will be a theme issue on cryptids such as Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, the Jersey Devil, and others. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cryptids for a fairly comprehensive list of cryptids.
Send up to five poems to jessyrandall@yahoo.com. Put your poems in the body of the email, please – no attachments. Simultaneous submissions are fine. The deadline is October 1, and you can expect a response by October 15.
